We're awaiting hungrily for your recipes over at the Nonfiction Collection: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=69985! :P
Recipes submitted. Time: 6:46

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=69985&p=1461718#p1461718

I suspect this will be my sole contribution in the field of recipes. I thought recipes consisted of things like "cut small hole in cover and microwave 3 minutes". :mrgreen:

Hello I would like to read a short ghost story for this April challenge. It is GRAND-DAME’S GHOST STORY. I have read quite a few items for lv though not along the lines of "scary" stories.

I read a lot of fiction, but I just finished recording my first ever ghost story, Marjory, in The Broken Shaft. More importantly for me, at 9000+ words, it is my longest single recording ever by at least a factor of 2. I recorded it in one go. With coughs and throat clearings and repeated phrases, the raw recording is an hour and a half. I'm still editing, but it looks like it will come out to be about 55 minutes.
This recording is now PL OK. time is 53:01. Whew.

Cori:

An update...my counterfactual history project is complete. The 12 chapters have all been read and Lynda (lmnei) and Laurie Anne (chocoholic) have done an outstanding job as the PL and MC of the project. It is not cataloged. The total running time was 3:31.17

I had, like most historians, refused to even look at counterfactual history...but it was the only genre I could think of that I hadn't read here. I did, in fact come up with a way to use this material with my students, albeit very carefully and judiciously. So I did, end up re-evaluating my thinking. (Not the first time here at Librivox, but still, not a bad outcome.

Thank you so much for the efforts you made in setting up and maintaining this challenge. It was fun!

Philip

My ghost story, "Grand-Dames Ghost Story" 12:16 is now pl approved. :thumbs:
The story was not a HORROR story, just a good old ghost story.
Yes, I did enjoy the challenge, I did read, post and get the pl okay for a french poem and a ghost story on 2 seperate threads. I must thank you for putting the April Challenge out there.

Cori,
Tomas (wiltedscribe) has completed two more sections in Cakes and Ale - 18.40 + 15.20 on vegetables. Does that count toward the total time?

Just catching up here, on the final day of the challenge.

Well done Roger and Kara, got both o' you's. And yours, Philip and April, thank you! Noted re. Jurisprudence, Piotr -- 2 adventures this month is still great, though.

Wowsers, Penumbra, that's QUITE the recording time! :D Good going!

Lovely, MaryAnn, nothing like a deadline to get things done! And yes, thanks for the update, I'll count Tomas' other chapters too.

So ... just holding on to see if Colleen might have done a wee bit of Poetry over the weekend, or her chapter of The Golden Slipper ... only a few adventuring hours left to go, even accounting for timezones!
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Argh you guys! I waited too close to the deadline and struggled with recording. Fiction is hard! I'll get there. Next month's challenge, maybe?

So I took a whack at poetry instead, and contributed 2 to the monthly poetry collection (179):
