Shot Story Excerpt

This is my reading of my short story- The Darkness in Death

I’m proud that I have shown all my character well through dialogue, action, description, thoughts, and feelings. I am also proud that I showed the setting description nicely, using not only clear transitions, but also using techniques like telling the mood through weather. I am also proud that I slowed a lot of moments down by adding thoughts, which showed my characters a lot. I’m really proud of my speech because it was passionate and I had nice voice variation and pauses.
I’d like to work on my resolution more, because I agree it feels a bit rushed, the ending is the most powerful, so it should be slowed down more. Also, I would like to keep in mind to not to use too many commas. I would want to work on reading less during reciting.
