Flagship

This post is partly inspired by a post from P.C. Haring. P.C. has had a very bad September. The theme of his post is “Why do we fall, sir?” The answer, of course, is so we can learn to get back up. But that got me thinking… There are many reasons why we fall. Some trip. Some will leap for greatness and fail to catch themselves. And some… are pushed.

Despite a couple months of disuse, I’ve managed to get the Wayback Machine fired up here, and we’ve set the verniers to March 4th, 2011 for another episode of The Galley Table! Specifically, we’re talking about Galley Table number twenty-five, where we discuss the joys and pitfalls of organizing audio dramas and other large projects over long distances with guest Ayoub Khote. We also end up talking about some of our favorite projects we’ve listened to over the past year.

Still in the process of getting ready for NaNoWriMo next Tuesday. I know what I’m writing. I pretty much know my characters, at least the main ones. But it occurs to me that I’ve never actually written up a synopsis for my story. Sooooo… here is a first attempt at the synopsis. Let me know what you think.

Time for another trip back on the Wayback Machine. This time we’re heading for December 16th, 2010 and the release of the fourteenth episode of The Galley Table. This episode featured Val Ford and PG Holyfield as guests and marked one of Laura Nicole‘s first forays as the head of the panel. This episode also marked the first official announcement of my podcast The Shrinking Man Project.

Even though I’ve been an avid reader for most of my life, I’ve never paid much attention to book-finding tools. I have tried using Amazon’s recommendation tool, but it always seemed like it would recommend one or two things I might actually like, and five or six things that they were currently pushing. My tastes ares pretty eclectic, so “what’s popular” usually doesn’t appeal to me. I’m either not interested, or I’ve already discovered it before it became popular. So, despite the fact that many (if not most) of the folks that I interact with online are using Goodreads.com, I was never really interested in it. I’ve done pretty good finding my own reading materiel.
