Re: solo [english] The Well of Loneliness by Radcylffe Hall - vik

Chapter 4 is spot PL OK.

Sometimes trying to stick to contracted hours is harder than it sounds, and certainly harder than it should be. Well done for trying not to exceed your hours.

Keep safe in the bad weather!

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

Excellent, section 30 is spot PL OK. Two notes for section 27: 1.42, p 341 last full para, omission [The frescoing drew no criticism,] but the stained glass windows! 2.30-2.39, p 342 first para They took him away quickly, rode to Summit Street [heard House] and presented him to some rather awe-stric...

Re: solo [english] The Well of Loneliness by Radcylffe Hall - vik

I had assumed you might have to keep going through the shift, but if you're able to sleep that's something. But yes, it is a long time to be away. I'm in no position to cast stones about French! There are some truly awful instances in some of my early recordings before I knew about tools like Forvo....

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

Sections 16, 22, 23 and 26 are spot PL OK, and section 28 and 29 tags are okay. I'll listen to section 27 soon.

I'm getting the same url in section 30 (MW and thread) as for section 27 - could you please double check it? I think I can't see it properly anymore after staring at it.

Re: solo [english] The Well of Loneliness by Radcylffe Hall - vik

Chapter 5 is PL OK. One note for chapter 6 - it's in the French bit (sorry!), but a bit of English was dropped! 2.23, omission 'Mais quel type, [quel type!' she was always exclaiming.] 'Vous êtes déjà une vraie petite Amazone, Stévenne.' All of the French governess's sentences are *exactly* the type...

Two notes for section 30:

Section 29 is PL OK; as with the previous section, just adjust the part numbers in the MW.

Section 28 is PL OK. The MW and tags say it spans parts 1-5 but it covers parts 1-6 (and the following section 7-12). I've not altered the MW, but that's the only comment for this section.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Please don't apologise. It's a wonder that anything is being recorded right now as so many places lurch from one lockdown to the next, so it's a bonus when you do upload a section. It's nice to hear your voice again. Two notes for section 30: 17.39-17.43 as other seasons [heard scenes] made them bal...

Re: solo [english] The Well of Loneliness by Radcylffe Hall - vik

Two notes for chapter 4 are below, according to PL-plus. I'm not sure I'd say I'm deeply familiar with the novel. I have read it, though not recently! And PLing is a whole other kettle of fish to recording. When I record I re-read, prep the text and generally take an age to get ready. :lol: With PLi...

Brilliant, I'll get on to these soon.

One (quick fix) note for section 26: the end silence is down to three seconds. Could you please bump it up a tad?

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

You're multitalented!

If it's okay, I'd kind of like to use an image of Olivia Shakespear. There aren't very many images of her (not like Yeats!), but I really like the first one on her Wikipedia page, the one in profile:

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

That's okay. At least you caught it now, rather than after you'd done several more, later, sections that would have needed new intro/outros and tags. Section 24 1.31-1.36, p 304 penultimate para of first section, false start “Yes- *snap* *snap* “Yes, it is so everywhere,” Oscar... 4.07, p 305 first ...

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

That looks great! Thank you!

A cover image would be really nice, if you are able to create one. If not, I will put out a call on LV and see if there is any interest. BCing projects is fine, but I'm really not a good cover artist!

Re: solo [english] The Well of Loneliness by Radcylffe Hall - vik

The notes for chapter 2 below fall under the heading of 'things I noticed because I was reading along'. Do with them what you will! You're off to a strong start. It usually takes me an age to record as much as you've managed in a week, so well done! 16.39-16.42 ...but now she no longer wondered. [he...
