Not because I don’t want to continue blogging… but because there is a shift happening. In particular So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Got Talent are both going on and guess who gets to write those?
But also I have been going back to my writing projects and have been working on a few projects here and there. So the shift of my blogging would probably end up focusing on whatever writing project I am working on…
So what would I reveal?
Why yes… it has been a while and I am well aware of that. So what have I been doing that has been keeping me from writing and blogging?
I’ve been busy. I was on stage or off stage for various shows. Going to see shows in the area… working on my day job, or attempting to blog for Dancing with the Stars.
Eventually balls needed to get dropped because there has been something else that has been keeping my attention:
Or more precisely development. Considering I have a fair number of writing-related projects on back burner and was not able to be a part of any of the summer shows coming up, this has become a rare opportunity to focus on that aspect of my life that I haven’t really touched for years (well more like over a decade and a half but who’s counting really?).
So what does any of this have to deal with the title of this post?
I think I am burned out… at least when it comes to blogging on Pure Dancing With the Stars.
Well I kind of knew that when I wasn’t interested in working through the spreadsheets during the off season in favor of doing more personal stuff. But I think what did it was when I didn’t even have the Pre-Season Elimination post started and the start of the season was a day away, that was when I knew.
It’s not that I am overwhelmed… I am never overwhelmed, I love to keep busy and having a million plus one projects on my plate so every moment of my life is kept busy and if something else were to fall through I could sift through all the umpteen number of projects and work on something else.
I think what is doing it is that I am focusing more and more on being creative as opposed to analytical.
Why yes… I have been quite busy… busy doing a lot of things, seeing shows, going to conventions, listening to audiobooks… here is what is upcoming as soon as I find time to sit down and write them out:
- Christopher Moore’s A Dirty Job
- The Blind Side and other related audiobooks to Michael Oher’s life
- Veronica Roth’s Divergent
- Kill Shakespeare Graphic Novel Vols 1 & 2
- Kill Shakespeare: the staged graphic novel
- Priscilla Queen of the Desert: Chicago Tour Stop
- Catch Me if You Can: Chicago Tour Stop
- Big Fish: Pre-Broadway Engagement
- American Idiot: Chicago Tour Stop
- Anything Goes: Chicago Tour Stop
- Village Theatre Guild’s A Hatful of Rain
- Denver Performance Center’s Sense and Sensibility (Musical)
- Fabletown and Beyond Convention in Rochester, Minnesota
- Disneyland / Disney’s California Adventure (from February)
Yeeeeeaaaaaah, I am a wee busy. Not to mention that I am also in another theatre production (on and off stage work) and have other blogging duties to catch up on….
At least you all will know why I’m a wee slow at the moment. Hopefully I’ll start picking at that mountain before it becomes too high.
For anyone that knows me, you would know that my favorite Shakespeare comedy would be “Much Ado About Nothing” (with “Twelfth Night” being the sentimental second). So when word got around in late 2011 that Joss had completed filming an adaptation of said Shakespeare comedy… let’s just say I got all obsessed about it very very quickly.
Why? Because Joss not only adapted my favorite comedy, but he also brought on board a vast number of actors from his previous projects… and considering how big of a fan I am of the science-fiction / fantasy / comic feel that Joss tends to create… well what do you expect.
That and the fact that I am a MAJOR Nathan Fillion fan (though you probably wouldn’t know it at first glance).
So why am I in such a tizzy? Well because of this:
After several months of being busy non-stop during the days and evenings both on weekdays and weekends I suddenly find myself in a position where I may actually have time to kill.
So now what?
Well… if you have read a few of my previous posts I have left clues here and there as to what I could possibly have on the back burner:
WRITING / BLOGGING PROJECTS
Ever since Seth Rudetsky’s off chance comment of turning the musical Chess into a movie… my imagination has been going into high gear of inspiration of various writing projects that I wanted to get back into or desiring to start again.
Also with various reality television shows coming back in March… my blogging endeavors will take over once again particularly for:
- NBC’s The Voice: Monday, 25 March at 7:00 pm Central
- ABC’s Dancing with the Stars: Monday, 18 March at 7:00pm Central
And hopefully (time permitting) NBC’s new matchmaking reality show:
- NBC’s Ready for Love: Sunday, 31 March 7:00pm Central
Where could you find the above? Well my posts for Dancing with the Stars you can find over at Pure Dancing with the Stars aka PureDWTS.com and all the other would be at Pure TV Network aka PureTVNet.
Someone once told me:
If someone claims to have been in love multiple times, they don’t really know what love is
The irony in this statement is that I remember once upon a time when a small group of us were talking about whether we have ever been in love before. And we went around the group… a few of the people have been in love multiple times or believes that they were in love at the moment. But me? I had to think, I grew to love one guy… I liked others… I was in love with the idea of being in love with another guy… but being in love with someone? Nope, hasn’t happened… at least not the full fledged thereof…
There are some people I know that are with someone because it is comfortable and eventually they have grown to love one another… a kind of jaded view on the concept of love but when you’ve been burned over and over again could you blame them? There are others that jump from person to person to person because chances are deep down the idea an concept of being alone frightens them… even though to every one else they appear to be guy or girl crazy…
I am not saying that I am any better… but speaking as someone that has been alone (voluntarily) for close to seven years straight and makes a conscious effort to be alone after a falling out of a relationship as opposed to jumping straight to the next person waiting in the wings… well I would like to think I have a better feel of the kind of person that I am.
Which is kind of odd that my latest role was the part of Elvira in Munroe Park Theatre Guild’s production of Blithe Spirit. Early in the process the director sat down with myself and a couple of other actors and went into more detail as to how these particular characters are acting and reacting in particular situations.
