Chasing the Dream...Day 770 (A Lil Break from the Passion to Explore my Curiosity)

How's everybody doing? Great, I hope!

I have some pretty cool articles coming up very soon so stay tuned for those. As you guys know, I love to interview some of Detroit's amazing talent and I have a couple new articles coming up for you guys featuring more of the city's treasures.

I recently finished the short version of my one-woman show and I actually plan on submitting it to a festival tonight. Cross your fingers for me! I am going to submit it to a couple of places this spring summer. I hope someone picks it up! It's basically my life, so far, with a bit of over exaggeration. It's kind of how I see my life after a few glasses of red wine. LOL...Shout out to one of my best friends, Louis Lyons, for playing the role of muse and helping me develop a couple of scenes for the show. He's so creative and dimented like me and I couldn't have finished it without him.

I plan on extending the play because I have so much to say and share-I will in the future. Hopefully, entering the piece into these festivals will be the first step to the show evolving and growing into its potential.

The name of the show is "Growing Up White: Great White Way Dreams, 7 Mile Reality." (pun intended...get it? Sam White? Anyway...)

Everyone cross your toes, fingers, eye balls and anything else you can cross for me! Thanks!

I am hoping for some sort of break soon to re-engergize myself. I have done four plays in the last year, dozens of comedy shows and wrote a ton of articles for several publications. Now, please don't get me wrong I will write until the day my fingers stop working, but I need a break. I need to get away so that I can come back a better actor, comedian and, most of all, writer.

It's very important for me to be a good (hopefully great one day) writer and I am beginning to understand the need to actually live and experience life so that I have more to offer as an artist/writer.

The ideal would be to get away to Los Angeles for 3 to 6 months, even a year, and be by the ocean. I want to breathe some fresh air, listen to the waves and just get away from everything I know at home to reflect and relax. I am certain I would come back home with ideas and inspiration.

I've been through the disappointment of coming home and having to wait 2 1/2 years to find sustainable employment and get my own place. I've been floating around since I got home from Vegas. And, I've had my heartbroken since my return. I'm spent. It's time to breathe! No worries, I will blog and document no matter where I go.

I am thinking LA also so that I can just get a feel for the comedy clubs out there and maybe even do some freelance work on the West Coast. Life is so unpredictable, we'll see where I end up and what happens. I am open to whatever God has in store for me.

Anyway, you guys have an amazing rest of your week and thanks for reading.

P.s. If you are wondering what I am curious to do outside of my passions...Don't laugh! I want to learn how to surf! I think that would be so awesome and fun.

xoxo
Sam
