So, I have given up attempting solos since I'm much here anymore, which will probably hold true for a while.

But, have managed to get confused at the process. Does this project get abandoned, or converted to a group project?

I think I have a few unedited tracks left to upload which I really must dig out, and finish -- or perhaps if it goes to abandoned it doesn't much matter.

Thanks for any advice :)

Thank you for posting!

When it is abandoned it gets added to a list where prospective new soloists or BCs can pick it up (and then it gets converted into a new solo or a group project, depending on the wishes of that person). Your recordings that you have already submitted would remain part of the project. :) If you have more sections done but not uploaded, it is up to you, really, whether you want to hunt for them & upload them, or not. As far as I am concerned, I am grateful for all you have done in this project and look forward to listening to the completed project, whatever happens to it after you abandon it. I'll leave it here until mid-December so you can upload more if you like (or not, if you don't), before I move it to the abandoned list.

Thank you for the kindness, and helpfulness, of your reply, Kathrine. :9:

So, all my fussing over unfinished letters was nothing, it seems like I didn't have any! :roll: So, I'll work in those edits to my mistakes in the next week or two and then this can wrap up.

Have a lovely weekend!

OK, I got a spot of time to wind this up! Thank you so much, Algy, for your kind investment of time and eagle ears! And thank you, Katherine, for MCing it! So awkward, I wish I was able to finish it, but I appreciate your help.

Good night for now, Keats Letters ....

Hi Kathrine!

Before you move this to abandoned projects, could you give me a few days to ponder picking it up as a "solo" myself. It would take about a year to finish as there are 165 letters with some of those needing to be split into smaller parts. I'd probably do it as more of a "duet" and leave it open for Eva to pop in once in a while to do some shorter letters as she felt inclined to.

Thank you!

Sure, we can leave it here for a few days so you can decide, Nemo :)

Thanks Kathrine!

I have decided to adopt this from Eva (thanks Eva!).

There is a preface, which I will read, and then 164 letters. However some of these letters are quite long running to 30-40 pages, so I will be splitting some of them up. Including the preface, I will need a total of 170 sections I believe.

Is that something it is easy for you to modify Kathrine? .... I know I can add sections, but in all of my solos where I have done that, I believe it only allows me to add them one at a time?

Of course, forgive me, but I am assuming you would be willing to continue as MC?

I will be changing the PL requirements from "special" to "standard" and will update that once I have access.

Also, I will be using Helen (HZFerr) as the DPL as she and I work together wonderfully and she joins me on all my solos. Thanks to to Algy for these first sections of Eva's that he PL'd ... I know she appreciated it!

I will fill in the MW once it's all set and I am in.

I look forward to this project ..it is truly a wonderful collection of letters from an amazing poet!

Changes have been made, this is now Nemo's project :)

I can add sections, but also just one at the time.
