Transcribing and editing an interview on Christmas day and feeling like you’ve gotten the best gift in months!
It’s been so long since I did an interview. I mean a real, meaningful, spontaneous conversation. This one wasn’t face to face, for practical reasons – there are thousands and thousands of miles between me and the artist I talked to. We did it over the phone, but it felt like we were in the same room.
It made me very happy, but then I had to put the recording away and return to my current professional obligations. Which make me happy, too, but for different reasons: they pay my bills and give me the chance to be part of a great team.
Today, I finally had time to play back the interview and I started to transcribe it. It’s tedious work, as some of you may know. But I haven’t felt so good in months. To sit at my coffee table, in front of my laptop, pressing the „Play” and „Pause” buttons on the recorder, while listening to one of the most talented and creative people in the world!
A great interview is one that doesn’t have an expiration date and still stands in 100 years, and I know this one will. You may want to read it while we’re all still here, though. 🙂 It’s going to be on the website soon!Semnat de Corina Stoica
