Holy crap, how the years have flown by. I started this blog at the end of my senior year in high school with
|I closed my last college production as stage manager.|
.My parents took a picture my picture on the slideshow.
Honestly, I never will be a full time writer. I want a career in theatre and a writing career. I can have both right? There are a lot of young adult writers with other jobs and careers. What can't I be one of them. Writing has my heart, but theatre has my soul. I spoke with a professional stage manager about my future and expectations. He said, "Will you be happy doing anything other than theatre?" Without hesitation I said, "No." It was right then and there when I realized theatre will always be a part of me. I can't change it. As for writing, I can't shake that either. Even if I never get published, I will always be a writer.
Since I'm graduating in a month, I've been getting this question a lot. Sure I have plan. I plan on working in theatre for as long as possible. It's funny that I ever thought I would have any control over this. My resume is out there with several theatre companies, but I am still in limbo. And it SUCKS. I'm not going to comment on the search anymore, be cause if you already go to school with me you know I will not shut up about my future.
Will things be different from now on? Who knows. The four years I've spent running this blog. Haven't been for nothing. I've meet a great community of bloggers and writers through YA Highways Road Trip Wednesday and What's Up Wednesday. I'm going to try to get back into the groove of things, but you know me, breaking promises and being inconsistent is kind of my thing. It shouldn't be, but I have a four year track record of it.
