Cheers chuck 😃 I'd say it's not so much acting, as getting it to sound exactly how it did in your head when you wrote the thing. And not being too self-conscious to express the emotions originally felt. If you want any hints or tips on performing, give me a shout 😃

Laura, sorry, I've only just watched this as I couldn't open the link on iPad and eventually thought to search for it on YouTube!

Great choice of setting, the traffic noise definately adds atmosphere. And I think your delivery is excellent, it sounds really gritty and expresses so much emotion. I could really feel the plight of the people on the estate in your words.

I haven't performed live yet Laura (although I used to sing in a band) but I'm learning from you about performance, because this is essentially great acting. Brilliant.

Hey elP - well thank you very much 😃 So glad you enjoyed it. Shame you live so far away - if you liked this, you'd love a live performance. Thanks again!

Wow, Laura..I'm glad I finally sat still long enough to watch this. It's my first viewing of a reading and I really am impressed. Your facial expression and the emotional conveyance in your voice enhance the writing to such a great degree that it becomes apparent exactly how much a reader can potentially overlook--a real sense of anger, disillusionment, and disgust.

Thanks immensely for posting.

Thank you very much David. It was worth getting up early to get there - no people around to put me off! Yeh, I quite like that you can hear the M62 traffic and birdsong when it pans away 😃

Cheers, appreciate your comments.

Well worth a watch Laura. I enjoyed the written poem very much and your recital was excellent. I'm not particularly drawn to performing my own work but appreciate watching others who are, and who are good at it. I loved your choice of site for the reading, and the panning away to a blank sky at the end was meaningful to me.
