I got a bit of transcribing done this afternoon. As boring and thoroughly tedious as the process can be, it does have some advantages. For instance, since transcription requires less intense concentration than either reading or writing, I can usually listen to music while mindlessly copying text from the page in front of me to the digital warehouse of my hard drive. Thus, although I did spend some quality time with J. M. Coetzee, I also enjoyed the company of, among others, T.S.O.L., 7 Seconds, and the Minutemen.
For tomorrow: Read or transcribe.
