Yesterday, my husband had me bring the kids to the studio, and while they played in a different room, I had the opportunity to watch extra vocal tracks being laid for a song the studio's been working on. This isn't the first time I've been able to watch, but it was the first time I got to watch and hear at the same time. It really was interesting!
Then I listened as the tracks were mixed. Now this is something I've heard before. Matter of fact, it's something I got bored listening to before. My husband hears thing I can't hear, so while he listening to a track over and over and over again, making minute changes each time, he's hearing different things each time he listens. Me? I just hear the same thing each and every time. For the most part. But last night, I actually heard a lot of the changes he was making.
That was my weekend education. *g* And it lasted until pretty late last night.
On the writing front, I'm still reading First Draft in 30 Days, and started getting BMO separated into scenes so that I can start using Karen Wiesner's method to outline that story. Maybe it'll get me jump started, or at the very least, show me where I took the wrong turn. And since I committed to 20 hours of manuscript work for this week's BIAW, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to get this sucker figured out.
Oooh! I did have an idea late last night for the portion where I was stalled. Need to jot that down before I forget.
Anyway, off to have breakfast then get to work!
