2016-05-25 (W) Charged: DesertIrish

Two chapters has been a good pace and when the chapter were short it was easy to record them in a night. The last two chapters, 36 and 37, were not short chapters, they were average length for this book. Each chapter was over seven minutes long once recorded. It takes roughly three times longer to record and edit simultaneously than the finished product so fifteen minutes of finished audio takes approximately 45 minutes. That 45 minutes is not like lounging in a comfortable chair browsing 9gag. Most of the time I’m carefully controlling my breathing and deliberately speaking with all the emotion I can muster. Plus switching from one character’s voice to another takes a whole new level of concentration.

I hope I don’t come off as complaining, I’m not. Recording is rewarding because it is challenging and I’m happy with the result. Someday soon it might be fun to play the first chapter immediately after recording and reviewing a later chapter to try to detect all the things which have improved and still need improvement.

 Charged

To do:
  • Show how Shana knew Motor and Heather were a new couple.
  • Describe a reality TV show which demonstrates the powers of contestants.
  • Describe a civil trial where a Charged person sues for the right to have a second identity but the case turns against him into a vilification of vigilantism.

2016-05-24 (Tu) Charged: DesertIrish

Two chapters were recorded, chapters 34 and 35. Recording continues to improve and a groove has been found so hopefully it will be possible to step up to three chapters per day.

Currently the extra time each day has been used for other activities including the other voice project hinted at in previous blog posts and G+ posts. This project involves different technique and work since a second person is being recorded simultaneously. All the program familiarity and experience is paying off.

Please enjoy the latest chapters, soon the gears will shift to a new project.

2016-05-23 (M) Charged: DesertIrish

Another pair of short chapters was recorded. Chapters 32 and 33.

One problem while recording is loud keypresses. Standard keyboards are quiet compared to mechanical keyboards. Mechanical keyboards are usually used by gamers and high-traffic business computers which see a lot of abuse. Despite the relative quiet they can still be heard while recording. The easiest solution was a silicone keyboard, usually sold as waterproof or roll-up keyboards. They pretty inexpensive but difficult for typing because they don’t feel like a regular keyboard. The obvious advantage here is that they don’t use rigid plastic hinges for movement, just the flexing of a thin silicone sheet.

Desk space in the recording area has been limited and the height is uncomfortable for extended periods where it was necessary to resting hands on the keyboard and mouse area. A couple options are available if an upgrade happens. It’s possible to buy an adjustable keyboard platform but it must be very solid since some have cheap drawer slides which would be noisy. Another option is to build a cheaper version with angle iron and hinges which can be tightened quickly. The third option is to build another lower shelf.

2016-05-22 (Su) Charged: DesertIrish

Two more short chapters were recorded. Chapters 30 and 31 were recorded in another single session which took as long as some of the earlier chapters.

Equipment has been continuously upgraded. The microphone was switched at the end of one chapter without mentioning it in the book or the blog. Differences were so minor that it didn’t seem important. Sound insulation was added which may also be undetectable.

 Charged

To do:
  • Show how Shana knew Motor and Heather were a new couple.
  • Describe a reality TV show which demonstrates the powers of contestants.
  • Describe a civil trial where a Charged person sues for the right to have a second identity but the case turns against him into a vilification of vigilantism.

2016-05-21 (Sa) Charged: DesertIrish

Recent chapters have been short. Instead of recording three short chapters in a single day some chapters have been combined but sometime it only made sense to keep a chapter break even if the recording was a couple minutes long.

Chapters 28 and 29 were recorded. They were less than ten minutes each. A large percent of recording time has been setting up, launching programs and getting situated. Most recording sessions go until it becomes uncomfortable or ability falters.

 Charged

To do:
  • Show how Shana knew Motor and Heather were a new couple.
  • Describe a reality TV show which demonstrates the powers of contestants.
  • Describe a civil trial where a Charged person sues for the right to have a second identity but the case turns against him into a vilification of vigilantism.

2016-05-20 (F) Weekly Summary

A minimum of one chapter per day has been recorded. At this point in the text, chapter breaks were included. When they were written the chapters were short and often followed the end of a scene or change of location. Sometime this simply wasn’t long enough to justify a chapter so chapters have been combined. On Thursday two short chapters were recorded since the break made sense.

I haven’t kept a traffic monitor on the audio files to see if anyone is downloading. Part of me is worried that people don’t care about this story and part of me doesn’t really care because I’m having fun recording it. In fact, I still have plans to RErecord the whole thing. Hopefully that will be done over a weekend so it doesn’t take too much time away from the regular flow of this blog. That’s a problem for Future-Me, not Today-Me.

Since twenty nine chapters have been recorded I have expanded my experience with voice acting. I’ve gone from zero to novice. When I listen to audio books I hear so many things I like and I want to make my own recording that good. Other actors contort their voices to sound different for each character and I try but I’ve actually been rewriting the book so it becomes more obvious who is speaking. This helped the audio book and I think it helps to literary book too. A couple times I have caught myself reading lines in the wrong voice because I wasn’t clear who was supposed to be speaking…AND I WROTE IT. That tells me there’s a problem so it was clarified. On Monday I reviewed the first part with my girlfriend and I heard many more things that I didn’t like. I’m glad my experience has shown me some things that I know I can improve.

Last Saturday I gave some tips for recording in a make-shift recording space and I’d like to share the most important one in case you didn’t read the full article. Don’t fart in the recording space, it’s a small sealed room and you’ll regret it. That is all.

The shear length of this story has made me reconsider how to classify it. When I started it was my goal to write a novel. I even started it during November for NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. I think the usual problem with people who start a novel is that they give up before reaching the 50 000 words necessary to be considered a novel or they cannot fill that many pages. I had the opposite problem, this story has gone over 170 000 words. At this point I think it’s better to simply call this a serial story. Whatever it’s called, I don’t want to stop telling it.

Here’s a cute fact I didn’t share before, the characters who fought Liz’s zombies in the first part of the book were a roleplay group in a campaign I created to play in this world. Their actions and mannerisms were all copied from the characters they played. Only Beth and Joules were NPCs. This is hardly a new technique but I had a lot of fun writing them into a story and it made for a cast with widely different personalities.

2016-05-19 (Th) Firefly Tattoo COMPLETED

I am particular about my body mods. No tattoo on my body is about the past, they are all about who I AM or who I hope to BECOME, they are about the present or future. My chest has two symbols which I use to identify myself and my ribcage has the ISBN code for two books I self-published. The goal is to tattoo all the ISBN codes for works published by me so it’s an incomplete list until I die.
Enough background.
----------

My implants (one, two , three, four) have all been functional. The magnets allow me to sense strong magnetic fields and the RFID implants allow me to access computers. Those are currently the pinnacle of voluntary functional body mods. My most recent implant is not so much functional as it is just too darn cool. I have what the creator calls a Firefly tattoo. Read this before you worry about the toxicity.

This mod isn’t functional except for finding my hand in the dark. It is purely cosmetic but also exciting because I’m one of the first 100 people to get this upgrade.

If you’ve read some of my other implantation stories I have a nasty habit of passing out. Last time this wasn’t the case so I was hoping my bad streak was over. Nope. The needle stick wasn’t bad. I got it in the middle of my right hand, to avoid bones and large veins, and it went in cleanly. Of course I went to my usual piercer, Shane, in Saint Cloud. Once the implant was in Shane moved it around a little bit and feeling the implant move under my skin is what made me pass out. Apparently my eyes stay wide open when I pass out. Unfortunately no one was recording when that happened because I was as white as a sheet. Once I woke up things were fine. Shane said the whole was a little on the large side so he added a single suture.

Shane and his assistant watched me until he gauged that I was ready to move. Finally we went to the bathroom so he could see his work glowing under the skin. We both thought it was pretty cool. After that I was pretty hungry so I took my girlfriend out for Indian food and I was ravenous. It was quite a day.

Installation video. A little harder to insert than the last one

The morning after. No regrets
