Where I’ve Been ….
A while back, I talked about how after shooting “Revenge of the Green Dragons” that I stopped doing the regular “work” I normally did for money, and only did commercial background work as I pursued acting more. This was an experiment to see what else I can do, and if I could survive without the work I normally did and only pursue legit acting work. I finally finished my reel. I started coaching actor friends. I made a point to always hire a coach for every legit audition. I made a postcard that I sent out, started my website, and I got a new agent!

What is KCRRLives?
I’ve always used “KCRRLives” as the name of my updates for friends and family,… “K.C.R.R.” is an acronym for my alias, K.C. Randall Rick. “KCRRLives” is supposed to say, “yes, I’m still alive,.. and here’s what I’m up to.” For this blog, I might do a little journal writing, creative writing, maybe a Vlog, or a photo or illustration, whatever I want.

How to get yourself to do “____________.” In my case, “something with my creativity.”
When I was young, I wrote, drew, sang, danced, and created,… early childhood education, and feeling like an outsider encouraged creativity. In school I was in a “Prodigy” program, and there were always opportunities to write stories, or to create art. My creativity had no bounds.
