I would be willing to tackle Clinton Ward, if it would work for the project (66-67; sections 3 and 9)?

Hello.

I've never done a dramatic reading or play before, but can I give it a try with the parts of Mrs. Serviss in section 88 and Great Aunt Dosia in section 91?

One question... Great Aunt Dosia's dialogue says "Kit" instead of "Kate". Looks like a minor typo. Should it be read as "Kate"?


Thanks.

- Jennifer Wilson

My character does the same thing. I believe that it is a nickname.

Yes, as deLorinel says, this is a nickname and should be read as "Kit." And I am assigning these roles to you now, thanks!

And thank you to everyone for bearing with me lately. I'm sorry I haven't been as present here as I'd like. Lately, it seems like I don't have as much energy left for LV when I get home from work in the evenings. :?

I believe the MW is all up to date now, but if I've missed something, please let me know!

Here is chapter 1 for the narrator

Thank you, Michele, this is well done! I know that our characters' voices are sure to play well off of yours. :9: I do have a couple of notes on this section, mostly optional. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing the next one! :D

12:44 OPTIONAL pronunciation note. The line here (p. 5 of the script) is, "...every minute modelling of his face..." I think that "minute" here should be pronounced as its adjective form, my-nyoot, rather than the noun, min-it.
13:20 OPTIONAL It sounds as it the first part of this sentence was cut off a bit. Not near enough to make it confusing or unintelligible. Just enough to sound a bit jarring. "The golden eagle of cloud..."
22:10 This one is a pronunciation note that I definitely would like addressed, please. Page 7 of the script: "...purple buttes of the plain..." This word is pronounced "byoots."
This is now edited and reuploaded new time is 32:11 thanks
I'm terribly sorry, Michele. I see now that I was unclear in my notes. You corrected the two optional spots perfectly. And I can see how you would understand my phonetic spelling of buttes as two syllables. But it is only one syllable, like the first syllable in the word "beautiful." Would you mind giving it one more go?
