Re: [SOLO]The Art of War by Niccolo Machiavelli - tg

Book 2 part 3 (section 05) is uploaded and ready for PL.


It was really hard to keep all of the different troop movements sorted out in my head... I can understand why Peter Whitehorne's Elizabethan translation in 1573 included diagrams for this part of the book!

Re: Audiobook Narrating

About one chapter a day - say 25-30 minutes, is about all I can manage, although on a good day with little else to do, which is very rare, I might manage two chapters ... It took me 3 weeks or so to read and edit a 9.5 hour book for Audible. I think you're doing pretty well there. It takes me month...

Re: Audiobook Narrating

Very interesting. I thought I was the only one who had to read stuff through before recording. I find this especially so when recording older texts. When I'm doing well I go 1 minute between fluffs, maybe 2 minutes. When I'm tired or at the end of a session it falls to 30 seconds or even less. Good ...

Re: [SOLO]The Art of War by Niccolo Machiavelli - tg

It all took a bit longer than I had planned. Games and Language apps are very interesting, but often you are reading a series of disconnected phrases. Only sometimes do you get a set of connected sentences. Mmmm. I'll be keen to do more commercial VO stuff, but it's good to be back. Here is another ...

Book 2 part 1 is uploaded and ready for PL. There may be a few weeks gap to the next section, as I have been persuaded to take on some commercial VO work. :wink:

Re: ~[SOLO]The Art of War by Niccolo Machiavelli - tg

Thanks linny. Here is the second half of book 2. I’ve been sitting on it for a few days, as I’m going to write a decent summary to get PLers interested. But it makes no sense not to upload it. I’ll try and write the summary today. Hopefully that will encourage a DPLer (it makes sense to let people k...

Re: ~[SOLO]The Art of War by Niccolo Machiavelli - tg

You would be very welcome to DPL or PL as much or as little as you like! As you can tell from the postings I'm not adopting a very ahem heavy production schedule. I hope to get things moving a little quicker now, but even with improvements things won't be too hard to keep up with. :) I notice you ar...

Re: ~[SOLO]The Art of War by Niccolo Machiavelli - tg

Still here on this. I'm having to reorganise the way I record. I never seem to get a free day any more, so I'll have to record in the evenings in little chunks and edit them together. This will only work if I can leave the microphone set up ready to go etc. so I have to work out how to do this and h...

Re: Music - What are you listening to?

I like lots of different styles of music. My current approach to finding new music is to go into the local hospice charity shop in Malvern and see what looks good in the CD selection. (this shop has a big music section). Some stuff is mind-blowingly good (Buena Vista Social Club, Ravi Shankar, Andre...

Re: What is the longest sentence you have found at LV?

168 words from Studies in the Art of Rat Catching (if we are measuring a sentence as the number of words until you get to the next full stop): If one passed down the red gravel churchyard path, and on in front of the south door to the far corner, under the big cedar, a small door would be found, whi...
