Jumpy Encounters


The other day, I was at WILL to do some fine editing work. No one was in Mr. Dickey's office, but it was open, so I went inside and got started. Of course, fine editing involves wearing headphones in order to listen to the tracks and make appropriate changes. As I got into volume editing, I turned up the volume on the headphones so I could concentrate. I had just finished one block when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. I nearly jumped out of my seat, quickly turned to my right, and looked over my shoulder, only to see Gloria sitting their waiting for me to finish up. I was so surprised to see her there, because I hadn't actually *heard* her walk in! Let's just say that it's easy to get caught up in editing work, especially thanks to those high-quality headphones. In any case, editing work has been going pretty well for me. I did all of my cutting (as in, getting rid of um's, ah's, etc.) in a two-and-a-half hour block of time, because I prefer getting it all done at once. I've only just gotten started on volume editing, but I think I'll only need one more session at WILL to finish up. Now to revise the script....
