How To Narrate a Book in 4 Days…


I finished up my other projects this morning and I went to Kinko’s to print out the book I’m narrating, (rather using all our ink- with big projects- kinko’s is a good option) Cost me $23 to prink off 208 pages (I will use the other side of them when I am done.)

Some things I am thinking about before I get in the sound booth to record this book:
-understand the content
-speak slower than I think I need to
-keep in mind the audience
-it’s a daunting task- but just get in there and start
-relax..did I say that already? lol

Neat tip I snagged from
“Don’t let punctuation dictate all that your voice must do. Use inflection to colour words well in order to authentically express what the author has in mind.”

Alright, I am feeling a bit better;) I know I can do it. It’s about 150 pages, so I will try to read 50 pages per day and then on Sunday- finish up the editing. It will be a lot of work, but it is also comforting earning rent and bills in 4 days!

Here are a few pictures of the last of my Yellowknife trip. Our last night in the NWT’s we went to a popular fish and chips place called Bullocks Bistro..

Really pretty view
I think this was right after Mike and I asked Marianne and Craig to be our MC’s for our wedding! Woo Hoo!

They said YEP!

And lastly, I capped the evening off by leaving my mark in the Great White North

It was a glorious event.
Now for the next 4 days it will just be pictures of me in the sound booth, flipping pages.. exciting! haha… But please come back- I’m sure I’ll find something fun to say…..

Have an exceptionally wonderful rest of your day! You ROCK!

    I’m glad you liked my cold hometown! I moved away to Saskatoon and ended up coming back, I missed the Northern charm!
    Have a safe flight home!
