Man oh man! Intensive voice acting class. Four hours of finding your best character types in monologues in the morning, short lunch, four hours with scene partners into the evening, then another hour of discussion after. LONG day. Tough, but productive. I’m moving right along finding out what’s in MY voice that I can develop to be commercially viable. It is a long road, as are most things worth doing, but exciting. I was so happy I didn’t take in one bit of criticism as personal or as a lack in myself, but was able to translate it all into making my performance better. And I did! My takes improved every time with the direction and I am glad I went. It was very challenging for me. but BCs, No risk, no soar!
Right now still relaxing in my hotel drinking their free coffee. I’m SO tired, I may forgo the pool this time. But I may not. I’ll see how I feel after the coffee kicks in.
Then I’m hoping to write the next show, either here before home, or once I get home, and weather permitting, hike and record tomorrow. Will be happy to see Mark and kitties, but it was kind of fun to be out doing “my thing” solo. Made me feel strong in my identity as Laurie doing what it takes, and proud of myself for dealing with all that came my way.
Have a great day BCs!
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
