remembering and looking ahead...

Sitting here after a few days off from the show, wondering if I should have spent a little more time with my script. I know it pretty well just sitting here running it, but I have a feeling that once I get up on my feet, it'll totally screw me up. Fortunately we still have two more weeks of rehearsals to sort things out. God forbid the day comes when I have to improvise in French.
That's the actual remembering I've been doing... not just musing over the past in a maudlin manner.

I've realized that I need to recommit to writing more. I always seem to have all these plans and ideas that I somehow put off. I'm hoping that when I'm on the road, I'll have more time to do stuff. But I have to start sooner, instead of procrastinating. Because time goes by no matter what, right? I don't know what I'm afraid of exactly. Success? Failure? Just sucking? Putting in the effort and then... nothing? All of the above?

I've been thinking of trying to get some freelance gigs, I've already got some movie reviews lined up for the month of March. I need to bring in some extra cash, plus I need to get the regular writing thing happening.

Back to my script...
