Words and Voices

A couple months back I voiced a short story for Comets and Criminals and K. G. Jewell — “The Toys of War”.  I guess I did okay. I get to do another one in June.

More on that as it occurs.  I enjoy doing voice work. In part because it takes me back to radio days.  My first radio gig was midnights at an AC station in West Texas.  But more than that, reading the words aloud, mine or someone else’s, lets me feel the flow of the story, the color of the language.  It’s something I do for both writing and editing.

For example, if it feels like an info dump, reading it aloud tells me for sure.  It also shows me where the breaks fall naturally, so where I can fix it naturally.
