3 sections reopened!
I'd like to claim them, if I could.
Yes, please and thanks! This project is almost finished, so a fairly quick turnaround (a week or two) is appreciated, albeit not required. :)
Here's the first, for Section 102, "Little Girls are Best"

If this sounds good, then I can finish the other two today.

It doesn't sound "good". It's "great"! 8-)

PL OK! (I like "roses red and skies of blue" better than talking about violets. Violets are purple!)

Please do continue!

Awesome, thanks!

I like that phrase, too -- reminds me of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

Thanks! PL OK, but please watch the beginning silence. This one is getting close to 2 seconds; we aim for about 0.5-1 second. :)

Hi!

Can I take section 82? This would be my first recording so it seems like a nice one to start with :)

Thanks

Welcome!

You can, but I will want it as soon as possible since the project is almost finished. You haven't done a 1-minute test yet; if you're confident about your tech settings, I'm okay with you foregoing it. But I really want this poem submitted in the next week or so (with proper volume, negligible background noise, etc.), so if you need verification of your tech settings, please do the 1-minute test right away.

I'll hold this section for you for a week; if you haven't done the test by that time and/or submitted the poem, I'll open it up to someone else.

Sorry for the rush! Usually there's more time for newbies to settle in. But I expect the other two poems any day now (the reader is pretty quick on recording them), and I don't want this project to drag on for one last 2-minute recording. :) Holler if you have questions!
