up with figs, like wow.
qotd, on bathrooms and expectations

it's alive

 This is what I looked at most of yesterday afternoon.


As a result, I think I have a podcast version of the first wee bit of the book ready to go. The first installment is here.

I decided to start small, simply because it's easier to correct errors in a shorter podcast than a big one. My knowledge of the technology is still a little shaky. I'm no longer in the hitting-it-with-a-stick territory but am not yet to the my-touch-is-swift-subtle-and-magical state.

Eventually, once the whole book is recorded, I'll stitch all of the podcasts together to make one dowloadable file. It's good to have dreams.

For the forseeable future, expect podcasts once a week or so. I'll also be adding in audio footnotes and answering questions. Think of it as the Sweater Quest Director's Cut.

Please, please, comment on any problems. Don't be shy.


Andienne, I haven't yet read Sweater Quest, but I am looking forward to it. I listened to the Pod Cast and have to say you sound so formal. I think of you as a comfy friend, not so formal.

Another thing is the line that begins "Which brings one to Alice Starmore..." That line is repeated twice.

I jumped on this so quickly, because the favorite part of my job is when I get to proofread...I say, "I proof, therefore I am".

Unfortunately, I had to "proof" this while my boss was pitching questions to me, so forgive my own spelling and punct.

Love it! Susie is right about you not sounding as friendly and approachable aloud as you are on the page. But that will probably come as you relax into the recording. Keep 'em coming!

I'd agree with the formal sound. On my setup, it also sounds like you are reading in an empty lecture hall.

It's very fun to hear you read it. As it happens, I am currently listening to your interview on Cast On, and that sounds more like I thought you would.
