Reinvent, rejuvenate, reorganize... these are the words I tend to think of when summer rolls around. For most in the industry, May/June provides a bit of a lull... and for many of us, it couldn't come at a better time. Not only is the warmer weather a good excuse to relax, but after a stressful pilot season (either from too many auditions, or not nearly enough) some time "off" can be a welcome relief.
Personally, I was burnt out for a few reasons. Bookings that didn't work out for reasons beyond anyone's control, too much work from all sides, and not enough forward momentum to name a few. Top it off with the unexpected passing of my very beloved dog, William, and I was a girl very much in need of a break.
So, I took a few.
