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 stumbled across earlier posts via janni, and then read a bunch. I also read the post about friend vs. fan in the outer nets, and agreed with pretty much everything you said and decided I would not like to miss more of it than I already have :)

Heh. I'm not usually so provoking. Or, at least, I hope not!
