Thanks Linny! That didn't overwrite the section 10 did it?

Eh, we'll mention it in the prooflistening. If you want to fix it immediately and re-upload you can, or you can wait and see if there is any more feedback from PLing, and then make all the fixes at once.

Yes, that would be best.
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

No, it didn't. Alex added a p at the end of 128kb so the original section 10 was protected and making the change was easy. No need to reupload anything. If there are PL notes then just be mindful of using the correct file name.

Hello. Here is section 8. I did not use compression or normalization on this or the other 2 files - if you think I need to just let me know and I will apply to the file when I revise it if needed.

Section 10 here

I enjoyed this so much. I know this part of France very well and it was so lovely reading about the past here.
Wonderful voice for this!

You know already about the incorrect introduction and I'm sure you'll get the file name done properly. That's all that's of real concern.

I would like to recommend that you truncate the pauses a bit. I'm not a role model, but I rarely have pauses in prose pieces that are more than a second in length. 1.5 seconds works in many cases, and more than 2 seconds can sound terribly long. But you seem to know what you like. It's really up to your taste and, possible, the wishes of the BC.

And here is section 5. All feedback appreciated as I find my way. This one is really fun to read. But while I envy all the chateaux and gardens, I do not envy the role of women in the society she describes.
