Here's section 35:

00:57

I tried to improve the recording this time. Of course, I want to know the proof listener's feedback on both recordings. I don't mind re-uploading section 4 again. After all, I want to do my best. :wink:

I want to read "Please Sir, I Would Rather Not" in section 42. But I think, I should wait for the feedback before I start the new recording.

Thanks! :D

That sounds like a good idea - to wait for feedback before continuing! I'll sign you up for that section. Note that this story has a short poem following it that is to be read right along with the story. When you get to the end of the story just start right in with the poem and when that is done just say 'End of Please Sir, I would Rather Not'. The poem didn't have a title, so that's why it doesn't have a section of it's own. :D
FYI, the proof listener is not allowed to give negative feedback unless you specifically ask him for it. :wink: It's against LV policy to say anything 'not nice' about someone's recording, but if you ask for someone to tell you how to improve, then they are allowed to tell you. But you must ask for it first.
Thanks for recording, I'll put it in the MW! :D

Hello, Sara! This is Mark, your friendly DPL :-)
The proof-listeners try to catch things like long silences, repeated text, editing problems, volume problems, static, etc., but we don’t really make comments on reading style, unless you specifically ask for "Constructive Criticism".
If you wish, I'd be happy to provide it, but please ask :wink:
You could also ask me to send my feedback in a PM (personal message) rather than in a public forum. Please let me know what you prefer... 8-)

Hello, Mark! Nice to meet you. :D
Yes please, I want "Constructive Criticism". If it won't trouble you, please send me your feedback in a PM.

Thanks!

Hi Sara, there is nothing that would deserve a special "PM" treatment, your reading is very much fine, I don't have any suggestions for improvement :clap:
Here is my normal "non-critical" feedback on your sec.4 and 35.
1. Please note, these are "Stories worth RE-reading", I hear "Stories worth reading" :-)
2. The head post says: No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!. You've got 1.5 in both.
3. The head post says: There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.. You've got 0 in sec.4, 7 in sec.35

Thanks again, I enjoyed your reading! Please make the corrections, and I'll be happy to recheck them :thumbs:

Sec.20: 7.5 sec silence at the end, 5 sec. needed. Please cut, and it will be OK! :thumbs:

Thank you, Mark, for your feedback.

I will be careful next time and say "re-reading".

I don't know why but I have a problem with the timing thing. I will try and fix that too.

I want to ask you something. Should I save the files first as FLAC files? So I could return to it again and fix further problems. Or it doesn't matter.

I am planning on re-recording section 4.

I will fix the problems and re-upload them again. :D

I'd love to read section 60 The Little Protector if it isn't already taken.
