Hello!

I have section 9 finished and ready for PL. Let me know what needs fixed for that one. I'm hoping to have more done by middle of next week. Thanks again so much for the French soundbites they help tremendously!

ah a new section, wonderful. What a tragic ending. I'm a bit confused though, if Sylvia was already dead, who was it that moved and opened the door ? :shock: And I'm happy that nothing happened to the cat, I feared it was one of those stories where the cat died :(

the reading is excellent and your French was definitely improved :thumbs: glad I could help. :9:

There is only one tiny little cut to make:

> at 11:16: repetition: "he said to me" – can be cut once

The rest is fine. Thanks and have a nice weekend.

thank you, Eva, and good to hear from you again. Here all is fine with me, just the whole situation is a bit depressing, but I'm not ill.

Both sections now PL ok :) Hope you are ok too

Hello!

I hope you are doing well! I have the first section of the street of the lady of our fields done. It probably has some pronunciation issues (specifically with the french woman's accented English and the French at the beginning ) any help there would be much appreciated. I have section 7 done, I just need to edit it. I'm hoping to get to it in the next couple of days.

Section 13

Hope you are doing well!

no it's actually quite fine. The old lady must have a strange accent, so I think you did it quite well, considering :mrgreen: I think this time we need not change anything. I'll mark it PL ok. ("Why Susie !" was making me giggle :lol: )

thanks, and here all is well, I hope the whole crisis will soon turn back to normal free life though. :?

oh I loved this story. Quite romantic, but still with a gothic touch over it all. Especially the ending with the tombstone is quite chilling, even though one expects it all throughout. Lovely !

Perfect reading and the French wasn't too bad. I think we need no corrections there. :thumbs:

Just one tiny error with the end disclaimer:

> at 35:11: "End of Section 7" – you say "Part" 7

I feel very picky now :?

Thanks, and have a nice week still !

ah a new instalment :9: thanks, Eva, wonderful reading again. Section 7 is now PL ok.

For Section 14 I have a few small notes, nothing difficult though:

> at 26:28: repeat: "Nothing, protested Clifford" – one version can be cut

> at 29:35: missed part (underlined) : "Now, where in the name of all that's reasonable could he have gone!" muttered Clifford, looking down the street.

> at 31:50: repeat: "and then" – can be cut once

Looking forward to the rest of the story. Can anybody be so naive :lol: But maybe Hastings knows all along but doesn't want to deal with it.

All good here, thanks. With you as well hopefully. :) Summer holidays starting tomorrow afternoon. 8-)

see you for the next part...

thank you Eva, Section 14 is now PL ok :clap: Yes, only 2 sections left and then this project can get catalogued. Proves again that slowly but steadily one can reach any goal. :thumbs:

I started PLing Section 15 now, and the beginning was pretty good but then suddenly, from 9 minutes in (in fact from the beginning of Chapter 6) a lot of repeats and stumbles are left in :( I started making notes, but after half an hour to get through barely 5 minutes of text, I stopped. I think maybe you uploaded the unedited file by mistake, because in my experience, it's unusual you leave so many errors in. :?

Here are my initial notes, but at 13 minutes in I stopped and thought it more time-efficient to ask you first to upload the correct file ;)

> I also noticed that the noise is quite high, another hint that it may be the unedited file

here all the repeats that occur in a few minutes only:

> 9.21: chapter number "six"
> 9.37: the clatter of workmen's sabots
> 10.34: and then came battering at the lodge gate during hours which even a gendarme
> 10.51: and took an ostentatious draught
> 11.18: Hastings hesitated for an instant
> 11.55: and did not appear
> 11.59: good evening
> 13.18: "Ole chap," he observed, "do you want

Will PL the file after you confirm the correct upload :)

and here all is fine so far, a bit depressed still because of the restrictions, but I try to cope. Hope you are doing well too.

super, now this was a flawless run-through :thumbs: Totally PL ok. And I am pleased it had a sort of happy-ending for both, even though it's still an open ending.

I guess what happened was you pasted the unedited chapter 6 into the file. Chapter 5 was all good already before. :hmm:

Well...all is good now :) One final section left to go :9: So close !

Have a nice day still

Please let me know a short update whenever you find time. Only one section to go, so cool :9:
