From mind to paper..

Currently listening to the score of “The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship of the Ring”.

Awesome Score. I am impressed by Mr. Shore’s talent.

But the question that popped into my head as I listen in awe is “How?”

I admit I am envious of the music and words that come out of know artists minds and wonder if what they saw/heard in their heads matches the result of their hard work? I know for me I feel I end up short a few bars.

I have a hard time having my pen go quick enough to match the dialogue and images that flit through my head. I feel at times that my grasp of the written word is so limited that my characters and scenery do not come out as well as I would like.

Maybe that is why we edit and have revisions?
