Listeners Welcome: In Which I Read “Death’s Shed” by J.M. McDermott
I can’t believe how many times I recorded this story. So many, in fact, that my four year old started repeating the phrase “Death’s Shed” whenever he found me in front of my laptop. The two just things just naturally went together. This was actually the first piece I attempted to podcast. Now, finally, I have a finished recording. It even has an intro and everything.
It’s up on the Small Beer Press web site, my second in the Small Beer podcasting series. You can subscribe to the series via iTunes. I just knew something was wrong when my first episode failed to show up in the iTunes feed. It took a few hours, yesterday, to figure out the obvious: I’d included spaces in my MP3 file names. A big no-no as it turns out. Who knew? Clearly not me…
Next week’s podcast is already recorded. Mike DeLuca was a great. I had a lot of fun hanging out with him while we recorded the interview. Though…I’ve managed to avoid editing the track for the last two weeks. Now the walls are burning (figuratively) as the clock counts down to next Thursday. I need to get it done. But first I need to work on some of my own fiction. Unbelievably, I have a writing deadline later today and the work still isn’t quite finished. What the heck am I doing blogging? What I always do, trusting that panic will drive me to end.
