Re: COMPLETE The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

Thank you, thank you, JoJo and Carolin :thumbs: About that ending, btw, JJ, which I'm really glad you liked: this little book, by this historically minor author, has a boggling assortment of gimmicks; if anyone's looking for a rousing discussion of auctorial style vs. Good Writing {vs. reader prefer...

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

And with the Epilogue, here concludeth: Section: 11 - Epilogue URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ck/goldenscarecrow_11_walpole.mp3 Length: 40:58 JoJo, just a few lines from the very end, there is what I decided must be a typesetting error ["wore" for "were"], dutifully scanned, but if yo...

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

Good to hear, JoJo, thanks, again. And the Epilogue has been recorded, at last; it may take me a couple of days to edit, but if you think Section 10 sounded enough alike the rest of them, at least I won't be making myself re-record either of the closing two sections. Funny thing, for which I have no...

Ten down, one to go: Section: 10 - IX. Young John Scarlet URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ck/goldenscarecrow_10_walpole.mp3 Length: 30:49 And, yes, absolutely, Carolin, the in-/famous "What if I Suck?" thread has taunted and haunted me, waking and sleeping, since right around My LibriV...

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

Thanks, again, for your kindness, Carolin. "This, too, shall pass" is one of those mantras I've overused over the years. The trick is recognizing when, in fact, a mood or mode or phase or whatever-you-call-it has passed, then not carrying forward whatever behavior patterns I've picked up because of ...

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

Thank you, Carolin and JoJo. It's a little bit normal for me to fall apart this time of year, sorry to report. At least I can claim that this year is nowhere near as rotten as last year, therefore, I'm remembering to count my blessings. Hope y'all're as well as can be hoped.

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

And thanks, again, JoJo. I'm sorry I'm "past due" getting this project completed, just so's ya know. Even though it's been rumored that the "completion date" field in the project setup template is destined to be vanished, I put something in there just to keep to form. I can remember how it felt to s...

More than a week since I've been directly LibriVoxily productive, but such a week: Section: 09 - VIII. Sarah Trefusis URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ck/goldenscarecrow_09_walpole.mp3 Length: 50:14 Then again, this [imo] was the "darkest" of this book's chapters, despite the French Mai...

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

Section 8 is PL OK. Thank you very much, JoJo. Section 9 has (finally!) been recorded and is about to be edited. Nankin vase? I had to do a double take on the first word, as I'd never encountered this that I take to be an older usage for Nanking/Nanjing. Good deduction! I'm glad that's what it is, ...

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

My turn to say, "Take your time!" :) And I appreciate your taking the time to put your intentions in writing, JJ. Myself, I've been battling congestion; not sick, just non-conducive towards recording. Using the opportunity to reacquaint myself with {other kinds of} computer-games. :? Happy holly-daze!

More of Walpole's mind-blowing (for his day) psychological profiling: Section: 08 - VII. Barbara Flint URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ck/goldenscarecrow_08_walpole.mp3 Length: 48:56 And more of those technical distractions: another mysterious (to my mind) 127K bit rate; and the backgr...

No wheezy-worries during this recording session:

Glad you didn't hear any wheeziness {&c.} in Section 05/Chapter IV, JJ, thanks.

Re: [SOLO] The Golden Scarecrow by Hugh Walpole - ck

No problem, Cynthia. No need to rush. Smiling bravely, I thank you for your patience. I always feel in a bit of permanent rush, because sooner or later, there will no longer be a personal reason to feel rushed: I'm recording for Grandma; she's just been moved from her home into A Home, and I'm not ...
