Where Did It Go?

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

I used to write poetry. I wrote it all the time. I have a two foot stack of notebooks filled with it (and I’m pretty sure I don’t have all of it still). When I was in high school, study hall was for writing poetry. It’s what got me through the rest of the day. Any little thing that was on my mind, it ended up expressed in verse. It got me through a lot of tough times.

Podcasts-a-Plenty

Thursday, March 9th, 2006

Work’s still a bit crazy, but I’m trying to keep it at bay. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel (if it would only stay still and wait for me to catch up).

I’ve been listening to some more Podcasts lately (if you don’t know what podcasting is, look it up, or ask a ninja). It started with Dragon Page Cover-to-Cover, a podcast about Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels featuring interviews with authors. Talk about a show for me.

In the past few weeks I’ve discovered some great podcasts about writing: Mur Lafferty’s I Should Be Writing and Tee Morris’ The Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy. I’ve been listening to these while eating breakfast. There’s a lot of good stuff in there, and it has the added benefit of making me feel guilty for not writing. The other day Denise asked if Holly Lisle had a podcast. She didn’t at the time, but she does today. I listened to Holly Lisle On Writing at lunch today. There’s another one to add to the list.

I’ve always had an attraction to the audio format. I used to devour the children’s audiobooks at the local library. I even have some that my grandfather copied to tape for me somewhere between the ages of 2 and 5. I discovered Old Time Radio at some point during elementary school, and ever since I’ve been fascinated with audio drama. I’ve written a number of radioplays over the years, and with podcasting, maybe it would be worth dusting them off (not right now though, I have enough on my plate).
