21 Targets: The 21 Day Audiobook Challenge

Doing precedes understanding. This course is for DOING…each day for twenty-one days you and your ‘class’ will record, upload and listen; and be listened to…you will compare and comment…in a positive and supportive way…you will learn from doing, you will learn from listening, you will learn from comparison…There will then be a group session each week to discuss and de-brief on that weeks’ work. This is a group lesson but in your own time…you decide when to do the work within the loose framework of your day…each day a short but challenging exercise will be set in the early evening (US Eastern Time)…your challenge is to give that exercise ‘moment’, do the prep, the research, the practice and upload your recording for the rest of your ‘class’ to listen to, compare and comment on. You will need to be able to record using ‘punch and roll’ and have a familiarity with a DAW of your preference. You will need to sweat the small stuff. G.K Chesterton said: “A good Novel tell us the truth about it’s hero, A bad novel tells us the truth about it’s author” I say: “A good audiobook tells us the truth about it’s author, A bad audiobook tells us the truth about it’s narrator”.
