Here are my notes that need attention.
In general there is a lot of traffic noise throughout. I highlighted just a couple of place where I think it could be cut out. I know the frustration of trying to find a quiet place to record. We just moved from a busy street to a more rural area. Now all I have to contend with is appliance noise. Section 12 has that television or radio in the background. It is your solo so you have some discretion, but I thought I should bring it to your attention.

Section 2 0:11-15 repeat “the unsheltered sea . . . “
Section 9 0:01 Repeat “Section number . . .
0:11 car noises - could be cut
11:02 longer pause
11:11 longer pause
11:24 “MISTAKE”
Ending silence: car noises and click at the end
Section 10 Intro is read as “Section 12”
Section 11 0:40 really rough edit
2:01 “MISTAKE”
Section 12 0:58 car horn that could be clipped
1:43 Here starts what sounds like a television in the background continuing to the end of the recording. Personally I find this very distracting and not quite up to the standards we want for LV.

Thank you. I will re-upload soon.
Also, how did you deal with traffic noises before?

Traffic is a tough one.
Fortunately, there were not a lot of horns.
Mostly it was just the tire noise and engine noise. Sometimes I just had to wait for something to pass, or pause and re-record the sentence again. I also had to use a lot of noise removal, and could do this on just a small section, too, if I had missed something. Certain times of the day were better than others. But, if I recorded at night, it seemed to bother the other people in the house. Our new place has a shed out back that I hope eventually to renovate into a real studio. We'll see.

I just noticed that the section 6 fie name is missing an underscore ( _ ). Upload the file with the correct file name and correct the link in the MW, Thanks.

I'm marking these all as PL OK except Section 2 which still need the section number at the end
And Section 6. You've corrected the underscore, but have three other links in the MW for that section.

You might want to consider cleaning up the ending silence on Section 15 which has a series of audible mouse clicks.

Good job!
