Let me just say, that poem in the first post is excellent! Sonia, that is such a great poem, thanks for writing it!

I am BCing two Group projects that keep moving back and forth between Readers Wanted/Found. They're moving very slowly, so I'm not sure what the timeframe will be for them to be catalogued (maybe a few more months?)
My Solo isn't even close to being finished, however (I have around 62 more sections to go. They're short, but it's rather tedious work.) My original deadline was July 2019, but I don't think I'll get it done by then. I'll try, though.
I will get my other reading job done (The Silver Bear) since I've signed up for one chapter only.

I finished my first section and claimed a new one. As an update: World's Library is down to 3 unclaimed sections ! Speakers familiar with Celtic languages are needed !!

I have a huge plea on editors :help: Sonia
Alas I have no time to spare now, or I would offer to help you.

Have we a list of editors . . . . . by that I mean volunteering specifically to edit for other readers? I've done that on a project I BC'd and invited the soloist to read it as my voice wasn't suited to the part, and she agreed but was short on time to edit so I did it. We thought it came out great! And I've stitched together a few duets, and one short dramatic piece a long time ago. These were all enjoyable experiences, but very time consuming.

well the editing job here is actually stitching together a dramatic reading, not editing the actual readings.

I don't think we have a list of editors. I never thought people would edit others' recordings. I certainly would prefer to edit my own ;)

I'm pleased to say, 3 chapters are already assigned. Awesome cooperation. Thank you all. :9:

Update on my plea for help in the DR: all 8 sections have found an editor and 4 have already been assembled. What tremendous team work we're displaying here. Thank you all :9: This project definitely will get to the March challenge accomplish list.

Great!

BCs: Do you have projects that are 75-80% claimed that can go on the list? We seem to be running short of "almost fully claimed" projects! :lol: Although if we do orphan sections on March 7, that will lead to more projects to clean up.

I just wanted to apply to PL the Coplas by Manrique and saw that Leni beat me to it. That project can move down on the finished list :9:

May I suggest this one to be included in the list in some capacity? It is still copyrighted for me in Europe...
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=67676
It is 50% claimed, but it is a small one, so only 6 sections left to claim&record. Could be a cleanup candidate...
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

Added it. I had seen that one earlier but apparently neglected to add it to the list. :)

I have this project that is fully recorded and has a DPL but it is going slowly, so it would be good to have someone else to PL, and maybe we can catalogue it in March!

[Portuguese] À margem da história viewtopic.php?f=12&t=51201 6 sections to PL, 3 to spot-check.

I know I'm not the BC of this project, but Huck Finn needs just one more section to be claimed: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=72844

Sorry Tricia! I had started my first ever BC project before I read this! Should I take it down or how should I handle it?
