story time?

While I am certainly no robin s and never shall be, I would like to suggest we blogger writers do a new audio festival. In particular, how about we do the one where we read each other's story as done before? It may be the only way I will actually write something.

Who's in? If you are in, can you post to your own blogs since not everyone stops here? Someone else might even host the links if that's better and this is just the suggestion.

Whaddya think?

It's always fun to hear the other blog buddies reading. I think it's a great idea.

I did a page linking to all the files previously which seemed useful. I don't mind hosting audio files if that helps. I could actually do it as a quick wordpress blog with a post per audio so people can discuss them. On the other hand, it might be better for the contributors to have it on their blogs so everyone visits around.

Anyway, I missed the last one but I'm in.

I'm in! Thanks for doing this, paca. I've missed it, but been so drilled down I hven't wanted to start my blog up again.

Sounds fun. Now I just have to record something. I generally forget!

JaneyV said...

I'll do it if it;s next week as I'm off work!

pacatrue said...

Woot! Alright, sounds like we have a large enough mass to get this done. Since JaneyV needs to do it next week and I need some time to do anything, how about late next week, say Friday?

The question is: I had in mind that we'd trade stories again and read someone else's story. Is that what people were thinking or are we reading our own?

fairyhedgehog said...

I don't think I've got any stories that could be read by someone else. I'd be happy to read someone else's but that doesn't seem quite fair.

I'm in. I'll read someone else's stuff or my own, whatever the consensus is. Late next week is great.

Robin S. said...

I'm with Pete - whatever works on the reading is fine with me, and next week is fine, too.

sylvia said...

I really like the idea of reading other people's work - because it brings new angles. Also, I feel much more self-conscious reading my own. But I'll go with the flow :D


(HAHAHA, my wordver is "whinge")

I'm in, I'm in!

OK, I think we've got: fairyhedgehog, sylvia, robin writtenwyrdd, janeyv, Pete, McK, and Aerin. I think I've got everyone on Facebook as well, so I will send a message there.

To keep things simple, let's try: hosting on our own blog and reading our own stuff. And let's aim for posting on Friday. That enough time? Then, Sylvia, can you add links to a nice page like you did once before? People can also post there links in.

Let me know if any details left out.

This Friday? Eek! I'd better get a move on!

I always find the actual posting very challenging: finding a mike, working out how to use it (again), finding out that blogger doesn't like the format... You know the drill!

Robin S. said...

Ok, mine's ready freddy and I'm posting it early tomorrow mornin' on my blog. I'll send the link to Sylvia, too.

Peter Dudley said...

I have successfully accomplished this! Mine is now up at my blog.

And by the way, if you like cute things, you should take a look at my two previous posts about ducklings and more ducklings!
