Section 50 Recorded
Length: 10:00 (mm:ss)
https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/newwhitness1922_50_chesterton_128kb.mp3

I found that name of a German play rather channelling (Oberammergau). I must have rerecorded that line 10 times.

When you get the time, please send me a copy of any unclaimed section.
Thank you ~ I will proof listen it later today.

Any particular section you would prefer to see? Picking for people is not my favorite thing! :mrgreen:

Must've missed that. Shall I cut that out and reupload?
Yes, please! :-)
Okay, it's back up. Let me know if further changes are needed.

Fair enough. In that case, could you send me a copy of section 15?

If you need me to change anything, please let me know. I am practicing to audition to narrate audiobooks, so any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
Thank you! There is one thing to be fixed. @0:23 you got part of the intro a little mixed up. You put "Section 41" at the start of the section that should go like this: "G.K. Chesterton's Newspaper Columns: The New Witness - 1922, by G. K. Chesterton. Section 41". :-)

As for constructive criticism, I would recommend leaving a little bit more time between sentences. Also, watch out for loud breaths. You don't want to take the breathing away, as then you might sound dead :-), but perhaps deamplfying some of the breaths, or watching out for where you are taking breaths might help.

I hope that helps! You have a lovely voice and did a very nice job! I would just watch out on the pacing/timing, etc.



So sorry! Just saw this. I will rerecord the whole thing today. Nothing like feedback and revision to get better! :)

Hi Stacy,

No need to re-record the entire thing! Just the intro mixup needs to be fixed! The rest I only gave for future reference because you asked for constructive criticism. :-)

No, I wanted to and already did it. Seriously, I'm trying to listen to myself and improve and record something every day. Do let me know if this one sounds better. :) And thank you again for the feedback. I'll take more if you have it!

Thank you, Arden ~ it is PL OK!

I would suggest to watch the pacing between sentences, so that it easy to tell what is the beginning and end of a sentence. I hope that helps!

I've put your name in the section to hold it for you until you decide if you want to do it or not. :-)

I'll take it. I'll start today. Hopefully won't take me too long to finish. Thanks for holding.
