Do. Not. Tell. Everyone. That I Am. 82. And. Female.


Probably the best example for your last paragraph is Iago, who I think of as being a constant performer, and a narrator of more-than-questionable honesty. That's one of the reasons why I love that character, and why it's so incredibly rich for an actor. I don't think there's any way to REALLY know what his motivations are because they change at the drop of a handkerchief.

(See what I did there?)

From reading your blog, I would assume that you have the personality of someone who loves your hair. Alas, I don't believe there has been a loving hair post at all this year. My heart breaks, and my perception of you is beginning to shift. To what--only time will tell.


Do not tell everyone I am an 82 year old woman.

I am an 82-year-old drag queen who makes a living impersonating Freeman.


S/he makes more money impersonating me than I do being me.


I love to see and love to write characters that aren't totally honest. Duplicity is interesting, and as I see it, more true-to-life. I really have little interest in characters who always mean exactly what they say, and wear their heart on their sleeve. It's so much more exciting to see a character who is obviously hiding something, telling only part of the truth, or maybe none of the truth, in order to gain power and advantage over someone else.
