It is fine to go ahead - I orphaned the readers who had not posted since last July - so they are yours if you want them - if there are too many just say what you want and I will change the window and we will try to attract other readers.
The PM's were to readers of sections which have not been orphaned
. I was told to go there from multiple source, situations, and people. If/when I get back to aus, will likely check out melbourne.
That said about recordings...
4 is more than I take on simul (or atleast close to the max) because, frankly, I don't like a lot of lot queued up because I'd prefer to have a few queued up for a few weeks tops than to have, for exmaple, tons queued up and not able to get to a few for months. Basically, if I take on a reading I want ot have it completed within a few weeks (for responsibility of project). Sometimes it's longer but that's just a personal protocol (And I think a pretty good one); but it's a personal guideline (that can fluctuate at times).
07 looks spot on Very interesting. Definitely doing that.
04/02 decently interesting
the last one...not certain. Most of this reading has been incredibly sensible and consistently interesting but I usually steer away from religious-based reads (personal dislke). However, not certain the angle that read will have and it might be interesting (plausible considering previous parts of the material).
So yeah, don't want to have the same problem as before (with someone claiming the reads but not uploading/recording) but will do those asap. Thanks.
Finally, and this is not a criticism, but merely an observation...each reading length is 7-8,000 words for this project it seems. Most readings I've seen have been 2-5000 words so these are considerably longer if not at least double the lenght of many other recordings. That could have had something to do possibly with people signing up and not doing them (just a, possibly wayward, theory). that said, I want to avoid doing that (i.e. the reason why another person is doing these other recordings, me in this case, is because people who had signed up didn't do them, I want to avoid doing that myself, obviously!) and am noticing that 4 is a lot, even though much of the reading is incredibly interesting and am looking forward to them.
In short, although 4 7-8000 word recordings seems slightly daunting, okay for now, may drop one or two, but will notify. cheers.
