Audio Blog Update

I had the perfect environment for reading one of my columns. It was the one entitled "The Rain Moves In" and talked about living in a house with a tin roof when I was a child. I took the column to the screened-in porch this morning along with my mp3 recorder and read the column. The rain was pattering on the roof and the wind gently tinkling the wind chimes but I kept stumbling over words. So I tried re-recording the entire column but I kept messing up. What I finally did was re-record the parts I messed up. That's fine and dandy, but at some point, all the pieces have to come together.
I've learned that this audio interviewing is not as easy as it sounds. Once you get the stuff recorded, then you have to go in and edit the segments and put them all together.
This is all very good information because now I know that I need to make notations on the script where the splices should be so that I don't have to waste time trying to find pieces that fit.
Every day is a school day. I hope you all have a great week.
