The Art of Editing
Last week, I finally finished editing my thesis document, and emailed it to my supervisors for their approval (or disapproval…) I’m sure it can still be improved upon, and I will accept their comments and suggestions with good will, but I am very very happy to have arrived at this stage – for the time being.
After a busy weekend that included making a professional showreel, attending two performances and running a full day workshop introducing a class of acting students to the joys of voice and speech work, I found myself with that lost feeling that I should BE somewhere… or BE DOING something… What was that thing I kept putting off till I’d finished with the thesis? Oh yes, sort out the website.
If you’ve made it this far – and if you’ve been here before – you’ll have noticed that it’s different. Not better, just different. I’ve now tried 4 different themes and only settled on the current bland grey outlook because it’s not as terrible as the others were. I’ve discovered that I’d rather edit a 70,000 word thesis than edit a WordPress Theme any day.
Soon, I’ll be able to twist my head back around to the front again, and feel my way towards creating something more dynamic and inviting. I am open to suggestions! What colours work for you? Do you prefer one column, or two? Is there a snazzy new font that keep you reading right to the bottom of the page? Let me know in the comments!
