I’m feeling pretty good about myself lately. I’ve been auditioning regularly, and been having a lot of fun recording my current project. The author is super sweet, and honest with her feedback. It’s been such a good time.
I recently got another project offer, so I’ll be working on a second project simultaneously. Which is fine, because recording on the first project is going so well and really much faster than I thought it would. But, then, it’s the editing and production that takes me forever still.
I recorded for about three hours today and I’m feeling it. I’ve been chugging back so much water to keep recording that I’m having to stop to pee after every chapter I record. LOL. But I love it so much, and I wish I’d made this leap to work from home many, many months ago.
I think I was due for a good day or several, because I’ve been stressing myself out a lot lately. It’s nice to enjoy what I do for work now. It’s probably the first time I’ve not hated my job in my entire life. I like being a content creator, I like making people’s words come to life with my voice, and I like making my own stories live as well. I still haven’t had time to figure out how or when I’m going to do my own audiobooks, but I’m really liking doing other people’s.
I’ve also been writing out the script for my demo reels for stuff other than audiobooks, so that’ll be coming soon. It’ll be a while, since I haven’t recorded them or even finished figuring out how I want to script them out. I’ll probably get someone else to produce it, but I definitely want to get it done soonish.
Other than that, life is proceeding well. I did not get the part time job I’d hoped I would get, which is fine. I have other options, but if I were honest with myself, I don’t want one. I need one, but I don’t want one. I will keep pushing along and I will make this career work for me.
