Not being too scattered this year. Heck, it's only day 3. It stands to reason I will be scattered one day soon but for now I am, thankfully, focused and looking into new kinds of work. One of those is narrating audio books. I need to find out what sort of equipment one needs to do this and record a sample to send places. It is a cut-throat business -- more so than the regular publishing but with print books and newsprint on the decline, it may be the only avenue. I always loved listening to Boris Karloff read the "Reluctant Dragon" when I was young. I began reading for audiences 'way back in high school but got more interested in it when my kids were born. And I got hooked on reading out loud after I heard the first audio tapes of children's stories back in the 1990s. Wondrous stuff. Truly made an impression on my reading style.
My current victims--ahem--listeners, are my cats. They get pretty cranky some nights and reading really mellows them out. So I will explore this and find out more. Stay tuned. Or as the radio announcer used to say on Laugh In...oh heck, what was it he used to say? I will report on that later.
