honestly doing these little poem videos has been quite helpful in getting better at reading my work out loud. if nothing else it enables you to view the poem from another perspective. things in your head sound so (so sosososososs soo) different then they do out loud.
that said, i almost never like what i've written after i record myself reading it. or at least it doesn't measure up to what i'd thought of it before really hearing it.
