Almost Famous (At Least Practicing)

Okay, I did it! After spending all day yesterday totally alone with my thoughts on what the heck I wanna do with my newfound freelancing freedom, I came to the conclusion that I’m going to do the following three things in the next few months: (1) ROCK: write/record/perform new songs (as my solo act Candy’s Room, of course), (2) WRITE: my blog, a zine, a book perhaps, and (3) WRITE SOME MORE: at least two 100-page scripts.

Oh yeah, I’ve got my work cut out for me. But, at least I’m now clear that these same things I’ve wanted to do the last couple of years are still the things I want to do today! Clarity is key. And practice makes… well, let’s just say after playing a few shows in spring/summer, I need more practice. Got started today!

Hooray for being crazy (and wearing tie-dye often)! I swear, after all this self-indulgence in creative projects over the next few months, I’m gonna go volunteer or do something outside of myself. But for now, it’s me, me, me, me, me! And you? Got any self-indulgence on your agenda? I say, dive in!
