I will do some PLing in the future, but I don't think I could dedicate so much of my time to it as you do!
actually I have reached my limit also quite some time ago. I have taken on a bit too many DPL jobs, I'm afraid, and since I don't want to leave anybody waiting for feedback too long, my own recording have to take a backseat.
I know I need to cut down on new DPL jobs, but there's always something interesting coming up.

For many people this breaks the flow of the read through I would think, and so editing after finishing the recording is easier (I tried that, but found it (for me) to be difficult to match my enthusiasm and voice and tone and conditions each time if I had to rerecord something later).
oh I do it just the same way than you. Immediately when I notice a mistake, I re-read that part. You should hear my initial recordings LOL full of rubbish, stammering, bloopers, sentences spoken 10 times with occasional expletives in between
Sometimes my final recording is only half the length than what I was initially recording, because I spoke so many errors.
The two edits I still need to make in these remaining poems are errors I did not notice while I was recording and I only noticed them in the editing phase.
SO, while you may hear a seamless recording, there are some lines that I read over and over again, sometimes as many as 20! times
I so understand you...could have been me LOL
