Hello! Apologies for the delays in PLing, real life was busy last weekend but now that another weekend has come along, I am able to do some catching up. I proof listened to Chapters 1, 5, and a relistened to 17, notes are below.

Chapter 1
There are a number of long pauses that are long enough that they seem awkward. Please trim the pauses down a little to make them sound more natural. The pauses I noticed were at times:
4:31
4:51
7:36
25:03
26:57

There were also some repeats of text that have not been completely edited out at the following times:

11:44 Repeat of "But we didn't mix much with the ghosts at any time, all except an idiot lad there was in the village"
13:36 "But just then in came butcher" repeats
18:22 "and he did not shake his head very hard when the captain took down"
18:41 "and I felt that it was ridiculous to blame the l--"
28:53 "Captain had been more of a pirate than a gentleman mariner"


Chapter 5
At time...
0:22 Please include the chapter title "A Tragedy in Little" before reading "One"

6:27 A little repeat on "real- really sleepy"

10:01 Another small repeat "for it made, it made him feel fidgety"


Chapter 17 is PL OK! Just a note for future recordings, however, that it is almost always preferable for you to edit the recording you first turn in over re-recording. If you edit the original and reupload it, the PLer only needs to check on the things noted in the PL Notes before OKing it. However, because you rerecorded, I needed to listen to the whole thing over again in order to OK it. Your future PLers will appreciate the time-saver!

Editing tip for newbies: if you start editing from the changes at the end of the recording and move toward the beginning, the times I noted with issues will remain accurate throughout your editing session.

Thank you all!

Jill :)

I'll pick up #2, Carolin, if nobody else has claimed it. Hopefully I can improve on my turn-around time. Life with young children...
