Sleepless nights and procrastinating instead of writing.
Why do we do it? I'm currently learning a couple of sketches of Joyce Grenfell's to perform at the Lutterworth WI annual dinner in ten days time. Scary. I've been a guest speaker at the WI, talking about my acting and writing career. But I haven't had to learn someone else's dialogue, or perform it, since I worked on a couple of Chanel Five children series 8 years ago. And television is very different, anyway. If you forget, or fluff a line, you can shoot it again. Not that I ever would. I used to have sleepless nights in those days too. Was it worth it? You bet.
Last night I had one of those 'I can't do this!' nights. Nothing on the television, so I started to read the blogs I follow. And I'm pleased I did. Morgen Bailey's blog is fantastic (You could spend a month reading it.) I remembered a post about a short free book trailer site, and decided to looked into it.
