The Princess
The theater. It's an art I've always wanted to be a part of. As a kid, doing kid pagents, I was pretty good at it. But later.... when high school politics were flaring, and adolescence was kicking my patootie, I shied away. Feared rejection. I didn't try out for anything. I stayed in the back. But I watched, longed, wished I had the nerve.... and perhaps the talent.... to be a part of it. I took classes in high school and college. I did very well in high school, had a very poor relationship with my professor in college. And that was it. Theatric ambitions abandoned

Regrets, I've had a few.... dozen. The days I flirted with that muse are decades gone. Today.... with anxiety, time, and lack of training well. The world of theater.... It's all beyond my ken. It's a regret that I never followed that avenue. But you can't redo your past.

You can draw a comic and have the main character be more bold, though. 

Sorry for the subpar art of late. Gonna step it up!

A peek into Sarah's future, perhaps? I could easily see her as a performer as an adult--she has an air of the theatrical about her. As does Irma, for that matter.


I know what you mean about regrets. I tried to pursue a career as an actor when I lived in Colorado. I attended an acting workshop, appeared in a local commercial in Colorado Springs, and even went so far as to get head shots made. But...all that dried up when I moved to another state. This town just doesn't have the same resources for would-be actors. It's probably just as well--I'm disabled, and it's notoriously hard for disabled actors to get work.

I could totally see Sarah, Irma, Jules, and some others becoming a traveling troupe.

As long as you're still breathing, it's never too late.

There's actors that achieved great success despite starting their careers after 40, some with far less training than you have.

Give it a go... find a community theater group for starters, if you're unsure. It should help with a lot of your issues, just getting into it.

If it never goes past there, at least you'll enjoy yourself. If it does(hey, you could audition for something bigger and surprise yourself), you'll be glad you started it.

There's no reason to regret not doing something you can still do. Give it a go--you've obviously got the ability to tell an intriguing story. There's no reason your medium should be limited to webcomics if you don't want it to be.
