The Fabulous Adventures of Astera: Writer/Actress for Hire

Meet Astera (aka: me), a star in her own mind. Our plucky little heroine has embarked on not one but two difficult, low-paying career paths: writing and acting. Witness the menial jobs! The unreasonable demands! The quirky friends and family! And the glimmer of success just ahead! Through it all, Astera maintains her core beliefs: 1) She is destined to be fabulous 2) Everything is more fun with a cocktail.

Thanksgiving Thoughts

My life is like a roller coaster...soaring highs and swooping lows. Right now, I feel like I'm on a descent. But things are picking up steam, and I think I'll be cranking up to another peak again soon. Besides, without the lows, the highs wouldn't seem very high, would they? Here are just a few of the things I'm thankful for:

1. I'm spending Thanksgiving Day with loved ones.
2. I have a good marriage.
3. I have caring friends and a wonderful family.
4. I just earned my yellow belt in martial arts, which gives me a sense of accomplishment.
5. I'm healthier and stronger than I have been in the past.
6. I have two job interviews and a freelance project lined up for next week.
7. I don't own a home, so I don't have to worry about foreclosure. And my rent is a fraction of what a mortgage would be.
8. When times are tough, I have a strong support network.
9. I haven't gotten a rejection letter from the literary agent yet.
10. I have an appreciation for both the ridiculous and the sublime.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
