Wow. What a week! Things are moving and I'm loving it. We are having casting sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday next week and we have a full docket of actors scheduled to come in. Sorting through the submissions has been fun and challenging and I'm really looking forward to seeing what these people bring to the table.
For those of you who find me here through the kickstarter update regarding fundraising, you might have guessed that the immediate need to finance Hell Is... was one of the reasons I finally created a website. But I have been putting off doing this for ages! So I'm actually kind of happy that the kickstarter fundraiser failed, as it pushed me to finally take action and make a website for my creative self. (The hypnotherapy website has been up for years now and needs a serious revamping. But at least I made one and have kept it updated an a fairly regular basis - my presence online as an actor/writer/whatever has been less consistent, to say the least.)
And speaking of hypnotherapy, I've been really busy with my practice, which is exciting in a whole different way. I feel like I'm really helping people and that is definitely a motivator for me. The journey has been interesting - when I first started practicing, I tried to keep my two lives seperate. I didn't think my clients would trust me if they thought I was still an actress, and I was afraid that if people in the industry knew me as a therapist, they wouldn't consider me an artist. What I've discovered is that I can own both; that they don't have to be seperate. And by allowing myself to integrate these different aspects of myself, I am better at both.
Anyway...I'm blogging. Right now it'll probably focus on this production of Hell is Where the Heart Is, but in the future who knows what I'll decide to write about. I'll be filling in those other pages as well - and it should be soon.
And thanks for reading!
