Quote:
Summary to come later. (Summary by Rachel)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/44115
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard, though any constructive criticism would be appreciated :)



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thanks a lot, Kathrine! :)

Chapter 1 sounds great! There's one repeat at 19:45. Those are some of the funniest versions of Bible stories I've ever heard! :lol:

Yeah, those were funny Bible stories. First I heard of Goliath being a Muslim :lol:

Chapter 1 is re-uploaded along with Chapter 2. I forgot to say, let me know what you think of the footnotes. I'm not sure if even I like the way I've been handling them. There are so many, but they're so interesting, but they do interrupt the story . . . I think it would be easier if it were third-person narration, but with the story being told in Elaine's words it seems funny to have me constantly interrupting her. I wonder if I moved them all to the end of the chapter? That might get so long, though. I could probably leave a few out too, but it's hard to decide which ones.

Oh, and about the footnotes--how you did them sounds fine. I think it sounds best to put them in like the person speaking is giving an explanation. (Sort of like if you were talking to someone about something but a little kid was there. You would tell them what certain terms/words meant so that they wouldn't interrupt you. :) )

Chapter 2 sounds great! There's one spot that needs fixing--at 28:40 something sounds funny, plus there's a plosive/click. Thanks! :)

Chapter 2 is fixed as best as I could - the sentence is worded a bit funny and she seems to break off in the middle of saying something, but I think I was mumbling a bit which didn't help so I re-recorded that bit. See if it sounds a little better?

Chapter 3 is also uploaded. Random notes:
- I love Elaine! She's such a relate-able character even if she's kind of stupid sometimes ;)
- I hate footnotes!
- Our title character is mentioned briefly for the first time, and it seems like we are finally going to do something other than sit at home and complain :D
