Auditions, acting and anxiety

on May 5, 2014

Well, the latter part of that title is me of course. In the last week or so Ming has been an extra in a couple of scenes in a yet-to-be-made movie and next week he’s auditioning for a ‘real’ role.

Oh dear, I got the last bit of the above wrong – Ming is auditioning for the ‘real’ role and he just told me he needs to recite a monologue.

“Can’t you just write me one, Mum?”

That question was amusing a couple of hours ago.

    Julie, Smiling no pressure at all huh! I am glad he asked you LOL. I would be filled with anxiety as well, hell it’s hard enough to write about things I know. LOL LOL This response has been zero help to you I know, I just wanted to tell you I felt your pain. Take care sweetie. Bill

  17. Woo how exciting I hope all goes great for Ming

  18. Love it… well he knows you write…so of course you can write him a monologue.. ha! Diane

  19. Must he have an original? I mean, there are books just filled with monologues and sililiquies (sp?) Just in case he didn’t realize. I know that sometimes a known bit is preferable. Personally, I think you could write something marvelous!

  20. Oh, and good luck to both of you!
