Just to let you know, I have upto chapter 20 recorded, and I will tend to the rest soon.

Also, let me know if I need to speak clearer; my accent is not always easy to understand :lol:
:shock: :lol: Thanks for these, Bhavya! I'll listen soon...I've just got swamped with real-life work and have been VERY busy.
For the most part, your accent is completely clear and understandable; it's just rare occasions that some words are a little hard to understand. But you don't need to change anything- the way you're reading now is beautiful! I love listening to you read :wink:

It's fine...I don't think there is a policy on recording in order, it just might be helpful to the BC/DPL (Elijah and me, in this case). But it's definitely not mandatory. :wink:

Hello again Bhavya!

I have some free time now, so I will PL these sections. The chapter 12 you uploaded does have a slight irregularity in the filename, as opposed to the other four, but we can standardize at the cataloguing process so that's no worries.

Also, just realized...you have up to chapter 20 RECORDED?! That's crazy! (But also really awesome!) Thanks, can't wait to PL!

Thank you Bhavya!

Rachel

Chapter 12 is PL OK!

Lovely job! Definitely PL OK- your reading was clear and wonderfully read, and the background noise was at a minimum. (That's hard, I know, because I've heard all the noise before- cars, doors, honking: you must live in a busy area!)

I'm fairly good at untangling string/yarn. The trick is to follow the string itself, and unless there are knots in the yarn, you'll eventually have it untangled in no time. I have had a bit of practice, though, because I knit or crochet occasionally and my ball of yarn, no matter how neatly it is wound, always gets in a big tangle before the end.

Hi Bhavya!

You know what I'm going to say, as usual, though absolutely true- you have done a near-flawless job of reading Narrator 10, and you are an absolute wordsmith- I just do not know how you can read so beautifully! The fluency of the words run together amazingly, and they come across as very natural and like you are eager to share a wonderful story with a loved one. I actually think that no one else would be as good for narrating this particular story. I only have two minor PL notes:

2:49-51-- quick pressuring noise, kind of like the type you hear in video games (you know, the wind rushing by the game avatar) but I think it is more likely to be a car rushing by

3:30- short but unnatural pause

That's it. Near-perfect job, as usual, and I thoroughly enjoyed PLing.

Thanks!

Rachel

Hi Bhavya,

I was just fascinated by the gorgeous quality of reading in this chapter! Oh my goodness, I could picture every character, every event, as clear as day. And it's not just the words that do that-- it's the storyteller that makes it come alive. When you read the part about Irene and the moonlight, I imagined what the courtyard at night might look like. I imagined ivy curling down from the walls, the green grass sparkling with dew, and the moonlight washing Irene's face with its pale white light.

If I imagined that, knowing the story quite well already, what will the listeners imagine? That's the mark of fantastic storytelling.

So, to get straight to the point-- DEFINITELY, without a doubt, PL OK.

There were two Chapters you PL'ed. So the first post you made, were PL notes for Chapter 11, and the second post was saying Chapter 12 is PL OK... is this correct?

Umm...I'm a little confused. I marked both 11 and 12 as PL OK in the MW and on the thread. Did I post PL notes for 11?

For those two posts. The first post was for chapter __? and the second post was for chapter __?

Oh, I get it. The first one was for Narrator 10- I actually said that in the post but I guess I didn't make it stand out enough.

And the second one, as I noted right now, was for Narrator 11.

Elijah,
Can you please note in the MW which chapters are ready to edit? That way I'll know instantly, without having to dig around in the script for which characters are in the scene, and the status of those characters for the particular chapter.
I'll start on chapter 1 (I believe I'm assigned chapter 1, but I'll double-check), though.
Thank you!

EDIT: I noticed you did put chapter 1 as ready to edit, but if I'm correct a few other chapters are also ready to edit. Could you please update that, if needed? Thanks.
