What’s taking so long?

By | April 12, 2010

A couple of people have asked why it’s taking so long to record Demon Seed and my other scripts. So I thought I’d answer them here.

For me, recording these scripts is a bit like voice acting. I like to project passion and energy into the stories as I tell them. The listeners can hear and even feel my passion, which helps engage them in the stories. If/when I don’t feel that energy, the recording sessions don’t feel right, don’t sound satisfactory to me, and don’t meet my quality standards.

The past few months, I was struggling with a nearly continuous allergic reaction, which really sapped my strength. So I wasn’t able to produce a good quality recording. I finally figured out that I’m allergic to potassium sorbate (which is an additive in the prunes), and now that I’ve eliminated it from my diet, I’m starting to feel my energy return.

It also helps that I can bicycle again. So hopefully it won’t be too much longer.
