Thanks for fixing that!

I will be finishing this eventually... I swear! November is NaNoWriMo though, so probably not then. My original completion date was January 2009, so I'm still technically on target ... :-} Sorry for all of the delays!!

I took a hiatus to get married, but here, at long last, is chapter 14. There is hope on the horizon for our young hero!

And here is chapter 13, in which our Hero spends the night in the slammer. Oh no!

And my semester is done! Hooray! My goal is at least one recording per week, now that I don't have to worry about schoolwork as well.

I'm always surprised by what my microphone doesn't manage to pick up. When I first started recording I got frustrated because every time I sat down to do it, one or more roosters decided that he needed to crow every three minutes for the next two hours. But then I realized that even though it was qu...

Here's chapter 12. http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ld/fame_fortune_alger_12.mp3 I used the noise reduction feature again, see if it is still distorted. If it continues to sound odd, I'll just not use it for the rest of the book. Also, am I the only one who's having a hard time posting? It's...

Here is chapter eleven and (as soon as it finishes uploading) chapter ten. I used the noise reduction feature in Audacity, and I think it got rid of the hissing noise. I listened to a bit of the talking, and it doesn't seem to have affected the audio with weird noises or distortion, but I didn't lis...

The saddest thing I ever read was a picture book about the elephants in the London Zoo during WWII. Apparently they decided to kill all the animals so they wouldn't suffer/get loose during a bombing and kill everyone/eat valuable food. But the elephants wouldn't eat the poisoned food, and their skin...

And since I'm on a roll editing, here is chapter 8 as well. Chapter 7 I did with my old mic, before it broke, but then forgot to post it. Chapter 8 is done with a new mic I just bought. I had to buy the cheapest one they had, much as I would have liked nicer gear. I noticed as a was editing out the ...

Here is chapter 7. For some unknown reason, the window thing is refusing to let me move the Listen! link from chapter 8 to chapter 9, where it would be correct. I guess it won't matter until I finish chapter 8.

You're right. It is chapter 9. I am at a loss as to why I skipped chapter 8 completely. Ah well, at least I'm working on it again.

Alright, I managed to cobble my microphone back together, since I still had most of the pieces. It seems to record okay, but I will still have to buy a new one soon, since it digs into my skin with the broken bits. Also, I'm not sure, but I think the movement of my jaw as I talked was making the hea...

I'm feeling really bad about this. My microphone broke (don't get me started. I was not even home when it happened.) I need to buy a new one, but, really, that's not a good excuse. Nor is busyness at work or school. I'm going to make getting a new mic a priority. I promise not to flake out on this. ...

Thanks for the update Rowen!

And, as always, thanks for the proof-listening Janie!

Holidays up through Twelfth Night are over, finally, so hopefully I'll find some time to actually do some recording ....
