Hello! I'm a middle-aged man, having raised a happy family and finished a successful but dull career in broadcast television. I worked long and hard for the benefit of my family out of love and duty, until after many years, I could bear it no longer...
I am now pursuing a more artistic path in acting, which has been like drinking water after a lifetime of drought: it's been a revelation and to everyone's surprise, it's going quite well!
What I need help with though, is this: I am also a writer/musician/performer and long to write and record my music (although 'long' is not a strong enough verb). I have also recently been diagnosed with ADD, Attention Deficit Disorder, which explains a lot: every day I fritter away the time and achieve next to nothing. This has been the case for the whole of my life, although if I am given a specific task, I am actually a really hard worker. I'm not lazy, I'm just unfocussed and bewildered! (I spent school and uni in a dream, not listening to a word...)
I long to find that rarely visited, elusive, creative space and dwell in it. I'm convinced that there is gold in there - but if I don't dig and mine and purify and construct and polish and admire... I will one day be a very disappointed man indeed... can you help organise this hapless but talented chap? :)
