Hi,

I was preparing for Sofya (Sonia) when I noticed that in the Character Description list at the end of the Dramatic reading text, the part is claimed by Jofriday21.

Please let me know if there's a conflict and if I should continue working on this part.

Thanks!

Hi Wanda,

She orphaned the role a few weeks ago, so it's yours now. :)

Here's Chapter 18, Sonia.

This is my first dramatic reading, so any advice is welcome. If the voice I've chosen is irksome, let me know.

When this character whispers in desperation, I used the normal amplification. Is this the best way to handle whispering?

Thanks, Wanda! I don't find it irksome at all. :) The whispering seems fine to me, too. I'm not sure I really have a strategy for that. The only suggestion I might give for next time is to leave a tiny bit more space between lines (though it's fine for this one). Kim will get back to you with the PL! :)

PL Ok
At some point you need to do a "Read by" piece. Usually done on the first chapter for that character.
Editor note - watch the volume at 1:23 and 1:45. Although both are within limits the first is +1.5 and the latter is -1.5 which makes it quite a large swing.

PL Ok :thumbs: :clap: :thumbs:

For Chapter 3 there isn't much of a break between the last phrase and "end of chapter 3" (can be fixed in editing)

No need to post here when you've finished a chapter. I look at the mw and see what is ready to be PL'd from there.

Thanks, Kim!

Wanda, if you could just add the voice credit to the next section you record, that would be great. :)

Was reading section 14 (Part 2 Chapter 7) and noticed some errors in my text prep. The google doc has now been fixed and this does not affect any sections that have already been recorded, but FYI: Dounia does not speak in this section, as I had originally thought. The one line I had attributed to her should have been Razumihin's.

Section 10 (Part 2, Chapter 3) Razumihin is done! Boy, he just LOOOVES to talk, at 19:50 -- https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/crimeandpunishment_razumihin_10.mp3

Hope it sounds good!

P.S.: I've appended the Dramatis personae introduction for Razzy on this one. Do I need to keep doing that for every recording, or can I cut that out of future uploads? Also, I attempted to cut down on the amount of nasal breaths I took, but some I kept in because the recording (to my ears) sounded weird without them. I'll attempt to be even more conscious of breath-taking into the mic next time I record, I swear.

Thanks!
