I decided that being a freelance writer is just too stable and predictable a career, so I’ve been trying to break into acting.
I had my photographer niece take some headshots for me, put together a talent resume that wasn’t TOO stuffed with outrageous lies (everything on it is true, but a lot of it is kind of old), and started trying to get gigs. I signed on to work as a movie extra and had a couple of (unpaid) shoots for the film last month, just for the experience.
And today, the next step: I have an audition for a paid gig to be in a commercial! Wish me luck, everyone!
