Homework for Monday, April 19th, 2010

OK, let’s see if I can remember what I told you! Yes, it was about audio books. Pick a novel (fiction) with a narrator (either 3rd person or 1st person) and at least a couple of characters exchanging dialogue. Start your recorder and read for as long as you can. Mistakes, stops, starts, restarts – that’s OK. Just read for as long as you can do it. Then play back what you have done – at least the first part and the last part to see how your energy kept up. Listen for mistakes, words dropped. Words added. Hesitations. Character differences. Analyze what you have done.

Your written assignment is to tell me about this experience. Did you like it? Was it easier or harder than some of the other assignments? Do you think you can record for several days at a time?

And please have your IVR grid ready to turn in.
