Hi Sylvia! Chapter 18 is assigned to another reader. Unless you meant 16?

Oh, my gosh! What a giant waste of time because I didn't pay close enough attention. My 18 is in the ether. Yikes!

Well, I'm so glad that you're a well-coordinated coordinator. Thanks.

Back to 11 I go.

Awww, I'm sorry for this waste of time but let's think of it this way; you got to read a chapter in the life of Robin you might not have otherwise! And I hope you had fun doing it! :thumbs:

Let's try chapter 16 then.

Time 18:58

My character accents leave much to be desired (especially French), but at least they sound different from one another.

You mentioned when I woofed on chapter 18 that I got to read a chapter that I might not have otherwise read; but that's nearly impossible for me. I'm too curious of a cat. I have to read the whole thing to find out what happens no matter what chapters I'm assigned.

Thank you for your beautifully read chapter, Sylvia!
I think the subtle accents work great! :clap:
PL OK!

I suspected that might be the case, but I wanted to say something positive; feeling that something was a waste of time is not a pleasant feeling...

I've been jumping around avoiding Ch 11 for a while 'cause it has 9 voices and a plenty of dialogue. Had to give that a lot of thought and finally gave it my best shot.

Here it goes!

Here's ch 12.

I screwed up the audacity wave file (aka erased) before I remembered to write down the time, so I don't have a time/length to give you.

At least I created the mp3 export file before "disappearing" the audacity file, and so I can thankfully upload without recording 12 all over again

My oldest son is way better at computer things than me, so I just had him come in and give me a tutorial in how to save and exit in the audacity software that saves wave files in "projects". I've been misunderstanding that concept since forever. With his tips/help I should stop loosing files in the future. That's a good thing!
