Jack and The Fountain of Youth — Audio Installment 96
Read along with us!
Below is the text version of the audio.
(Show notes are beneath the text.)
“The identity of the tipster does not matter.” Jack stroked her arms. “Once we found the Fountain, I stopped thinking about the Pryer. The paper was no longer important.”
“No?” She almost didn’t recognize her own voice.
“No.” Jack pulled her closer. “All I can think of is you. You and the life I want to make with you. The life I hope you want too.”
She didn’t trust herself to speak, so she just nodded.
We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.
Recording. We recorded this segment in one take, after two practice runs with the microphone off.
Technical. We are working on keeping our voice on an up note at the end of sentences. Can be difficult when sentences are long and breath is short. 🙂
Comments. We’re thinking of speeding up the pace of the audio installments. These latest installments are much better than the first ones, and we think we’re almost ready to record the entire book and release the audio and the updated text at the same time.
Story changes. Several changes to the written version this week. Removed a few “it” words to clarify what Jack was talking about.
