262 - Sadie Cat Intro (audio)

"Once upon a time there was a dog with a cat’s tail. Her name was Samantha Adelaide Catrell, but her friends called her Sadie Cat. She was a very adventurous explorer and loved going to places she had never been. Seeing new things and experiencing new places was her favorite thing to do. The world was filled with all kinds of magical things. Sometimes she would get in sticky situations, both figuratively and literally. We’ll be reading her stories in order, though feel free to jump in whenever you would like. This is The Strange and Marvelous Adventures of Sadie Cat."

I finished my Sadie Cat short story (~7,500 words) late last week. I realized that as a piece of reading material it's just okay. I've also been listening to a lot of podcasts this past year and decided it may be good to produce it into a radio drama. Perhaps as a production it would help the lack of writing prowess into a story/adventure that could be enjoyed better.

Here's a demo of the intro that will be used. I recorded with the laptop microphone just to warm up. It was also recorded in my kitchen, so the echo is absolutely awful (to me, anyway). It's been a long time since I've recorded anything, to be honest.

I've been trying to distinguish my narration voice and my Sadie Cat voice. It's been tricky, but maybe the slight variation in my tone will be enough. I hope so!

I believe when this is all said and done, the story "Sadie Cat and the Sky Tower" will be an hour+ radio drama and the first step into doing this regularly.
