Great! Here we are. The window is up. I have made changes in the first post only in the title, to add that it is a collaborative, genre and name of author.

Also, as BC, you might want to decide if you wish your readers to say Section or Chapter at the beginning and end of files, for the sake of consistency - in the template itis "Section or Chapter". To edit your first post, click on the pencil icon on the top right. :)

Since Scarbo had offered to continue with the PL job, I think we are set. You can access the window as you would normally do on your solo, but let me know if you have any difficulties with that!

Hey Leni, One thing: I had entered that it would be 37 sections. Each chapter is between 9 and 12 thousand words. So, I thought I would break it into average sections of 2 -3 thousand words. If this is acceptable will you add sections to the MW?

No need to send us, no. :) As soon as the window is ready, I will move the project to the Readers Wanted forum.

Thank you. I have put you in the MW for those sections. Welcome to beginning or continuing our enjoyment of the writing of George Sand!

Section 2 sounds great! I have one note: at 0:24, "My fair client," you say "My client."

Also, I'm not sure whether the BC has a preference about this, but you say "Section 2" instead of "Chapter 1, part 2" at the beginning and at 0:21. I'll defer to brownrottger though as to whether that's something that she would want to change.

Section # is what is desired at the beginning and end of each recording, as is indicated in the instructions above. Thanks for checking! I should have Section 1 ready for PL by the end of this weekend.
