Lately, I'm not sleeping particularly regular. Teaching new courses will do that to me. Nerves and all. And so it went that I woke up around four thirty this morning. I tried going back to sleep, but it wasn't happening easy. A shame for this to happen on a Saturday.
So, I got up and eventually went to work on the upcoming Random Waves episode. I have somewhere around 65 minutes on interview to transcribe, and I started this morning. I took many breaks for many purposes, and I ended up by late afternoon typing about the first five minutes. That's right. Five minutes.
I hate transcription.
But I know I have to do it. Even if I have a story already in my head, the act of transcription brings back all the quotes that I've forgotten, and I start rewriting in my head as I type it all out. It's useful as anything. I just don't enjoy it as much as the other parts of production.
So, maybe I'll see you all mid-2017 when I get all 65 minutes typed. :)
