Shapoopi Progress

It's been a Shapoopi Weeekend!

This Week:
      *Reading: been spending time earlier in the week on The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Agatha Christie)Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Douglas Adams).
      *Editing: I finished my read through and edit of The Real Road Trip. Wahoo!!!
      *Blogging: I managed a new blog post, posted earlier today. Working on getting on a regular blog schedule set up. I feel this will get easier.
      *Social Media: I have at least managed to keep up with my sponsor duties. Not much else this weekend.

It's been a long weekend of auditions and discussions. We had a really nice turn out with so much local talent, and now we have a cast. It feels so good! I have missed this, doing theatre and being part of a show. There something organic about theatre. You start with a story and add actors and a good director and BAM, you have a living breathing show. Of course there is much more that encompasses a show, like costumes, music, sets, and such. After all the rehearsing you have a living essence, something alive.

Theatre makes me feel alive!

Is there something that makes you feel alive, Dear Readers?

This (upcoming) Week:
       *Reading: continue with The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Murder Comes Ashore (Julie Anne Lindsey), Invisible Moon (James A. Owen), Fragile Things (Neil Gaiman), and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
       *Writing: write daily, at 300 words.
       *Editing: begin inputting edits and re-write of The Real Road Trip.
       *Blogging: 1 new non-ROW80 blog. Making my days I blog Tuesdays.
       *Social Media: 4 blogs daily and sponsor duties. Spend more time on twitter.
       *Submissions: 2 new submissions this week.

After this week I can return to a normal schedule. I will have to adjust to the the rehearsal schedule, but I am convinced that is workable and it's what I do.

A Round of Words in 80 Days is a blog challenge that knows you have a life. Come and see what the other ROW80-ers at the Blog Hop.

  1. So glad that you have theater to get you fired up and feel alive. Me? I don't know that there is any one thing that makes me feel alive. My dog, my backyard, making travel plans, and here in northern Wisconsin where the weather stinks, I would have to add that any sunny warm day when I can get outside.

    Have a great week and good luck with the production.

    1. These things that you listed are what makes you alive, revel in them, enjoy them, and remember to find the joy in these things. That and the writing, I gather. I wish you fantastic weather, summer is rightly hanging on. Seems September is now the new August in Upstate NY. :-)

  2. This sounds great! I find that doing something different creatively (in my case, drumming or dance, in yours, theater) inspires my writing in new ways when I return to it. I wish you fun and inspiration!
