How To Stay Motivated As An Expat Thespian

Being an actor is a roller-coaster of emotions.  Your successes come and go, support from friends and family can be fleeting, and money is always an issue. However, I've found a couple of things that keep me motivated ---tactics of encouragement if you will.   Today's post is

How To Stay Motivated As An Expat Thespian

Always Be Reading - Nothing beats a good book.  Whether that book is about acting, show business, or penguins.  Reading is a fundamental part of the actor's career.  So read a book and find something within it that will spark new creativity.  The type of book isn't what's important. What's important is that being a creative artist can come from anything and reading is just a great avenue. 

Watch Alternate Genres -  I don't like horror films, I think they're funny and end up laughing.  However, every so often I will watch one just to see how things were done and to find a way that the casting director could have used someone of my type.  Shows that aren't necessarily on your go-to list are a great way to shake things up. Did someone recommend a movie or show to you lately?  Then check it out and see where you fit in. 

We are artist because we love stories and we love stories because we enjoy seeing ourselves in them.  So find your inspiration in some literary treasure and watch something new to find new cast-ability.  Stay motivated Expat Thespian!!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for
quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
some experience with something like this. Please let
me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
I look forward to your new updates.

Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would
really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design.
With thanks
