Spring Cleaning

Posted in Update at 11:16 AM by Administrator

So to avoid doing any actual spring cleaning around the house, I decided to work on my website, including tying up the loose end of not having this blog attached to it.  Now that I have remedied this, it seems I am now obligated to periodically make appearances and actually post my thoughts or updates on my writings.

Currently I’m in the planning stages of jumping into novel number 3 which is a continuation of the Griggs family escapades.  I do have a working title “The Noise of Summer” and those of you who know my works probably can guess that Matt Griggs music career will figure prominently.

I’ve been spending more of my free time trying to figure out how to archive some of my old music digitally, and I must say that it’s pretty frustrating.  I’ve got at least a dozen or so DAT tapes of subpar demo performances which I can’t seem to get to work in the old player.  I’m not certain if it’s the machine or the tapes which have not been used in 16 years which is the culprit.  I did manage a couple of songs which I might put onto the music page of my site.

I also have an idea to take some of my original ADAT recordings and get them onto the computer to remix, but for now I’m not pleased with the transfer process so it may be awhile before I can produce any results.  Ugh.

Anyhow, that’s where I stand in this time frame of Spring Cleaning.  Looking forward to a nice warm summer with hopefully renewed energy to push these projects onward!
