I don't usually listen to completed projects either. But for dramatic works, I make an exception. The whole is so much greater than the sum of all its parts. :9: (The exception to that exception is works that I myself edited. I've already heard them enough! :lol: )

And section 6 is now uploading! :clap:

Tell Jasmin she did a fantastic job! :9: Nailed it! I used her lines to stand in for Zoe. It matches very well!

I'll stand by for any comments you may have, but that's about it. MW sections are all assigned and the cast list is ready.
Thanks, Devorah, I'll pass your compliment on to Jasmin!

What an exciting section! I agree that Jasmin's seagull fits in seamlessly -- if I didn't know it was her, I might not have recognized that young Australian girl!

Section 6 is PL OK! (and the most exciting section so far, imho :D ).

I only have one tiny note on Section 11:

At 13:50:

On the way out he noticed a schooner, the ship of Jack Wilkins, the pearl fisherman, at anchor near the entrance to Fantippo Harbor.

The words "fisherman" and "at" run into each other -- it might help to put a slight pause in between the words.

Other than that, Section 11 is PL OK!

Section 14:

I have a teensy tiny note -- almost not worth mentioning. But since you're such an audio artist, Devorah, I'll go ahead and mention it and you can decide.

At 33:53 between the word "head" and the word "quickly," there is an extra word "to" that does not make sense. It should be possible to cut it out.

"Away off somewhere among the tangled mangroves an owl hooted from the swamp and Too-Too turned his head quickly to listen."

Otherwise, Section 14 is PL OK! Nicely done!

I'm sorry, TJ, but I don't hear it. I found that sentence, but after playing it back many times, I don't hear an extra word. Every time, it just sounds like, if anything, there is just a very deliberate 'd' sound at the end of "head." :hmm:

Did you PL the Prologue already? It is still showing in the MW as ready for PL.
