It’s been a weird year so far. Mainly because it feels like we’ve been looping the same month since march of last year. However, that doesn’t mean that nothing has happened.
I now have an actual shop for my t-shirt designs with a URL that’s memorable enough that you can tell it to people if they ask where you got your neat t-shirt/facemask/hoodie/tote. My stuff for sale is now at https://department-y.store why not treat yourself to something nice.
That Department Y URL is linked to the narrative podcast that I’m writing. It’s not quite ready for a Project File post yet but the writing is going pretty well. I have the first episode written and I’m on the final stretch with the second.
I keep expecting to run out of steam or suddenly be struck with doubt and decide that a podcast is a terrible idea but so far it’s not happening. Of course there is still a lot of work to be done. Not just with the writing and recording, but with the branding and the organisation.
If you want to support me in my efforts you could buy something from my shop or pop along to my Ko-fi page and buy me a virtual coffee.
I’ve decided to make something. My intention is to write and record a short run fiction podcast. At the moment it feels like it should be done in 12 episodes or less but that might change during the writing.
If you’re thinking that is sounds rather ambitious then you’re right. It is a pretty bold plan for me. However, it is a smaller project than it sounds, because I already have a solid first draft of the story, and it only needs to be re-written with the format in mind. Of course there is a bunch of hidden work. I’ll probably need to set up a company to publish the podcast and there’s bound to be a whole bunch of other tedious stuff that I just can’t see yet.
I don’t know if I’ll ever get any money from this. Some podcasts do run adverts but I’ve no idea how they find the advertisers and it’s not like I’ve got any track record to rely on to attract some.
To be honest for a moment, I don’t know if this is a good idea. It might even be a terrible idea. I’m not doing it because I think it’s a good idea. I’m doing it because it’s what I want to do and it’s been a while since I’ve really wanted to do anything.
After all that hard reading you deserve something to look at. This is another one of my digital paintings of Dunnottar Castle.
