Reading out loud

  1. Andrea, I accepted my B.A. in theater arts in that very room. Tony was a professor of mine, and I too have great respect for him. Thanks for the jog down memory lane. You describe that room and Tony to perfection.

  2. Congratulations, Andrea! What a great resource you have in Dr. Distler to coach you up. I wish I could have been there. Do you think he meant it needs editing, or just edit if you think it needs it? Just as when you hear your recorded voice for the first time, “I don’t sound like that!” you may have been too self-critical. Obviously, I haven’t heard you read it, but IMHO please get a second opinion before you do any editing to your wonderful piece. To me the only word for marsh is marsh, not swamp or bog, or salina or fen. Or moor. Or whatever inlanders think a salt marsh is. One’s reading pace is different compared to hearing pace, I think.

    1. Thanks Dad 🙂 He meant just edit if I think it needs it – he had no criticisms. All the criticisms here were what was running through my head. I just read it out loud again a couple of times at home, and I didn’t notice the repetition of marsh as much. I did hit my 10 minutes with a page still to go, so I’m not sure yet what to do about that. I’ll ask my friend tomorrow, who read last year.
