Hi all - sorry I've been so quiet, just had a lot on the go, what with the Lockdown and working from home and all.

I am however 99% done with Section 2 of Villette, hope to upload it later today.

Take care everyone,

Kind regards

Hi Larry,

Sorry re Section 3 above, I guess it should be "The Playmates - Part 1" please, sorry (and Tom too) about that.

So, as promised, Section 4 is uploaded for checking please.

Section 04 - - - The Playmates - Part 2 - - - Length: 20:19

Thanks so much. I hope the story is taking shape and interest now. It may seem that it is more of a children's story in the early sections, as a lot of the dialogue is about Polly, but it does become more interesting as hopefully you will see in the progressing sections. The style is of course quite different to Emily, as Villette was written about 70 years before Emily of New Moon. Speaking of the latter, does the completed work stay in Solo section, or does it move to Completed Works? Or perhaps it is duplicated, have not checked. Anyhow, no matter.

It was most strange to only have a virtual Easter Friday church service this morning - live streaming via Utube, including communion. Thank goodness for technology. Our president addressed us in a speech again last night, and South Africa needs to be in lockdown for a further 3 weeks. Phew. It's playing havoc with industry both large and small. Anyhow, it is for the best, to flatten the curve of the virus in our country.

Blessed Easter to you,

Take care
Leanne

Completed works should be moved to Completed works forum. Sometimes we overlook doing that. :roll:

Hmmm. Did I not get this bookmarked?
Sorry to have missed these last chapters, but I will get right to them.

Yes, the shutdown is crazy. Our company kept going, but finally we were told to close. We are an online company that ships books to all of the US and around the world. We had already moved almost everyone to remote work except for the shipping department. I work in customer service and was already doing 3 days a week at home, so not so big of an adjustment for me. But, also in the household, my daughter now working remotely, and my wife with a couple of part-time things she's now doing online, and two grand-children doing their school online. Thankfully, we have reliable high speed interne!. But, with everyone hone, quiet time for recording is more difficult to come by.

Definitely not being able to get together in person for Holy Week and Easter was hard, but we maintain our sense of community as best we can. We're thankful for the technology that helps us do that.

Be back soon with some belated reports.

Hi Larry,

Totally do understand, as am finding quiet time a rather of a challenge myself. Absolutely no hurry, whenever you get to it is perfectly fine with me. I am just plodding along this side, as there are 74 sections I just need to keep the momentum going, on my side.

Take care :)

Here are some "Words of Wisdom" I stumbled across recently . . . .

I THINK WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, WE WILL REALIZE HOW VERY LITTLE WE NEED,

HOW VERY MUCH WE ACTUALLY HAVE,

AND THE TRUE VALUE OF HUMAN CONNECTION.
See you in the library . . . . .

Good observations, Tom.

Thought I'd record a little last night.
The only sound we have here on our little piece of the mountain are the sounds of nature, but the wind was howling so loud . . . .

Anyway, Leanne, you are PL OK through Section 5!

Oh hooray, thanks very much Larry. Shame, didn't mean you to have to listen to so many sections all at once.

I've recorded up to Section 23, but it's the editing that is the time consuming part.... as you know. So I am ahead in the story, and a bit strange to go back and edit much earlier sections. I just wanted to get a lot of recording done while I am at home, and because it is quite daunting having 74 sections to complete, that I will feel better if I can get through at least a third. Madness in my method, I guess.

Thanks so much

Please take care everyone

Leanne

Oh, that's just fine, Leanne! I just took advantage of the non-quiet time to do the listening. I've taken to recording late in the evening when I finish my shift on the phone and it's quiet.

I think your approach is good, and is what I often do. I have several section recorded for a long narration I'm doing and hope to get some more done tonight and then will work on the editing. Your editing is seamless, by the way, making very smoothing recordings!

Carry on!
