I had two interviews today, which brought the number of interviews that needed to be transcribed today to a daunting number of four.
Anyone who has ever had to transcribe anything knows this is a terrible, terrible task.
I plowed through the first three, but by the time I reached the third, I was fading fast.
By the mid afternoon, our office gets about as hot as the ninth level of hell times a thousand.
I kid you not when I say it’s hot enough to melt your brain – we always have glazed looks in our eye by the end of these hot, hot, hot summer days.
I knew I needed to still get that last interview done, so I did what any good editrix would do: I brought my recorder to my seriously pleasant 71-degree home, kicked off the heels, put on shorts and a tank top and started typing away to the streaming tune of my favorite classic-rock station, Long Island’s 102.3 WBAB.
Plus, I was basking in the afternoon sunlight streaming into my home office and happily gazing out at the sun-dappled leaves moving ever so slightly in the breeze.
It didn’t take very long for my brain to stop being so mushy and soon the transcribing was done, I started blogging this blog and now, it’s time for some dinner and a walk after that.
