wow ! I was on tenterhooks throughout the story to get to know this mysterious name. I imagined all kinds of strange things but it didn't come close to the ending
On the other hand, he simply should have said "Greenville" when asked about 'G' and all might have been well
he made it a bit too hard on himself by concealing it.
This story was highly entertaining and you narrated it absolutely beautifully.
I cannot really give you any improvement advice because in my opinion it was optimal.
It's well paced, you don't speak too fast for readers to follow, but still lively enough not to be dragging it out too long. In the direct speech you give them voices and character, which makes a story very interesting to listen to. What more can one want ?
Already looking forward to hearing you in another project (maybe even one of the next Black Cat issues
Ok, but before I can mark this one as ok, there is a tiny bit that needs correcting:
> at 5:25
: (p. 27) missed part of sentence: "as in many New England towns
Now I need to assure you: there is no need to re-record it
all from scratch ! We highly encourage practicing edits instead. I mention it because some new readers went and re-recorded a perfectly good recording because of a couple of errors. This is too much work for the reader and also for the prooflistener, as we have to re-listen to it all as well, instead of just Spot PLing the part that was wrong. And chances are high there are other errors in the new text
So the easiest way to Spot correct is this. You record the part of the sentence, or the entire sentence if you prefer, in a new Audacity window. Then noise clean and amplify so that it will sound a bit similar to your previous recording. And then highlight, and copy/paste it in the right slot in the original masterfile. In the end I listen to the sentence before and after the new one and maybe manually adjust the volume to make it sound similar. And that's it. It's good to practice editing from the start, it will get easier with each recording.
If you need further help, please don't hesitate to ask
Oh and simply name the file exactly the same way
than before, the old file will get replaced by the new file then.
Thanks, and congrats to your very first official recording. I am happy it was a section for the Black Cat.
