Here are Chapters 16-21.

Note, in Chapter 21, within the line "Betty has a lot of morning glories out there..." the scripts reads, "nodding her head." I took that to be stage instructions and omitted it from the dialogue. Let me know if you think this was the correct thing to do. :D
Thank you for the note. I added it for Kevin our narrator to pick up.

Aunt Priscilla is PL OK! I love the voice you picked for her. You did a great job. Thank you. :D
Awww, thank you. It was fun. Glad to be able to put that accent to good use again.

Chapter 8

https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/littlegirl_narrator_08_128kb.mp3

I wonder if they had cranberry sauce?
Is it possible to have Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce? I don't think so. :mrgreen:

These certainly are long chapters. Thank you again for being our narrator!

12:58 word change - There was a savory fragrance of turkey, sauces, and vegetables, and the table seemed literally piled up with good things.
I hear sausages …which sounds better to me than sauces but I suppose there must be sauces for Thanksgiving. I sure hope one of them tastes like gravy.

Ch. 8 fix.

Yes, I said 'sauces!' (Wishful thinking? I don't know...)

I'll try to get Ch. 9 done pronto and then take a short break to catch up on some other projects. Give me a shove as soon as you need more.

Thanks, I'll give a shout when I start editing the last available chapter. I have enough here to keep me busy for at least a week. I also have an ~3hr play to edit this weekend. :roll:

Hello,

I just came over from doing my first collaborative work. Having that done, I wanted to try getting into some of these dramatic readings. Not really sure how it works differently from those, but if you have a spot that you think I could fit then I'd love to help out. Otherwise, no biggie. It's been hard for me to figure out what's taken and what's needed with the dramatic readings.

Specifically, I don't know if that Henri de la Maur part has just gone unclaimed, or if it's waiting for someone who voiced the character everywhere else and just hasn't gotten to those lines. The only think I saw in this thread on the character was that it seems like the part was missed at first.

Whatever the case is, let me know. Thanks.

Hello! Welcome to dramatics. That character is indeed looking for a reader. If there was someone working on it their screen name would be there and it would show as assigned, e.g. Miss Recompense.

The thing to remember with dramatics is to start your recording with your voice credit: (role) read by (voice credit). The other thing to remember is to leave 3-5 seconds between each of your lines where edits are needed. Even if the other line is as minor as "he said".

So, sound like you want to give acting a try?
