hello Scarbo my name/psudoname is Lysa Ali
and can i please have chapter 10?


thanks :)
Hello! You can certainly have chapter 10, and thank you for claiming! I have a few suggestions before you dive in to recording it:

First, it will be helpful to record a 1-minute test and post it to the Listeners & Editors Wanted forum for feedback. It's not an audition, and it's not required, but it will help you make sure that the tech specs are set up properly with your recording software.

Second, chapter 10 is pretty lengthy, so once you're all squared away with the 1-minute test, I'd recommend getting your feet wet by recording something shorter first, maybe around 1,700 words or fewer. It can be one of the shorter chapters of this book, or maybe another project that strikes your fancy. Something for one of the poetry collections in the Short Works (Poetry & Prose) forum can be a good place to start.

You have two months to record chapter 10, so that should give you plenty of time to start off with a shorter recording and get familiar with the editing process before you take on a lengthier chapter. In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions!

Okay, here goes! Here is Section/Chapter 8. 08:04

If everything turns out okay, I'd be happy to claim another chapter. Maybe section 13?

That was fun! Thanks,
Erika

hello scarbo, i've uploaded a test recording for the mods named test_alily
saved as mp3 and uploaded as test under MC

i didn't realise chapter 10 was the largest part, i'll do my best recording with plenty time for breaks
Great! If you could post the link to Listeners & Editors Wanted, along with the name of the recording software you're using, your operating system, and your mic type (USB or analog), someone will be along shortly to provide feedback. If you need to upload the file again to get the link, that's fine! As long as the file name is the same, it will just replace the old file that was uploaded under the same name.

You'll actually need to upload the file using the instructions on the first post of this thread, starting at step 8. (I know it's a lot of information to take in at once, but it does get easier the more you upload files! :)) Feel free to ask questions if you get stuck at any point, or if I need to clarify anything.

Looks like Section 13 was claimed by someone else? No worries. I'll claim 19, if that's okay.
