Hi Carolin,

I'd like to sign up for Section 1 if it is still available. I am a new reader, so I'll only start with one for now. Not sure if you need my "display name", but that can be Caledongirl.

Would love any beginner tips!

Thanks!

I will pass on one tip - not really a beginner tip since I still use it after 6 years here. Remember that you are "only recording" and there is a "delete" key you can use when you edit the recording before you let anyone else hear you.

My recorded files are always at least 50% longer than my final chapter uploads - say 30 minutes long for a 20 minute final file. While reading, if I don't like the way I started a sentence, I start it over. If I don't like where I paused for breath in a sentence, I do it over. If I think I can pronounce a word better, I just do it over. If a dog barks outside or a car horn sounds in the middle of a phrase, I just do that phrase over. If I discover a "stage direction" I didn't follow - like discovering only at the end of a sentence that it says "she whispered" when I spoke it full voice - then I do it again.

All these errors never get uploaded so no one else knows. I'm not on stage - I do not have to do it right the first time and every time, I only have to do it right one time.

So relax and enjoy the story. It is a great one!

Thanks, Todd

Thanks, Todd!

That is very helpful. I come from a theatre background, so having it right the first time has always been important :) I guess recording takes a lot of the pressure off! Thank you for the encouragement.

I look forward to getting started on this fun adventure!
