If you need any help, just ask, I said. I'd love to learn more, I said.
Sure thing, they said. Hey, we have this story and you'd be terrific, they said.
Sure thing, I said.
Me and my big mouth.
Since then, I've graduated from recording on my phone to fiddling with Audacity, a free audio program on the web. I'm far from perfect (we're talking continental divide here, folks), but I've enjoyed the learning curve far more than I thought I would. For the record, I blame the good folks at the Cast of Wonders podcast for infecting me with this bug. Go listen to a few of their episodes. Better yet, become a supporter on the Escape Artists, Inc. Patreon page and support all of the great EA podcasts.
I'll never be a voice actress, I may never be asked to record anything again, but for now here is a bit of my recent Audacity tinkering. I can't vouch for the quality of the singing or the recording, but it was fun and this is one of my favorite bits of original filk. May take a moment to load. I might record another one. Who knows?
