Remember the joy of learning something new? I swear there’s nothing like it. I’m thrilled one moment and terrified the next. I can’t stop ideas flowing through my head.
I’m launching a podcast, Blood, Sweat and Words, in September.
Right now I’m learning how to record and edit audio using Audacity and studying everything I can find on creating podcasts. It’s thrilling and a wee bit scary.
Persistence is paying off, though. I’d like to say it’s brains or talent, but I’ll be honest, it’s relentless persistence. After a week of pulling my hair out I can do the basics with the audio software, my concept of the podcast is solidifying and my duckies are in a row for a new website dedicated to the project.
Here is the welcome message I’ve created for my new podcast website (which is under construction).
Welcome to the home of Blood, Sweat and Words, a podcast about writing today.
My name is Jo-Ann Carson. I’m a fiction and non-fiction author, blogger and podcaster.
There’s never been a better time to be an author, because the opportunities to share our work is growing exponentially. But it’s not easy. The constantly-changing nature of the publishing world is difficult to navigate. If you’re like me, you worry that your stories will drown in the rising tide of new books.
This podcast aims to make sense of the writing world today. Some episodes will be monologues. Others will be interviews with other authors or experts in the field. Episodes run weekly, on Tuesdays, and they are absolutely free.
Imagine, a weekly podcast about writing today. Current. Relevant. And above all honest. Let’s talk it to the bone. That’s what Blood, Sweat and Words is all about.
I’d love feedback.
