Part 1 Chapters 5-6 is PL OK. (That was fun listening to Jasmin in action!).


One little note:
2:34
This is all part of the narrator’s part, but there is an awkward connection between“…another” and “part…” – Maybe if you faded in to “part” it would flow more smoothly.

“Domestic mails are those that carry letters from one part of a country to another part of the same country, or from one part of a city to another.”
I fiddled with this a bit, but I don't know if it made an appreciable difference.

Minor word switch in section 8 for Jip. I'll PM Rafe to see if we can get a redo. If not, though, it won't be too bad.

(2:40, for my own reference. :wink:)

EDIT: I finished editing on that section anyway and uploaded it with the switched word in it, just in case of any unusual eventuality. :)
No worries - I've uploaded the corrected sentence here:

Thanks, Rafe, this is perfect! I've incorporated that into the completed section.

(TJ, when you PL, if you just use the section number in your posts, instead of Part/Chapter, it would make it a little easier on me. :) )

Sounds good!

I would be glad to redo that line if it would help!
Not necessary. Thanks!

Section 3 is PL OK!

Well, it's obvious by now that I overestimated my own capability when I said I planned to do a section a day. Or I underestimated how worn out I would be when I got home from work each day. Still, section 11 is now ready for PL, and that leaves only 5 sections to go. I think it's reasonable to say we should be able to finish up in about a week.

Have you and Jasmin had a chance to try to get that missing line for the seagull yet?

Hi,

I saw the orphaned lines for the seagull on the "orphans" forum and have given it my best shot. Here it is.

I see now that someone else may have put up their hand to do it so please discard this if it is no longer required.

Kind regards,
Madeleine

Well, I underestimated how quickly you would pound these out :clap: and how long it would take for me to PL when I volunteered, so I'm a bit behind... :help:

She's had quite a busy week, but we both will have more time early this coming week. :D

Thank you so much! :D Yes, there is another reader who is planning to give it a shot, but I so appreciate your help! If she doesn't have a chance to get to it, it is great to already have the line needed. And now she doesn't need to feel any pressure, either, if she changes her mind. :mrgreen:

Section 7 (Part 2 Chapters 5-7)

One small note:

At 21:51 the line reads "The man's a fake." Somehow the the final "k" sound in "fake" got cut off (maybe during editing?). This could be confusing because it sounds like the man is a "fay" :lol: . This could easily be repaired by adding a "k" sound to the end of the word (it doesn't even have to be the original reader -- my experience when editing has shown is that everyone's "k" sound sounds pretty much the same :D ).

Otherwise, Section 7 is PL OK!

Nicely done!
