Your story is best told with your voice, but that can be hard the first time, especially if you don’t like the way your voice sounds. I can (and do) edit your recording and to cut and fix any little hiccups. I will make you sound fantastic, so don’t worry about that. However, it can still help to get a few tips on using your voice well.
However, all of these exercises will make you feel ridiculous, so throw your dignity out the window (or just lock yourself in a soundproof closet). First you’ll pant like a dog and blow out imaginary birthday candles; this helps you breathe deeply and powerfully so your voice will sound strong. Then, you’ll practice a lip trill in an exercise that will stop you from slipping into vocal fry when you don’t mean to. Then, things get really fun as you learn to put personality — several personalities — into a dull script. And if that doesn’t work for you, get in touch, I can always get some other lovely lady to tell your story on your behalf.
