I got cast. I’m playing Verges in Much Ado About Nothing and Angelo in A Comedy of Errors. Verges is a moron and Angelo is a goldsmith, two good comedic parts.
In my day job I’ve taken on more work. More work and acting are a huge time commitment. I’ve decided to shut down this blog. It was not an easy decision; I had some good posts planned. For the next week or so I will have to force myself to stay away from this blog, otherwise I’ll fall back into the habit and make a liar of myself.
I’ve learned a lot since I began blogging on November 19, 2005. I didn’t realize when I began that I would learn this much by forcing myself to organize my thoughts and write. I thank Blogger for letting me do this for free.
The only problem with blogging is that I found it was taking over my creative life. Every day I felt pressure to “feed the monster” as Vodkapundit puts it. My subconscious was looking for things to blog. Ayn Rand noted in one of her books on writing that her subconscious shut down when she had an appointment that day. A blog is a neverending appointment. I was not getting any playwriting done.
I want to thank everyone who took a few minutes to read Myrhaf every day. I’m sorry for those of you who put me on your blogroll and now you have to take me off. I’ll still be reading your blogs.
This will sound corny but I want to thank anyone reading this who is now or has been in the military service. The men and women in the armed forces are fighting for my freedom to do the things I do, such as act. Our enemy, militant Islam, is a hideous ideology that hates everything good in this world and worships death. It must be destroyed. If our politicians had one tenth of the integrity and rationality of the men and women in the military, then I would feel more secure about our future.
