I have spent the last two days trying, off and on, to record myself reading, because I had this totally stupid idea that I would make an .mp3 of it and put it on my web-site.

What I have discovered--or rediscovered as the case may be--is that I cannot stand the sound of my recorded voice. I've tried reading first chapters and the beginnings of short stories, and all I can say is I have profound gratitude for the people who like my writing--or me--enough to sit through an hour of me reading out loud.

And now, writing looks like it will be so much less of a disaster, and holding that thought, I'm going to write.

If my wife has called the house and left a voicemail, she will practically run from the room if she hears herself over the playback. I honestly have no problems at all listening to my own voice, but boy, does she.

omg, I used to do this! or I'd just hit delete, since if it was me leaving the message and I was in the same room, it meant the message was no longer necessary.
