Last year, the great people at scissors and spackle published my short story MegaCool. I just finished recording it and you can compare the written and verbal versions. A big thank you to the Don LaFontaine Voice Over Lab. I rejoined SAG-AFTRA and the Lab has been a fun place to experiment, to practice narration for audiobooks, voiceover for commercials, promos, etc. and now I’m starting to play around with animation. I’ve learned a lot about my writing not only by reading it aloud, but recording it. If you aren’t reading your work aloud, start! It’s worth recording as well, even if it’s on your smart phone or computer. You will hear things in the text that you may have overlooked in print. Here’s the audio version of MegaCool.
