Well. I've got excellent news. My family and friends are sensational and I got a good amount of help with all of this transcription business. Special thanks to my beautiful sister Crys, my genius brother David, and my dear friends, in the truest sense of the word, Seth, Vicki, Juan, Natalie, and Pickett. Seth already sent me his section and it is amazing how much easier this is going to make my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I hope to have my first rough cut done by March 12. Yes, this is fairly industrious, but I am running out of time (another reminder: this thing is due on April 28. I'm trying not to freak out).
On a personal note (Since I'm a fan of alliteration, let's call this a Producer's Personal Paragraph.), I feel like I am learning so much about myself and about my family throughout this process. And, if you don't mind me going macro with this, I'm learning so much about marriage and the human condition. As I've been sifting through my siblings' thoughts and observations (and reading everything on marriage and divorce that I can get my greedy hands on [currently polishing off Committed which I highly recommend]), I am seeing so many patterns. I am learning all the ways divorce can be avoided... all the things that were glaring signs of issues that went unattended. You know the saying, "Know thine enemy?" Divorce is most certainly my enemy and I am really starting to get well acquainted.
I finished going through Derek's interview. Here's a bit from it about his hope for my project. And yes. We'll just have to see.
