Stage Directions for Act 2

Nice work, you put great character in it. Only a few notes:
10:23 - direction needs to include ‘Belinda’ here as it is the beginning of her line

15:53 - direction needs to include ‘Tremayne’ here as it is the beginning of his line

22:22 - direction needs to include ‘Baxter’ here as it is the beginning of his line
Thanks for your PL!

But, I must confessed that I am mystified by the notes above.
I've listened to those times and compared them to my marked script, but cannot find the lines that are missing names. It would have been helpful if you could have identified the lines that were missing the names. I can't find them. Otherwise, these are easy to correct with a little copy and paste usually.

I am thoroughly embarrassed. I thought I had been so smart with my PLing. I truncated the silences so there was less silence that I would have to listen to, saving me some time. I did not even think that would change the timing of notes. Silly me. Needless to say, that will not be happening again for me. Here are the true times, and the third one I corrected to say 'Devenish' as it is his line:

11:17 - direction needs to include ‘Belinda’ here as it is the beginning of her line (“Belinda: following to R. at back of table)

17:22 - direction needs to include ‘Tremayne’ here as it is the beginning of his line (“Tremayne: bending over her earnestly)

24:31 - direction needs to include ‘Devenish’ here as it is the beginning of his line (“Devenish: to Baxter, taking his arm….)

Thanks for the extra effort

That means I missed these three time - marking the script, reading, and my own line-by-line PL.

I'll get Act 3 in soon.

Larry, and Campbell, I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all your work! I'm antsy to be able to put this project in top priority!

It's a huge cramp on my LibriVox time having Scott's work at home these days. . . but it's not going to be forever, so my current snail's pace will pick up at some point. . .

And it's OK now. I find it annoying in the script how they sometimes forgot line breaks so it's very easy to miss the fact that there are new lines.
