SHOUT-OUT SUCCESSES SEPTEMBER #SSS

I'm part of an actors group on Facebook that is having Shout-Out Successes September to "It's bragging rights central! Let's spread the word of the good things that have been happening to us as actors. It could be a shout out about your first official audition, first acting class, feedback or comment from a casting director or coach, connections that you never thought you'd get, gigs you've booked, worked or been offered… anything that has made you proud or reconfirmed why you still call yourself an actor."

In addition, I'm also part of a monthly actors accountability group and this is also the kind of things we do during out monthly meetings…shouting out our good news and accomplishments while also setting goals for the next month.

I don't see one success for an actor that has been working in the business for a decade.

Let's just all sit back and laugh at this comment & thank you for inspiring me to keep moving forward.

That's the most moronic thing I've read. You need a random person on the net to inspire you to keep attempting to do what you want to do.

I still don't see anything on that list that could be considered a "success".

maybe you don't, but you're not the boss of me. I'm happy and that's all that matters. Unsupportive comments just inspire me because i LOVE being told that I can't do something and it just fuels me to try harder, so for that, thank you.
