My focus is still on accent work, so I ran my practice sentences and read out loud in GenAm both days.
I even managed to do my ballet workout both days. I am using muscles I never knew I even had. Painful fun.
I can't seem to bring myself to get stuck into the cold reading exercises. I have sides printed out, I have a big bathroom mirror, I have the ability to read. So, why am I not excited to give it a try? It feels like I'm too scared to. I guess, I'm feeling rusty, very rusty. There is that (irrational) fear lurking in the back of my mind that I might have lost 'it', you know, everything that I've learned and worked for over the past couple of years. Better get over it soon. I want to be performance ready when the drought breaks!
I've also started working on some really cool things for the New Zealand Actor's Guild, being on the board and all. Stay tuned for more info over the next few weeks!
