Ok Autumn: Let’s do this!

10600401_440229266117438_6225406878558100424_n Here’s me being pensive at a street festival. I have no memory of this being taken 🙂 This post completely recants everything from the last post. Fringe totally destroyed me for a few weeks. I didn’t even realize how exhausted I was. But I wasn’t writing very much so I knew something was up. I got my post-birthday head on and an ready for fall. I am traveling A LOT! Which is cool but I’m so binge and purge I sort of wish these 5 trips had happened over the course of the year and not in 4 months! BUT that is not to say I’m not doing any of them. 🙂 I’ll be in Big Bear next week for a three day writing sequestration. Nerd Anarchy my new musical is coming along sweetly. SO FUN! I decided (after tons of organizing) to NOT write Sun Stealers but rather focus on Coriander and Vushi.  I’m also focussing on performing more. The solo show was great but I want to focus on some personal stories that I will be telling around town. We shall see how that goes.  In some ways this is new territory for me in other ways it’s just more of what I’ve been doing since forever. It’s a very LA thing. You get quickly pigeon-holed by whatever you are currently doing. I did Fringe so I’m a playwright. “have you ever done a film?” I get asked. “umm yea duh…” Then I have something in a film festival and people ask if I’ve ever written for the stage. When a possible booker says “oh so you’ve been onstage before?” I try hard to smile (and not roll my eyes) and throw out a few credits. Constantly reinventing yourself even if you aren’t actually. I try to find the sense of humor in it.  Then again I look at my career/life as an artist and all the medium and wacky shit i’ve done and I have to cut the world a break. I mean I can barely keep up with me 🙂
