#SOBLESSED UPDATE: First Draft Completed

soblessedpromo1 1

Hey Awaresies!

It has come to my attention that many of my new followers have no clue I am writing a book. For those who are new, here’s a recap:

“In the style of my SMASH Don’t Give a Shit blogs, #SOBLESSED: the Annoying Actor Friend’s Guide to Werking in Show Business is a satirical ‘how-to’ book that explains everything from choosing the right college, pounding the pavement, and getting your Equity card to regional theatre, Broadway, national tours, and of course, behaving on social media – all in a quest to find what it means to be #SOBLESSED.”

As of today, September 14th, 2013, I officially have a completed first draft “manuscript.” Some refer to the first draft as the “throw-up draft.” This is when an author throws everything onto the page to see what sticks. My “throw-up draft” was definitely index finger induced and I will work tirelessly until October 8th to clean up and deliver to you a  streamlined product that lovingly walks the line between cohesive story telling and WTF-Was-He/She-Smoking?

I began writing #SOBLESSED in June and I would like to share with you a few things about my experience working on it thus far…

  • I now know more about the SETA contract than I ever wanted.
  • CollegeConfidential.com is a fucking scary place.
  • I lost an entire week of productivity to Orange is the New Black.
  • It is possible to make references to both Game of Thrones and My Best Friend’s Wedding in the same sentence when discussing national tours.
  • I’ve spent more time on Kickstarter.com than anyone ever should.
  • I felt personally disgusted in myself anytime I made a reference to a musical.
  • You can never have enough hashtags.
  • This business is fucked up.

 I hope at least five or six of you are as excited about this as I am!

Stay #blessed.
