Converting a script

I haven’t been blogging much as I have a script to write for a recording. The essential thing is to get the timing right. I have been given three pages of text but I need to turn that into an interview so that the listeners do not have to listen to a monologue.

Then I have to time it and leave spaces for one or two songs and a few poems. This is the fourth magazine I have produced for the Voice of Progress, a newsletter for the blind and it gets harder each time.

This  is probably the most fulfilling thing I do in my retirement. Writing is fine but readers can get the same pleasure from many other sources. There aren’t as many avenues of entertainment for the less able. I hope they like it when it’s finished.
