I was really excited to submit the short to the podcast. There’s always a rush when hitting “send” on something like this. I was more excited when the wonderful editor, Kris, accepted the submission and probably read that email three or four times. Hearing the story today was really cool. Hearing someone else read the tale, hearing how another person interprets the pacing and adds emphasis. For the reals, the whole experience has been amazing and one day I hope to write something else to submit (and you should too! starting in January. Subscribe to the blog for updates).
Better than all of that though was part one of the Christmas serial. There’s whimsy and wonder, humor and one character in particular that I basically met in real life today (and subsequently laughed at during our phone conversation and I only sort of feel bad about that). I am very much looking forward to part two. Go listen!
Having Garrick and the Dare after it feels like being a TV show debuting after the Super Bowl in the best possible way.
So click here (or the multiple links above) https://noextrawords.wordpress.com/2015/12/01/episode-24-a-christmas-serial-part-1/ and listen to part one of the Christmas serial and then hear Garrick and the Dare. It is well worth your time.
