Almost free but not quite

When I said no new commitment for a while, I'd forgotten that I had at least one more to polish off before I'm really free. I'm doing costuming for a production of Chicago done at Dana Hall, a girl's prep high school in Wellesley, and it goes into tech week next week. It's a nice gig, and I can use the extra money, but it means I have deadlines and places to be for one week more. I did a bunch of alterations in the last few days, and made a ton of fringed skirts today. I've also got a couple of modeling engagements coming up, which are nice because they pay a very decent hourly rate, but are more time sinks. I'm working hard to fit everything in around each other.

What I really want to do is work on my new screenplay idea. Maybe it's the enthusiasm of productive procrastination, of which I am a master, or maybe it's because the ideas are flowing for it so easily and so well, but I feel so jazzed about it. Even better, I told Bernie my ideas last night, and he had such great responses and gave me so many exciting suggestions. I'm so lucky that I have someone like him who is always interested in my work and capable of making such helpful contributions. He has a great skill for the structuring of plot, so he's always able to fill out where mine are lacking. I think this really could be an amazing story. Here's hoping my enthusiasm holds into the next week, when I'll actually have time to write it all out.

My name is Phoebe. I'm Boston area theater professional and English professor focused in writing, acting, directing, and modeling. I'm known for having lots of interests, lots of opinions about those interests, and a very high estimation of the value thereof.
