So, just for the heck of it, I decided to try and record myself reading Eikasia. This particular excerpt is from the beginning of Chapter 8.2[audio:http://eighthcirclestudios.com/ns/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/Chapter8_2-Take4.mp3%5D
That was my fourth saved attempt at reading that portion aloud. (You don’t wanna know how many times I had to start over. At one point I combined ‘quiet’ and ‘twilight’ to say ‘qwilight’.) Tell me what you guys think. Do I speak clearly? Is the quality of the file good? Did you have any other problems?
I think I’m going to try and get a podcast going. It’ll give me the opportunity to improve my speech skills. Anyone want to give me tips on how to get started?
EDIT: Oh yeah, the last few lines are different from what I originally wrote. It sounded better to me when I was saying it.
