Step up, step up and see the Amazing Shrinking Actor. Can he make himself half the size and twice the man? Only time will tell.

Great news! The audition went very well and I have been called back. This is a theater company I really want to work for, so this is a big deal for me. I feel like the positive result today is a product not only of the physical work I have been doing, which makes me much more marketable, but as a result of my improved personal habits. I am preparing for things the way I should. I am still far from where I need to be to achieve the kind of success I want. I constantly fight the impulse to sit back, to do it later, to let someone else control what happens to me. "Proactive" has become my new catch phrase and goal. I have already had more auditions in the last 4 months than in my first 2 years in Chicago. There aren't more theater companies, I am just doing the legwork. It is discouraging to think what I could have done if I had been smarter sooner, but I refuse to lose any more time.
