This thing about vocabulary is such an interesting discussion for me because [personal profile] analise010 and I have just been talking about how we didn't have the words to describe what we liked about certain podficcers, just that we liked them. For me at least, it's a lot easier to pinpoint exactly what I liked about written work than performances and I think that's something that I want to work on.

I've started doing that 'liveblogging' reaction-type comment when I'm listening to stuff recently (in fact, I'm doing it right now!) because it helps me leave better feedback but that's harder to do when you're not sitting at the computer listening to a podfic and doing nothing else and also it kind of... takes you out of the experience? Like, sometimes I would rather just sink into a story rather than be constantly reflecting on what I like about it and those are the times when I think I tend to just leave squee or like a row of ♥♥♥♥♥ in my feedback, haha.

Vocabularies - yes, this! I often find myself lacking the *words* to convey how I liked something, which hinders my drive to write pretty lengthy comments. I've helped some of that by reading musical reviews (online, in newspapers) and writing down a quick list of audio vocabulary whenever I feel stuck when commenting. If you'd like, we could exchange on vocabulary on podfic_tips or something. :D

Live-reactions: that's a smart way to do it! But I can see how it'd break the mood sometimes. If it's mostly a location problem - for instance not being sitting at the computer - what I've done often is carry around a notebook or post-it stack and a tiny pen, and jot down title + notes. At home, I'd go through the notebook or put the sticky notes around my screen to remember to type them down. It's not perfect, but can be useful in subways or when one needs their computer screen for actual-work when at work. ;)

All that said, I very much doubt that anyone wouldn't be over the moon pleased with your rows of hearts either. It shares the love just as effectively! <33

I think it could be really helpful to open up a discussion on vocabulary, honestly.

I sometimes make notes on my phone when I'm listening away from the computer but remembering to type them up afterwards is always the worst part!

The post on commenting vocabulary is now up, here on podfic-tips, if you'd like to add your own. :)

This was so cool! Thank you for recording, ladies <3 (and editing and posting and everything).

I am curious about a (series of?) work(s) from Kalakirya that you both referred to as "conversations" where different people recorded the same excerpts of texts - where can I find these? If they are public items, of course. As a translator who's seen that exercise done in translation, I am wildly and particularly interested in this. :D

I so loved hearing your squee and enthusiasm and thoughtfulness. ♥
