Narrating Stories

From time to time, I narrate fantasy stories for PodCastle. My latest recording just went up as part of their Flash Fiction Extravaganza - a beautiful short story called 'Gaps of Joy and a Knot for Love' by S.B. Divya.

I also read Charlotte Ashley's 'La Heron' in August and Setsu Uzume's 'For Honor, For Waste' back in April, both of which were quite a lot of fun to read.

It's been fun connecting with the authors of each story and hearing what they have to say about how I've interpreted their work. It's quite a responsibility, but it's also a lot of fun to interact with these stories in a way that I don't often get to do with prose. And in the confines of my own space, with no one watching, I find I slip into the voices of the different characters without much self-consciousness. 

I've also learnt a bit about recording and editing audio so now I'm thinking of different ways I can use those skills to produce my own work. One of these years, I may even get something up and running!
