But not for me - and I don't mean this in a bad or critical way.
The way LeGuinn presents the material, I get the impression that when she reads, she doesn't actually hear the words in her head. Over and over ad nauseum she encourages the students to read their work out loud, to hear what it sounds like. This is excellent advice, but I don't need it. I hear the words as I type them. I hear myself saying them, or I hear the character say them, and out loud they sound just the same as they do in my head. This may be why I'm such a good cold reader and ace all the auditions where they hand me a script I've never seen before and say "read this".
So I'm wondering about the rest of you. This calls for a poll.
