Audio Work is Hard!

Today I’m recording the narration for two short stories (one very short, one regular-short). That is probably going to take me all freakin’ day.

I really enjoy doing it, don’t get me wrong, but it is a tonne of work to get right. Between balancing levels and cutting and pasting audio into the right places and then, after all that, putting in sound effects and music… yeah, it’s a tonne of work.

But! But. It’s work for which I’ve been paid a small amount for, and honestly I’m happy to do it. I don’t think I’ll ever make a living out of it (unlike writing!), but it is a neat little thing to do. Another artistic pursuit in a life too full of them, I suppose.

Anyway, I’m on Chapter 17 on the Tintian edits, so that’s still moving along nicely, and I’ve finally paid for my trip to Japan in its entirety, so that’s a weight off my… bank account. 70 days until I go! I can’t wait!
