The time has come for...

.... my first solo 8-)

It's a collection of short stories, so I guess it's a good stepping stone between an individual short story and a full novel. And these are really interesting and original short stories, to boot :)

Btw. Should the title include Polish characters? I'm not sure.

Word count of individual stories:
"Na wzgórzu róż"- 3060
"Szalona zagroda" - 2300
"Po stycznej"- 3350
"Zez" - 3230
"Cień" - 5130
"W willi nad morzem" - 5450

I still can't figure out how these word counts will translate into running time, so perhaps one or two additional sections will be needed.

Hi,
I'm curious how fast people read so I did this math, hope it helps.
A word count on your submitted short story -
"Z LEGEND DAWNEGO EGIPTU" is 1799 words.
Your file is 11.16 minutes so you read that at 161 words per minute.
Doing the math on these numbers brings your duration times to approximately:

"Na wzgórzu róż"- 3060 words - 19 minutes
"Szalona zagroda" - 2300 words - 14 minutes
"Po stycznej"- 3350 words - 21 minutes
"Zez" - 3230 words - 20 minutes
"Cień" - 5130 words - 32 minutes
"W willi nad morzem" - 5450 words - 34 minutes

161 wpm is a good rate, I read a bit slow at 144 wpm.

Thanks for those calculations :)
161 wpm is a good rate, I read a bit slow at 144 wpm.
I'm trying to slow down a bit. Reading the way I do now makes me stumble quite often. I believe that if I slow down I'll have more time to "digest" the words, which will not only make my recordings easier to listen to, but will also allow me to save some time I now have to use on editing out slips and such.

I'll MC this for you - yes you will need to put accents everywhere - that way I have something to copy and paste for the catalogue and from those word counts the stories will be much less than an hour - 20-30 mins probably

Back soon with window

All set up
I take it that is the title of the first story ? In English books of short stories often have titles like "Dracula's Ghost and other short stories - if this is the case here your intro etc wouldn't mention chapter - just the name of that story - (I struggle having much idea about Polish I fear but I don't think any of the other admins do much better )

I set up a sample for the titles - please leave the number in I want a format that I can use in the catalogue - variious steps of the cataloguing strip accents so I will copy and paste the field
I think you have MW access? Ask any questions

"Na wzgórzu róż" is both the title of the first story and the title of the collection.
Yes, I have access to the MW.
I added the titles and the reader. Which other sections do I edit (now or as the project progresses) and which are edited by the MC?

Sorry I missed something - no accents in file names - they break things

OK, so I can't use Polish characters in URLs. How about the section names in the MW? No Polish letters either?

No
Everything else is just text and will work . File names are tricky with accents - and many ordinary punctuation marks and as they are used by a variety of software it is better to leave them out - all French and Geman ones do not use them
Sometimes the links actually break othertimes you get somethink that looks like this
http://librivox.org/%D7%90%D7%94%D7%91%D7%AA-%D7%A6%D7%99%D7%95%D7%9F-love-of-zion-by-%D7%90%D7%91%D7%A8%D7%94%D7%9D-%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%A4%D7%95-abraham-mapu/ which does work :D

OK, I got rid of the Polish diacritics in the file names in the MW. I hope it's OK now.

Hey
I think we are at cross purposes here - I want the titles in the MW to be proper Polish. I intend that the catalogue page will be proper Polish

The filenames are what you call your mp3 file - that is the only part that will not have diactrics
so they will be nawzgorzuroz_1_grabinski.mp3 etc

So please - leave all the summary and everything you can see in the MW titles as proper Polish -
Anne

Everything is just beatiful now - just needs some recordings :clap:

I just wanted to let you know that I've begun working on this project. I've just recorded the 1st short story. Now I "only" have to edit the recording.

OK, here comes the 1st story- "Na wzgórzu róż" http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/arb/nawzgorzuroz_1_grabinski.mp3 21:34

I'm still quite new to editing and I've been told that it's actually easier to fix a file that is too silent than to soften a too loud one. That's why I'm rather timid when it comes to amplifying stuff and this file may be too quiet at times. Besides, there's this weird effect that I don't know how to fix. I don't know how to describe it but it sounds a bit like a buzz immediately after my words. I know that you're not a PLer but could you please take a look at this one when you have a minute?

Btw. should I put a tick in the "completed" box in the MW next to section 1 or is this only done after PLing?
