It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, evvveryyy whereee you gooooo…
I love Christmas unabashedly. I know all the verses to all the songs (benefits of growing up in 4 different singing groups LOL), I love the peace of snowy winter (ahem, Montana? get on that, please?), I love listening to Christmas music and have an extensive playlist of stuff that *doesn’t* sound like anything that comes through mall speakers, I love decorating the tree, I love wrapping presents and filling stockings…the kids are in their 20s, and I still do it 🙂
Right now, I’m finishing a book and cannot stress my voice (that med that gave me a month of laryngitis is still being felt, but my voice is getting stronger all the time!), so I am grumpily listening to music ALL THE TIME lol
The book underway is a 2-narrative-voice book and I really enjoy doing that kind of work. This book doesn’t ask for a ton of definitive voicing in dialog (don’t ask me how I come to these determinations…it’s instinct at this point), but creating 2 distinctive narrative voices/cadences/timbres/etc. is very satisfying to me.
And as soon as the book is done, I shall sing ALL THE SONGS!!!
(don’t get me wrong – I’m thoroughly enjoying narrating this book! I’m grumpy about medication-induced vocal weakness. honest to pete, my body could stop reacting to every thing any day now :P)
