It’s funny how it feels. The nervousness. The doubt. The feeling of shame and fear and strange elation before it happens. That inaccurate, but almost truthful, idea of Impostor Syndrome. That idea that you’re not supposed to be there. It’s so strong. So, so strong.

And then, in an instant, it’s gone when you hear your cue line. Or when you hear, ‘ACTION!’.

Such a strange business, this Acting business. So very strange.

  1. I feel this with any writing gigs I get. Only I don’t have something like ‘ACTION’ to snap me into action. It’s just a low-key burning thought that I don’t belong, lol. Thanks for sharing this snappy piece. I like it.
