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.
