I just finished yesterday, the last podcast has been edited, mixed, given intros and outros, ID tags, turned into an mp3, etc etc.
The LAST PODCAST.
(It’s not up for y’all yet, I’ll post it today—no, I’m not going to make you wait for Friday—and it might show up tomorrow or Thursday, depending on how quickly podiobooks updates.)
The end of a big project is always a surprise. I can’t believe I did it, honestly. The newness of the idea—how about podcasting one of my novels?—still feels pretty new. I bought the mic in mid-March, so that’s five months ago—five months!—but it has gone by in a blur. And now it’s done. Complete. Podcast a novel: check. This is so weird. The time between idea conception and completion just…collapsed.
Anyway, I really hope y’all like the big finale. It’s a bit long, 45 minutes, but it didn’t seem right to cut the last arc into pieces. Look for it tomorrow! If you’ve been listening all along and like what you’ve heard, consider leaving a review over at podiobooks. I know I’m encouraged to try things when lots of other folks have reviewed it and and said it’s worth my time.
I have had such a good time with this whole project. Podcasting a novel turns out to have been a very postivite experience, not in small part because of all you great listeners who have been cheering me on.
So, with that giant creative project in the can, I now give my full attention back to my current novel revision. Will this novel ever be finished? I started it a little over a year ago. I don’t even have a title for it yet….
