Writing frenzy

OK, I’m exaggerating. But I’m excited! So I’ve started writing a new episode before I’ve even recorded the last one. And new characters are popping up insisting on getting into the action.

In other news, I’ve invited a friend and colleague, the wonderful Australian actress Allana Noyes, to play a role. This morning we experimented with recording our dialogue over Zoom. Now that was fun. Pure joy to be reading with someone else, and Allana has a great sense of the ridiculous. Zoom records our audio tracks separately, so the plan is to import the two tracks into Audacity, and play with any edits necessary. We shall see! It’s all a great adventure, from where this (are-you-sure-I’m-not-old-yet?) senior citizen is sitting.

Here I Go again…

So it’s not enough to write the scripts, play all the roles, record and edit the audio files—I have to create a whole new website as well!

Of course, I didn’t HAVE to. Just couldn’t help myself. It’s a bit dodgy at the moment, till I get used to the new system, but hopefully it will all make sense in a few days, and even more hopefully it will make it simpler for folk to find and enjoy the podcast.

Should I be calling it a podcast? I say yeay. It’s a short-form broadcast, sort of poddy format, so why not?

If you have thoughts on the subject, I’d like to hear them. Polite ones, of course.

Stay safe.
