[ Of course, I wanted to pay her.* It was encouraging that she wanted to play the role, said twice she liked the story, and was willing to do it for free, so she wouldn’t miss the part. That’s really satisfying ( as a writer)! — Thanks for making it possible with your kind patronage! ]
** Writing scripts for about 17 days straight, with the added concentration, and physical stagnation of sitting at a laptop for 16 hours a day, comes with little to no feedback, for most of the experience. When someone takes the time to give positive feedback, it means alot.

Hello, I am a visual artist, casting voices for original characters in a visual novel, I am designing. I noticed your superb voice acting samples, and was very impressed. Your voice from the sample, seemed to match how I envisioned Zaydimar.
If you’re interested, there are more scripts.
Thanks for doing inspiring sample work!

to hear you are practicing! Your page samples are top-notch. I look
forward to hearing it when you’re ready ( Really excited that you do
preparations – that will be quality work, I’m sure).
Glad to hear your enthusiasm for what I wrote – it sincerely means alot to get that kind of positive feedback from such a phenomenal voice actress- specifically on the vocal directions/ application (since the average reader can be overwhelmed by all the info).
Keep up the great work! Take as much time as you need.

appreciate that. It’s very honorable. I am okay either way. Although
I look forward to your work – I would much rather you take your time
to get better at a natural pace; as long as it takes. I am glad you
are trying to do your best; I will keep the role for you, there’s no
stress about it – it’s yours. It takes me time to write more anyway,
so in the meantime I can catch up studio work. Your honesty and
intention is appreciated and warmly received. I think your positive
approach should still be rewarded – I can wait a month. Do what you
need to feel less stress; cancel or don’t. I for sure will wait for
you to get better, either way. Don’t worry about it, take
