Just Keep Going
Well, things are not going really well with the acting right now. I have refrained from writing about it because, well, frankly, I have written about this happening a few times in the past and I don't want to sound like a broken record. But I have to write now. This will be short though, I promise. It is a normal part of the process. Slow phases, that is. The funny thing is that it is so easy to stay positive for awhile. But then you get to that point where you feel like you don't know what you are you doing, and that you don't belong in show biz, and you wonder if you will ever get another audition or acting job again. And you feel that way for a bit. Then you remember that acting is the only thing you want to do. And you remember that there was a time when you couldn't even get auditions for student films. And you remember when things have been slow in the past, they always turned around and you will have 5 acting gigs in one week and be so overwhelmed by it all (in a good way). Then you know beneath it all, that you have to stay positive; that in moments like this, your hope that you will make it is all you have. And that's it. You keep going. You keep submitting to projects every day, every hour. You decide to try something new, like a new class for instance. You may even get new headshots. You. Just. Keep. Going. Because you have to.
