Once upon a time James Wymore was tied to a table by his wrists and ankles while a group of hooded figures chanted dark, arcane utterances while fell incense hung in the air. I don’t have a point with this one, I’m just describing his typical Tuesday night.
It’ll be a quick one this week, I think. We’re progressing apace on the audiobook from. I think we’ve done four or five sessions now, and I’m at another recording as this posts.
I’m coming to the conclusion that my voice can’t handle more than a hour or so of real recording. That wouldn’t be enough to do this professionally, but it gets the job done for me. If we get started about noon, I can really start feeling the strain around one. I might need to figure something out about that if we do another of these with a tighter timeline.
I don’t know if that just gets better with practice or if I’m using my voice wrong.
Last week’s was rough, but we’re getting through. I average a lot of errors per page at the beginning and end of a session, but in the middle, I can get close two a page.
I’m more than a third of the way through the book at this point. If today is a really good recording session, I’ll come close to half. Practically, I’ll probably hit the halfway point next week.
We’ve recorded the screamiest scene, which the producer says will be the hardest edit of the book. Other than that, we’re just plodding slowly towards our goal.
Talk to you next week. TTFN.
