I don’t know why, but this little thing is causing me all sorts of psychological trouble, a wrenching feeling in my gut… It’s pushed me away from the computer (the work space) in the middle of the day, and I’m laying in bed with the cat, feeling bad. I know, intellectually, that this feeling, this reaction, is incorrect, is irrational. Either way I decide to go on this tiny question, it barely matters. But I still feel very strongly about it and am having to fight with myself over it.
So, here it is: I’m working on changing the “outro” for the podiobook version of Dragons’ Truth, and struggling with whether or not to include a music credit, and if so, then how it should be put. I did everything. I wrote the book, I recorded the audio, all the voices, I composed the music, I’ll even be burning the discs for people who buy it. I did everything. It feels weird/wrong to list it all out. If I’d used someone else’s music, sure, credit them. Have to. In fact, NOT having to put in a music credit was probably 1/3 of why I decided to compose my own music… No one to press charges when I don’t mention the music is theirs. So now, being told by trusted voices in podcasting/podiobooks that I ought to have a music credit, even though it’s mine is… Weird. It feels wrong. It conflicts with my intentions.
I don’t know. Maybe I’ll take a nap.
