It works out to break section 08 at the end of VIII in "How I became an actor."

At the last moment, I decided not to read this section in my "talk like a pirate" voice.

If you would make the split regardless, please. The other, later section numbers would have to be done if we don't.

Anxious to hear your work!

Since I can buy myself another two months ... :wink: can I claim Black Fog?
Kevin, would you mind a lot giving me about an extra two weeks to do this past the due date? I am trying really hard to wrap up a solo and it would be a big help to know that space is there.

Yes, of course. Don't worry. I'm behind on my reading for this project and I'm not whipping myself. (I'm getting over some kind of flu or something.)

Outsiders would say it's just laziness that afflicts me.

Thank you, Kevin! :9: I'm stuffed with similar nostalgias and enjoyed this story very much.

I've hit a bit of a snag. After recording the first section and editing about half of it, I got an attack of sciatica, which means that it's painful for me to sit down. That really throws a monkey wrench in the editing process. I'm trying to work around and we'll how far I can get.

Sorry about the delay.

Sciatica! I get that, too. Thankfully I have a chair with some kind of electrically-powered roller in it that seems to help. Imagine! It was a gift 28 years ago when I never dreamed I would need it!

Get better and don't worry. Don't push yourself. This collection is moving slowly so there is no bother. (In fact, I'm one of the slow ones!)

If I could read something half as long, I would jump on "The Jewess." Marvelous story. Some lucky long-form reader ...

Haha! I feel the same way these days. I wish I had just a bit more oomph!

I'm going to start on Section 3 soon, however, and record just a little bit each day. We'll see how that works for me.
