What's up folks? Once again I'm posting this a few hours before Tuesday is due to hit for me, but I expect that will be the standard, because a girl needs to sleep, right? Check in here whenever you're ready.

Have you made any progress since you checked in for Day 2? Or, if you missed the Day 2 check in, since you signed up? Are you feeling okay about that progress? Is there anything your fellow GSDers can do to help you along?

Thank you to everyone for yesterday's encouraging comments!

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: I managed to find the file for a short fic I'd recorded a couple of weeks ago! I did my first editing pass, plus I got rid of a couple of obvious mouth noises. I'm also pleased with myself for editing instead of working on cover art. Totally counting this as an accomplishment. :D

What challenges are you currently facing?: I should start naming/organising my files right after I record instead of waiting until I get around to editing! I did eventually find the file I was looking for, but I could have made it easier for myself.

At some point I need to look into how to create and add an edit to the original file. Does anyone have any links saved re: this? Or any tips? I am okay for now, though, having come to terms (I hope) with the one mispronunciation-in-context in my current project.

What do you mean by editing the original file? Do you mean you want to replace a word? (Also, do you use audacity?)

Three cheers for organization! *\o/* *\o/* *\o/*

Trying to fix things after the fact is the WORST. I don't know any ways other than cannibalizing stuff from somewhere else in the recording (if it's a common word and you say it somewhere else). Or trying to do a re-record and hoping the sound comes out roughly the same (why is it always so different!??!). If you figure out something ingenious, let me know!

So far I used Auphonic on my first chapter and figured out what I meant in my notes about using that song by by "whosit, whatist, and whosit." The latter took a while and then I went through far too many versions of "Brown Eyed Handsome Man," trying to find the most appropriate. (The piece has flashbacks so I like to use two songs to help distinguish past from present.)

Auphonic is my new favorite toy EVER. And I'm impressed that you can even read your notes. Mine always look like chicken scratches and I just throw them out in despair, so GO YOU! *\o/*

I made my podficcing laptop usable again by heroically soldering the broken power cable together! And I went through old stack of printouts and concluded that I only want to record one of the candidates right now.

Your soldering job sounds pretty hardcore. I'm impressed. (Okay, I soldered stuff in high school. But never anything that actually mattered.)

Yesterday I accomplished: nothing /o\ Mondays are always tough for me, so what I actually accomplished was getting through the day.

But I'm really hoping to do something this evening. *puts on determined face*

Hey you got through a Monday! That's always something to celebrate (the getting through, not that it's a Monday. Mondays suck)

Good luck getting something done!

I recorded ~11.5K. I only have 6K to go but I was really hungry and went to make dinner and never went back to the mic.

(It was a giant pot of delicious chili that I'll be eating for a week. The pros and cons of living alone and cooking for one when you're too lazy to cook tiny portions everyday: you get to cook once in a while but then you have to eat one thing (with bread/rice/pasta) for a while).

What have you accomplished since yesterday?:

Recorded, edited, made cover art for, and posted Let me be your canvas.

Current wordcount: 17063/30000

What challenges are you currently facing?: I've had a headache for a few days now, and it's starting to wear on me. Also my brother will be home (he lives in my basement) tomorrow afternoon so I might not be able to record again until Thursday.

What have you accomplished since yesterday?: I got my script together on Monday - the original fic has no dialogue tags and is ALL dialogue so I had to do some creative highlighting so I could get my inflections right and wouldn't get lost. Today, I checked the soundproofing on my walk-in closet where I record (it has the best acoustics/privacy) and figured out that I can actually manage to record with other people in the house and not be heard! So I recorded the entire ~1.5K fic I wanted to record in under an hour before going to bed for the night. (I checked the soundproofing by putting my laptop in my closet as loud as it would go, closing the door, and walking out into the hallway! Haha.)
What challenges are you currently facing?: My computer crashed immediately after my first run through and I lost the entire file! I'll save constantly from now on.... But, like I said, I managed to re-record before going to bed and it's probably better after a "practice" run. Also, I have a bad headache. :/ I wanted to get started editing today but staring at a screen after work has proved to be way too much for me to handle. Also, so many mouth noises to edit out. :p

I feel like I record so slow! Some of you guys are really getting stuff done!

Wow, good job everyone!

I uploaded two podfic to the Archive... I think. I got kicked out and haven't been able to get connected again to check on the 2nd one :-P

Also, have made a list of what I'll specifically be reccing on [community profile] podfic_love, including the links and some notes.

About

Each month the community will host a GSD Week:

Day 1: Participants will declare their podfic-related goal for the week. This goal may include recording, editing, designing cover art, archiving, posting, organizing challenges, or anything else related to podfic fandom.

Day 2-6: Participants will (optionally) check in daily with a report of their progress. This is a good opportunity to share snippets of works in progress.

Day 7: Participants will declare their total progress for the week and determine whether or not they've met their personal goal.

Everyone is welcome to drop by and encourage participants in their endeavors. ♥
