Thanks for pointing out this article! I especially like when the best-selling audiobook narrator says her recording studio is now "in the garage, next to the paint cans. It’s not glamorous.” She finds that her home studio is working better than going into the recording studio because "The isolation allows her to disappear further into the story, an experience she describes as part meditation, part vigorous interaction with the language. She says, “You know you’re on the right track when you disappear into the story.""

Very true. You "become" the characters

Far be it from me to harsh her mellow, but is she certain that it’s not the paint-thinner fumes?

Cheers,
Chris
