They say when it rains, it pours, and that is certainly how the past week felt to me. I’m intensely focused on my book, feeling the pressure of a tight deadline, because the launch date is November 15th — just two months away — so I want to pour as much of my time and energy into it as possible.
But life doesn’t stop or slow down for us, of course. And last week I had a two-day trip to San Diego on Sunday and Monday, and when I got home I had no fewer than four shows with my improv group, All That Jazz, because we had been accepted into the San Francisco Fringe Festival. Yay!
And oh, no! Four shows, four drives up to San Francisco in rush hour traffic, meant something like twenty hours out of my week!
But I still managed to get almost nine and a half hours of work done on my book. Considering that my goal is at least two hours per day, and I was gone for two days, that’s not too bad.
And, having four improv shows in one week was quite a learning experience. So I thought I’d share with you some of the lessons learned from leaping without a net four times in a one week.
1. Quantity = improvement.
2. I am an unreliable judge of my own performance.
3. If you do something scary often enough, it becomes the new normal.
