I remember this story as well !!! It is a bit similar to another one I heard too, "Six come through the whole world". Well read, Eva :thumbs:
I have two or three inaccuracies as far as the wording goes, nothing to worry about, in my opinion. Hope you agree.
I found only two small errors, that change the meaning a bit. Maybe if you could redo those sentences ?

> at 0:27: in the intro, you need not repeat "Story 134" right before the title. Oops, maybe I overlooked that mistake in Hans in Luck, I cannot remember whether you did it there too, sorry :(

> at 3:44: "They went onwards, and then saw a pair of feet lying and part of a pair of legs, but could not see the rest of the body." - you say "lying on a pair of legs" which doesn't make sense in this context

> at 17:03: "I have deserved this for my haughtiness and pride" - it is haughtiness, not naughtiness ;) but arguably she was naughty too, but I think she meant her pride here in this context

The rest was perfect, thanks :)

Hi Sara!

This is a routine reminder that this claim is about to expire. If you plan to submit the file within the next two weeks that would be lovely, though I know it is a long story so I would be prepared to grant an extension if necessary.

If you already know that you will not complete the story by the expiry date (Aug 17) please let me know so I can open up this story for other people. This is fine, BTW, it happens quite frequently and just means that when you are ready to record again you can claim something new!

Cheers,

Elizabeth (BC)

three time's the charm, ey ? especially in fairy tales :wink:

Well the good news is, the correct sentence is perfectly added and the end silence is 5 seconds :thumbs:

But this time you exported the recording in stereo, instead of mono. No worries though, I quickly converted it back into mono again and will re-upload the correct file. So you have nothing further to correct here. Only remember to stay in mono for your future recordings. Do you have Audacity ? Usually if you once set it on mono, it should stay that way :hmm:

Also careful with the filenames, they should not use capital letters !

Three feathers PL ok now. Thanks !

Oh and there has been a new opening in the MW, in case you want to have a go at another tale :mrgreen: First come first serve.

Thank you for the reminder. I plan to submit the recording on Friday, 11th of August. If something went wrong, I will tell you right away. I am sorry. I've got a new job. So I was trying to manage between the two. I don't want to give up the recording. Talk to you very soon. :D
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D

Four more sections have been orphaned. I will wait a day for anyone on the project thread to claim before posting in the official "orphans" post over in Readers Wanted.
