Finally switching gears

For the first time in a while now, I don't feel totally drained after the day I've had. It was my last day of work before my break without many students, and all the real work for costuming Urinetown is done. So though I still have to be at tech rehearsal, I can sit and relax and watch the show.

I've been thinking a lot about how I want to spend my two weeks of break. First of all, I want to get my eating and exercising back under control. Though I've been doing a fair bit of physical work for Mrs. Hawking, mostly hauling around sets and props, I haven't gotten more than one or two proper workouts a week for the last month, and I feel weak and gross. Nor have I been eating anything other than quick and easy junk I can grab between commitments. Want to fix all that, get lean and strong again. I also want to get settled on project work.

I want to get writing again, more than just scribbling here and there. The two things I really want to get going on are Base Instruments, the third installment of the Mrs. Hawking series, and the sequel to Adonis. Those I think are my most important properties, and so I want to see them continue as strong as they started. Both are very challenging to write, so it's all the more important that I devote real time to them while I have it.

I also want to work on writing pitches. By that I mean writing up what I would say to sell my work to people who might be in the capacity to produce it. I may have found an avenue for that in my professional networking, and I want to take advantage of any possible opportunity, but not before I'm fully prepared. I've never done that before, so I need to do a lot of research first to find out what a proper pitch should have. But I'm definitely at the stage where I think I need solid ones for my major properties. I really need to get things OUT THERE, and this might be the real best way.
