So, grantwriting really makes me unhappy. I am confident that I can take #DERMALIAN to another level with a diverse cast, but it’s rehearsal vs. the show for me and I know I won’t love the movie as much as I love my Storyboard. It’s like gardening. You work your ass off, pull weeds, worry, fret and fight with mosquitoes. Then one day, it’s fantastic for a minute and then everything is picked and gone. I have always gotten more gratification from rehearsal than I did from live performance.

But if I get the cash I need, I will make the movie, be proud of it and let it have its own life. That’s my job. And fortunately, I won’t be grantwriting for a while because I’ve applied to everything I’m eligible for at this time.
