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.

I hate my recorded voice, I sound exactly like a cousin of mine that I have never got along with and I always want to rush through any scenes that include me. I would worry that this was what I really sound like to others but then my father's recorded voice always sounds much older then his actual age.
