Take Control of Podcasting Released!

After three editions of Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac it was time to make the iPad and iPhone equal partners and change the title to just Take Control of Podcating. The new book is a major revision of the previous and is now available to purchase!

I have created a companion website at https://takecontrolofpodcasting.com/ to go along with the book and invite anyone interested to check it out and join in!

The book was the perfect COVID-19 project, filling in my evenings where there were no longer in-person rehearsals and no Geeks Who Drink trivia to host locally. I began working on the outline in around March and began writing the book in earnest in June. It’s the longest version yet and covers a great deal of topics. If you are looking to start a podcast, it’s a fantastic companion. If you are an experienced podcaster, you may still learn useful tips and tricks to up your game.

NaNoWriMo 2008

I went dark again this November doing the National Novel Writing Month. This is an annual competition to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. The idea is pure creativity. No editing, no thinking, just write and don’t stop. I just finished (hours earlier than I finished last year despite the fact that I got a late start this year). My story this year is a time travel story (which is a real challenge when you are trying to write straight through — time travel requires a lot of planning and watching for inconsistencies and the like) which is also a love story (I’m a sap, what can I say?) I’m actually very happy with it and, unlike last year’s novel, I plan on coming back to it and editing it and tightening it all up. But not today. Today, I just want to kick back and relax. I did it. I wrote my second novel and just want to bask in the glow of that achievement.
