The Eight Thousand Word Wall, by The Eight Thousand Word Wall
We missed recording the audiobook last week. My nose ran and I felt a cold coming on and I feared that if I sleep deprived myself like I do for a normal recording session, my voice would not just be shot, but I’d get fully sick and I’d miss multiple weeks. So this week I […]
