PL notes for Narrator Chapter 20:

- Plosive @ 0:57: "and Jack gave himself a sounding slap on the chest,"
- Plosive @ 15:27: "said Jill, softly, her quick little mind all alive with new thoughts and feelings."

These are not at all something that you are required to re-read -- they're not very loud --, but everything else is so perfect, I thought you might want to know just in case! :)
Yes, I do - thanks for telling me!

Ahhh! That didn't exactly happen. I was having some computer issues today, unfortunately :( I guess it will be first thing in the morning.

Chapter 1 is PL OK!

This is probably my favorite dramatic piece I have ever listened too! Everyone was in character so well, and it was just with such incredible passion. Great job everyone!

There was one line where Jill was saying after the accident "If I'd broken every bone I've got, it would serve me right. Don't help me, anybody; I'm a wicked thing, and I deserve to lie here and freeze and starve and die!” This was done soooo excellent, and I happened to laugh at the very enthusiastic drama involved. This was great. Our narrator also was very good at putting emphasis on certain words that would set up the next line. Honestly, it was like everyone was on the same page. Awesome job everyone, especially all those minor roles! You guys did great too! Definitely looking forward to chapter 2 :D

PL notes for Chapter 4:

The only notes I have are that Jill's dialogue seemed a little quiet to me, especially at 6:10, 7:43, 15:04, and 17:25, and maybe just a tiny bit too quiet at 10:43, 13:17, and 14:12.

I'm probably only saying this between I recently listened to another dramatic work from the LV catalog, and one or some of the characters' dialogue was too quiet in my opinion -- which was a little disruptive to the story. So I hope I'm not being too nitpicky.

Thanks for letting me know. No, that's not too nitpicky. I do have mild hearing sensitivity. Usually this doesn't impact me much, but sometimes young voices (especially higher ones) can sound loud to me. In the future I'll make sure to put Jill's lines a bit louder than sounds right to me. How's this?
