It's been another busy week in the booth, always a good thing.
Started getting creative, made a nice little spreadsheet for myself that tracks the progress for each book I'm working on, makes it a LOT easier for me to see I'm actually making progress. Time passes strangely in a booth with no windows and 2 desk lamps.
I was thinking back to one of the first audiobooks I REALLY liked, "Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson, narrated by Tony Goldwyn. The book is great, it's on my top 5 list, but Goldwyn's narration is something that I've held as a gold standard for myself. It's not flashy, it's just a solid performance. Another one that's great due to the performance came out of nowhere--Richard Clarke is a terrorism expert who's been in government for much of his adult life, and to hear him imitating Clinton, W., and Condeleeza Rice is a treat, since he actually does a great job at it. Totally out of left field, and interesting for history nerds like myself. So, if you notice any similarities in my performance compared to these two, it's because they were a huge influence.
Alright, time to sip some coffee, enjoy some morning soccer, and then back to work.
