I now have a casting tomorrow for an important project, important director, important casting director etc etc. A job that will pay me well and sustain me in work for a good few months.
And what am I doing? Procrastinating. There are literally hundreds of things I would rather do than learn my lines and work on the script. Don't get me wrong, I will. But what is up with that? When there is nothing on the horizon, and I mean nothing - when you are desolate of castings, phone calls, meetings, anything, you'd give your right arm for a call. But when you have a meeting, a job or things in the pipeline, all you want to do is... everything else.
