Greetings for another year, writers and would-be novelists. I have decided to once again delve into the insanity that is NaNoWriMo, and I'm going to do the podcast again, too. I had already figured that I would, but today I got an email from someone who had just discovered last year's 'cast and was begging (okay, maybe just asking) me to do it again this year. So, I guess I have no choice. It probably won't be a daily show this year; I just don't think I'll have enough time. But, we shall see. Check back in October for some warm-up thoughts, or better yet, subscribe to the podcast feed using your podcast aggregator of choice. If you're new to podcasting, you can learn all about it here. If you use one of the common podcast services, there are one-click buttons in the sidebar to help you subscribe. Have a listen to a promo (Yeah, it's just a revamped version of last year's - too bad).
