1. Slow down.
2. Cough drops! Water! Tea! Cough drops!
3. Voices are hard.
4. Apparently I'm very soft-spoken in my normal voice, and volume needs to be added in the editing process.
5. Cover my computer tower with blankets and a pillow to block sound! ...but leave the fan open in the back or it will catch fire.
6. Close the window, too.
7. Better to do wacky voices and recite kissing scenes when no one else is in the house to hear you and ask embarrassing questions.
8. Cough drops!
9. Goldwave is my fav audio program ever, ever, ever.
10. Noise Reduction>pre-set>light hiss removal>adjust to Y-88.00
11. Noise Reduction>use clipboard> sample CNTL+C from hiss-only 1 second, also for whine.
12. Take gaps between paragraphs to allow for water, cough drops, and ease in the editing process later.
13. Let my normal voice narrate. Penny is slightly higher, while Sheldon talks in abrupt stops and starts with a more flat tone across the board, unless he's pulling a Barney moment.
14. Don't slip into a sing-song pattern. Stop slightly after each sentence and treat it as its own.
15. When you record something aloud, every run-on sentence makes itself known to you, and you realize no amount of 'artistic' liberality will excuse that kind of thing. Your high school teacher was right. (Unless you're Jane Austen.)
16. I average 100-120 words a minute.

17. The loose and arty story structure favored by many fanfic authors on LJ just does not work on audio, I'm finding. Straightforward narrative is a lot easier, because when listening to the audio format you don't have the visual cues from paragraph style (or lack thereof) to give you hints like you do in the text format.
