Now that the show's done

My life was so eaten up by putting on the show up until this weekend, but now that we're finished I have some free time again. I am incredibly tired, but I am also energized with our success, and want to carry on the momentum.

This was one of the most difficult things I've ever done in my life, level-of-effort-wise. I've rarely been responsible for so much. I've certainly never had a tech week like this one before, where a small crew had to put together a set outside, in twenty-degree weather, at times with the rain and snow actively falling down. They talk about the idea of not having enough hours in the day, but we were so busy that it literally felt like even pausing for meals was a waste of time. But we not only finished, we finished BEAUTIFULLY. Our end product-- the show, and every element within it, from the costumes to the sets to the acting --was beautiful. I'm really pleased and proud, and next time somebody suggests I can't do something, I'll remember that I was able to do this.

The question is, of course, what now? A brief period of rest, of course. But our success means there should be an opportunity to build. I need to contemplate next steps for the continued advancement of Mrs. Hawking, and quick so as not to lose momentum or waste time.

I've also got other projects to think of. There's making sure Brockhurst is ready to run at Intercon, but what of writing? Maybe I should dive into Base Instruments, the third in the Mrs. Hawking series, which I want to be finished by the end of this year? I've been raring to go on Adonis sequels as well. But I'm not sure what's the best move at this point.

Suggestions on all of this are of course welcome! I'd really like to figure out my path before long, so I can get to marching.
