Method Notes: How Much do You Edit?

Posted by steve on September 29, 2004

I got the following question from a reader:

I’m curious to know how much or little editing you do. How close is what you have transcribed to what you recorded yourself saying? Your web posts seem very polished and I wondered if it just comes out that way on the tape.

Reply:

The amount of editing I do is very little really.

I make proper sentences where the voice trails off, say who said something where a dialogue occurs, and sometimes, when I have got an impression of

something but not said it on the tape I add it.

Occasionally I change the order slightly to make it more logical.
