A while ago I did a reading of 'Cupcakes' which was enjoyed, and as such I pondered reading some of my own stories but after a few fail recordings I put it aside and forgot about it. However another user has began a reading of my '3 Weeks Party' story which is highly enjoyable, and as a result it has reawakened the desire to give more readings a go.

Having someone read the story without being asked to do so is a very sweet and nice thing, to know that my literature is liked enough to read it for others, and the fact others would enjoy listening to it being read.
Of course it has the problem that my name is always mispronounced but that has became a tradition in itself, and some of the volume of voices might differ to what I perceived (whispers etc.) but in the end such things are all the readers perception and I myself was likely always culprit to such things when I read 'Cupcakes' so I couldn't attempt to take any higher ground on that. Then again perhaps that is why I was able to read other's stories so easily and effectively while I wasn't able to do the same for my own stories, as I know exactly how my own stories should be read in my mind and as a result can't meet those personal expectations as easily.
Overall though it is a very nice thing to listen to my words being spoken, as I always aim to please and it pretty much portrays how much I do so when I see such a thing being read and then listened to and enjoyed.
