February 2012

This past has been a busy week. I’ve been driven to exhaustion a couple of times, and had my day taken up by errands.With production down so much on this week, I had pinned a lot of hopes on this weekend. In the end, I didn’t get as much done this weekend as I had hoped, but I did manage to get a bit of work done.

Some trouble getting the Wayback Machine working this week, but I finally got it to kick over. Today’s trip into the past takes us to April 7th, 2011 and an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This episode’s featured promo is Katarina Maimer’s Wiener Blut. This episode comes from the beginning of the plateau that I spent most of last year struggling with. This is also the first episode where my wife has taken over the editing duties from me.

Enjoy the show.

About ten days ago, I posted about being invited to write in another author’s universe. At the time, I was ecstatic just for being offered the chance to contribute to another author’s universe. Of course, the easy part is getting the invitation. Then you have to come up with an actual idea for the story, get it approved, and then write the sucker.

This week has gotten me off track with my planned production. I started off well with a Wayback Machine post, and a new review up on the Nifty Tech Blog, but then Wednesday and Thursday I was so exhausted I just couldn’t get anything done. I just slept. Today wasn’t exactly brilliant either. I didn’t get any writing done, but I did get out the mic and catch up on some overdue voice work.

Time for another trip with The Wayback Machine, folks! Today’s trip takes us back to April 1st, 2011 for an episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This is a check in episode, but it includes the excellent promo for Brand Gamblin’s podcast novel, The Hidden Institute. This is an excellent steampunk tale in a more modern version of a steampunk universe. If you haven’t given it  a listen, or a read, I recommend checking it out.

If you’re also a listener to The Shrinking Man Project, you’ll know that I have one final surgical procedure coming up in the beginning of February. If you’ve been following my Twitter feed, you’ll know that this procedure is today. So, while I’m off getting operated on, and recuperating, I thought I’d bring you another treat from the Wayback Machine. Today’s offering comes from March 26, 2011, and it is another Galley Table episode. In this one, we’re talking about strategies for e-book pricing. Our guest for this show is the lovely and talented Veronica Giguerre.  As ever, notes, and the episode after the jump. [click to continue…]

Yesterday was a day for great news to come my way. Not all of the good news happened yesterday, but it was the day that word reached me on a number of things. If any of this is news to you, I’m happy to be the bearer of glad tidings. [click to continue…]

For Monday of this week, we’re going to fire up the Wayback Machine again and point it back to March 25th of 2011 and another episode of The Shrinking Man Project! This episode marked a return to Philosophy after a long hiatus. It also marked a return to me doing episodes on the fly without writing a script out ahead of time, so the episode is a bit on the long side, and does kind of ramble a bit.

This episode has a particularly useful bit of Philosophy, talking about how we create conditioned responses and find ourselves reacting instead of reasoning, and what we can do to regain control and keep from being hijacked. If you can gain some control over that part of your mind that is commonly called the “lizard brain”, you gain much more control of your life and how you present yourself. It is a simple idea, but it can help improve your life in untold ways.

For those with no interest in the Super Bowl, such as myself, I thought I’d provide a little update on how things have been going in the studios lately. As usual, things have been busy. But in comparison to recent weeks, I feel as if I’ve gotten a lot more accomplished in the past week than I have in the weeks that preceded it.

Today the Wayback Machine is set for March 15th, 2011 and another episode of The Shrinking Man Project. This is another check in episode, and it features me figuring out how to manage my life after dealing with my wife’s illness and my work moving to a new site farther away from my home. This episode might be particularly helpful for folks wanting to deal with the surprises that life throws at you.
