So I've spent more hours than I care to admit talking late night on Twitter to some rather dubious sorts. Okay, not really. More of that "losers I call my best friends" kinda thing.
The players: are myself (obviously), Carla from The Crooked Shelf and Jeremy and Jeffrey West from Novel Thoughts. It started as We Americans want to hear Carla talk (she's from the UK, you know!) and then I guess to be fair, we all decided to do it!
The challenge: read a chapter (or so) of a book and vlog it.
Good Lord, I did not anticipate how anxiety-ridden this would be! I HATE reading aloud. I can much better talk aloud to a crowd just freelancing it. But with reading off of something, I tend to skip over and add words at whatever my brain feels like doing at the moment... and I know I did that here. But I wasn't going to record it again so, oh freaking well! No one is really reading for the story, we're reading for accents.
And I'm from Texas, so go ahead and watch and hear what Texans sound like. (Please note that not every Texan sounds like this... I so happen to be from a pretty urban area.
ALSO! My hair was cut recently and gah! I hate it... especially my bangs. So yeah. Apologies. *hides*
