Welcome to this week’s Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You Carnival. If you want to join in, you can read the guidelines here. A flashback giveaway next week for linky participants!
I have always loved drama. As a young girl, I would spend hours crafting plays.
When I got into high school, I joined the drama team. It was pretty pathetic. Mainly because I was an untalented introvert with a love for the stage, not exactly a dynamic combo.
But I continued to try out for school plays. I landed an understudy role. (Which commits you to a lot of work, no glory and a sick dream of the true actress getting hurt, so you can take her place.)
I did land the role of a ghost with two lines when I was a sophomore. The director reminded me at every practice to ‘get into my character.’ I had difficulty with this.
You know, since I was alive.
My junior year, my church drama department took a chance on me for a huge part in their annual play.
I just new this would be my big break.
And although this a part I hope I never play again, it was a true moment of glory.
Because I was born to be a star.
Okay. Let’s hear it!
