Focus Please

I was reading Jeff's blog and his entry on focus. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time now. Basically, I can't get anything done because I've got too many things I want to do. So, I've made some decisions. They are...

  • I am going to give up on the idea of acting right now. It's painfully obvious that there won't be any opportunities arising at the theatre I work for so I think I'll lay down the thespian dreams for a while.
  • I am going to continue to blog. I enjoy it and it's a good outlet for my thoughts, frustrations, etc.
  • I am going to continue to make art. Even when I'm not making art, I am aching to do it. So, just gotta get disciplined enough to start and keep at it.
  • I am going to try to write more. I have several ideas for novels but I think I will start by outlining and writing a short story/novella that I've been kicking around.
  • It's in the works for me to continue my drum lessons. This one is iffy but it's something I want to keep. I love the drums and I want to be better at it...if only for my own enjoyment.

It doesn't appear that I'm giving up a whole lot but that first one is a biggie. I'm just going to lay it down and not worry about it anymore. The worrying is killing me. So, this is a start. I'm going to start on that outline right now.
Wish me luck.
