The Appendix Podcast

For the next few weeks I have the privilege of being part of a smart, funny, successful group of writers on one of my favorite podcasts, The Appendix. A bit intimidating. How do I fit in, you may be asking yourselves? They are also pretty silly.

I was still nervous.

Today's episode: Ep 13 Four Guests and Five Games. Join us as we play a bunch of writing prompt games and let our imaginations make some fun (and sometimes disturbing) twists out of classic ideas.

Silly is as silly does.

The next two episodes tackle real live topics, like mystery writing and historical fiction, as well as discussing books we've read lately. Stay tuned!

Added: For those of you who listened to the podcast and wonder about my voice, it drops when I get nervous. I've actually already posted about this odd phenomenon here. I promise (I think. I really really hope) my voice lightens up for the next couple podcasts. Meanwhile, feel free to snicker. I did.

Okay Krista, I'm just going to go ahead and show how dumb I am here. What's a podcast? I read this word on writing blogs all the time and have no idea what it is. Clue me in.

Don't feel bad, I'm just learning the lingo myself. A podcast is a brief audio show posted via internet. Like a radio show on the . . . well, radio. Podcasts are usually posted regularly (like once a week), and you can listen while you, oh, do laundry or eat lunch. You can even upload it from iTunes and listen while you go running or are in the car. The Appendix podcast boasts that it is "a weekly podcast featuring writing advice, discussion of the industry and a look into the lives of authors." It posts every Wednesday morning. :)

What an exciting experience. I'll put The Appendix in my favorites and check it out sometime soon.

Have a lovely weekend. :)

Thanks for the heads up! I went to the Appendix and listened to a couple of their podcasts. I took the challenge on one of them, and I really enjoyed it. I'll be back, and I'll join you in taking future challenges. :)
