Things are moving forward with Nobody’s Idol. A director has been decided upon, actors have been contacted and a rehearsal is set for Monday. There are still a lot of questions to answer about the work on my end but the actual things needed to make this reading happen are in place. I get kind of antsy when they aren’t which causes me to send emails and facebook messages impulsively/compulsively until my questions have been answered. I imagine it would be annoying on the other end but hopefully they can imagine how it annoying would be on my end as well.
Unfortunately, no music for the musical as of yet. I haven’t written anything good enough to present or that fits with the story. I keep trying to listen to my favorite songs to help inspire me but I end up jealous that I didn’t come with it and being all ‘oh why can’t I’. Which is no help at all. Again, I’m stuck with almost having ideas. Like the songs I want to write are on the tip of my brain, but I just can’t think of them clearly enough to do anything about it.
I really want to give song-writing a shot. After all, I really do plan on writing myself this one woman show with original music. But I know all my reaching for more will only take more time to get to the chosen destination. But who knows? Maybe I’m just forever a student and never a professional. Maybe one day I’ll be able to undo this way of thinking, I suppose after I finally know all there is to know about everything.
Even if this is only a 15 minute piece, I’m really glad that this thing ‘Nobody’s Idol’ which has been on my to-do list/life list for the longest time is finally on it’s way to getting accomplished. For reals. It’s not just a figment of my imagination that will never see the light of day. Maybe I won’t be serving coffee forever. Maybe my thoughts, insights and ideas have merit in this big bad world.
