I was very grateful (especially with everything going on) to look back and see I narrated 10 books last year. This nearly doubled my entire portfolio and was by far and away the most books I have recorded (so far) in one year.
We took a road trip up California 395 to South Lake Tahoe, where hiking, sledding, puzzles, and crackling fires ensued. We even saw a bear close by on a trail! Thanksgiving was, like for most of us, at home and quiet, but we made a full feast with chicken and all the fixins!
Another busy month! Lots of narrating (juggling four different projects), learned quite a bit at Johnny Heller’s virtual workshop!, quick weekend road trip to see family (outside and from a distance), and phone banking weekly to battleground states ahead of the November election! Talked to lots of great people in spots like TX, CO, OH, FL, and NV!
This past month has been mostly filled with narrating, which is great! I recently joked with another narrator that not only do you learn the craft, you then have to learn how to *do* the work every day. Time management and endurance are key!
And here we are in September already! In addition to everything else, I’ve continued to work with Shannon Parks on fiction narration, and I also produced an online Shakespeare workshop with veteran and rookie actors! No moss growing over here.
A day of celebration and dedication to the heroes and survivors of 9/11 is suddenly disrupted by a long-planned terrorist attack.
It’s been a very busy month; in addition to everything below, I learned how to juggle! It’s not a skill I thought I’d pick up anytime soon, but a friend put together a free 5-day course that made it attainable! I’ve certainly not mastered it (gotta work on toss consistency!), but I’m really thrilled with […]
How has your summer been so far? Not exactly what we were expecting this year, I know. For a break, I went on a short road trip for my first visit to Big Bear Lake, getting in some much-needed (socially-distanced) hiking! In fact, on one of the trails there was no one around for miles! […]
How are you holding up through everything? As if the shelter-in-place pandemic wasn’t enough, we now find ourselves in a long overdue tidal wave of social change. It’s pretty remarkable how quickly things mobilize and spread. We all have a long road ahead of us, and I plan to do what I can to educate […]
Does it feel like summer where you are? The HEAT has hit San Diego, and we’re grateful to be in Phase One of “reopening” the beaches and parks. Fingers crossed that we all do our part to keep things moving in the right direction…and so far, so good! For the Hippies book that I mention […]
