Hi all.... I just wanted to share this tip for anyone that prints out scripts to read from. It has made it so much easier for me to keep track of multiple projects I'm working on. I print myself a script and at the top of the page I put this text which helps me keep track of what, where, when, who etc. that applies to each section/chapter I've signed up for.

This is especially useful if I take any length of time away from a reading, I can easily go back and see what stage I'm at, and where to find my project in the forum threads.

Just wanted to share, in case it made anyone's life a little easier :)

Excellent suggestion! I don't print out my texts but I do copy them into a word processor document so I can make notes, highlight problem areas, etc. Now I'll add this at the top. Thanks. :)

thats great domenica!

i also have a txt file on my laptop in which i put notes of everything i might forget - links to projects, links to texts i might want to record/bc, tricias explanation of how replaygain works, stray reservation codes, notes to self, etc.. im not half as organized as you are, but writing things down definitely helps :)

Thanks so much for the link Ruth! I didn't know about the reader page, that will definitely be a feature I'll be using going forward :D
