Post A Day Challenge

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 7:00 am

 I began this blog I was posting every day, or at least close to it.  I got tired of making comments about what I was not doing with my writing ambition, which was what the blog was supposed to be about, so I put in fewer posts.  I only reported when I had done some writing worth mentioning.  I joined this challenge though, so I will be writing more again.

Today I went to the rehearsal for the new Primus play after chorus rehearsal, but when I found out the idea the director had to give me a little walk on part in the play I decided it is not worth it.  If she let me do more than that I would gladly participate.

I will not be going to all of the writing groups either.  They are getting too large for my taste and I do not like the liberal views of most of the participants.  I will not change their opinions, nor they mine, so it is best I leave them alone and let them associate with one another.  I will probably go to the journal writing though.  It is a smaller group and we have shared more personally with each other and I like that and would miss it.  I have not gone as regularly as I used to because I got involved with other things that met on the same day and the time overlapped or I just was too tired to get out early in the morning or wanted to do something at home for a change.

I took some African Drum Circle lessons at the Cultural Center recently.  That was fun and so is the Wii bowling, which I do now.  We are going to try other sports, but I think the bowling will be everyone’s favorite.  This week we got a taste of golf.

As for my writing ambition, I haven’t written anything new for some time, but I did submit a query and chapters of one of my works to an agent who said his firm is looking for new clients, published or non-published and one of their specialities is children’s books.  I should be working on a third story of the three-part series my instructor with ICL has requested but I have not begun that yet.  I am one of those last-minute writers.  I think about ideas up until a deadline and can’t make up my mind until I am forced to come up with something quickly.

I did not use this weekly inspiration for my writing today, but maybe I will before my first week of the postaday is over, if I get stuck for ideas.

Update on Primus Play

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 5:38 am

Well, I said I would l keep you up to date on my audition for the Primus play.  It was down to two woman for the part and I did not get it.  The director still wants to have me involved in the play in some way as a walk on character and I may understudy one of the female characters, but I do not feel I could handle all of them as the lady who got the part suggested.  There are four of them but only two have major dialogue.  Still, that would be more than I could memorize by the week in November when it will be performed.  I was disappointed about not getting a role, but I try to tell myself that it is best for me because I have been doing too much running around to programs downtown and not getting things done here and I find I get tired quicker than I did even a year ago.

Today,  (yesterday really) I decided that I needed to work on the book reviews for Children’s Literature.  I wrote up rough drafts for two, but have not typed them yet.  I will work on that later today, (it is a new day already).  And now, I need to get some sleep.
