So I was accepted into the Fresno Fringe Festival this upcoming March 2017 and there is nothing like a deadline to force me to get into high gear.
I have been working on my first full length solo show “Confessions of a Late Bloomer” for quite awhile now and I am ready to put all the pieces together. I have only performed 20 minute excerpts at a time so I have no idea if the whole piece, run together, makes any sense.
The good part about putting together a solo show by a deadline is that it forces me to wear many hats- very quickly. A crash course in production, if you will. I have been wearing my writer’s hat for so long and now I am juggling my actor, sound tech and costume hats all at once within the last week. All of a sudden, I need a haircut, a costume, and a photo shoot completed by next month. Yikes. Fortunately for me, I am good under pressure. Found the beginning of my costume, software for my sound cues, and local photographer that I trust. Now if I could only find reliable internet service so I can continue to update this blog…
Speaking of trials, I only have an hour of internet access as I type this. Apparently I have burned through most of my Verizon data plan already. I usually am not online that much outside of work, so that dinky plan worked for me before. Not anymore. The times they are a changing. Gotta go. Gotta use this internet time wisely. Peace.
