Today is Tuesday and my four day weekly break has begun. I will be heading down to Lebanon shortly. Happily, most of the traffic will be heading into Harrisburg, rather than away from it. That's fine with me.
Yesterday we had rain. Lots of rain. Almost one full inch fell over the region so things are going to start greening up. I'm excited. I didn't hear one person complaining.
And while business at the store was slow, I did manage to get 3 measures. Management was happy. I didn't sell anything else, however, which meant for a long, boring day. I couldn't wait to leave.
Of course, when I did get home, it wasn't as though I had enough time to sit and play a video game. All of the audio chapters for The Body Under Ice have been uploaded. I've been taking lots of notes on things that need to be changed. Like how long the break for a comma, or for a period. Words that get pronounced oddly, or skipped. Chapters are not recorded in one sitting, but are actually recorded in bits and pieces which are then stitched together to make a whole. About 3 times that stitching is a bit rough and will need to be smoothed out. All of the song lyrics that I included in the book are being removed. They just don't work in an audiobook. In fact, this has been a great learning experience. I now know how much prep work needs to go into a manuscript before it gets recorded. Here are some of my notes.
