Just to remind myself about the WIP post of doom
. WHich I have updated, although the bodyguard AU I started writing isn't on it.
Does it look bad that I mostly podfic my own stories? I want to make them accessible. My mum doesn't read -- she's dyslexic, but that's a recent finding to explain something that's been going on forever -- so for years I've read my original stuff onto recordings for her. And I really enjoy the reading process for revisiting the enthusiasm of writing those stories and the different kind of creativity and the sort of acting component, even if my voice isn't the best in the world. And it's like, I have to REALLY know the story well to do it. So my own stuff is my first choice. That or perhaps something I've beta'd that I know really well and love, which at the moment, means Miah's work: I did Karma
and so far that's my only non-self-podfic. I have long-time had permission to podfic Viola's Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter
, which I did not beta, but falls into the small collection of "fics I love unreasonably", and I might actually do that soon, now that I'm getting better quality readings and recordings at last. I have tried twice before a few years ago and never been satisfied enough with the result, given it's someone else's fic I'm subjecting to this treatment.
At the moment, I'm doing my own stuff. Eurydice is already on Audacity half-done. I am considering Nathan Wuornos' WInter Vacation and Squared as further short pieces, and I want to do Unbreakable.
I would like to do more works by others, but I think that I work better with fics that have an action and tension component which isn't strictly romantic. And there are less fics like that around in general. ALso I'm really wary of asking for permission then not being able to pull it off, and don't want to podfic first and ask for permission later because too much assuming.
