voiceless again, but not as before

Published by at 5:28 pm under Life,voice and craft

Well my voice has been fucked up for nearly two months now; I tore tissues before Flipside (taking out my entire upper register) and have kept re-injuring them through things like too much talking. Last night I was down to a whisper after all the talking after the con and on the drive.

I’m going to have to pick a couple of days next week where I just don’t talk, I think. I’d do it this weekend but there’s (yet again) Too Much Going On that I’ll need at least occasional words for.

I need my voice back. Not having my full range of tonal modulations has really been fucking with my head, as well as my craft.

Hoping to work more on 4th street notes this evening; mine aren’t nearly as detailed as my fellow Voluptuaries’ are so perhaps that won’t take too long. Also want to compile a list of works in progress (or those about to be) so that I can remember which stories I want to write next. (It’s easy to get distracted with all the new shinies recently.)

    Wait, that _wasn’t_ your normal voice? The next time our paths cross it’s gonna be somewhat weird. 😛

    Re Brad:

    Yes and no. It was my normal voice, in the sense that yes it really is that deep, all the time. However, with the current damage I can’t hit any of the higher notes so I’m limited to about a 1.5-octave range at the moment. Being theater trained, ANYthing wrong with my voice feels like a handicap to my ability to express myself fully.

    But yes, that was (part of) my voice and you’ll recognize it when you hear it again. If not that, you’ll probably recognize the loud laughter. *grin*
