Hi Henrietta Strauss! I'd love to MC for you, I see it's been met with enthusiasm in the DR suggestions thread.

But before we start, please read the Good Practice Guidelines: viewtopic.php?t=44647

Check list:
- Prepare Scrips and characters' list/description
- Line-up an editor, or commit to edit yourself
- Line-up a narrator, or commit to narrate yourself
- Line-up a parts proof-listener, or commit to part PL yourself
(a DPL for the final files can be found later, as the final files may take too long)

I presume you've read through the advice Victoria got when setting up A Fourth Form Friendship viewtopic.php?t=98282 Very good advice!

Like a story that we wish was never ending, we know sometime we must reach the final page. Still we carry on just pretending that there'll always be one more book to go. - Fading Lights, Genesis

I'd love to help. :thumbs: And while I'm at it, perhaps untangle some more of the script work??? :hmm: What do you say to that?

Thanks,
