Thread Snippings 015: Mid-NaNoWriMo Progress Report

This is my podcast episode for Tuesday, November 15, 2016. The podcast release schedule I’ve set for myself says that episode 4 of The Thread Safe Podcast should have come out today. It isn’t coming out today because I would rather get caught up on NaNoWriMo than sit and do audio production. However, I refuse to skip a week of podcasting entirely, so here’s a shorter Thread Snippings episode in lieu of a full-length episode of The Thread Safe Podcast.

Show Notes:

  • I give an update on my NaNoWriMo progress…
  • …and on my costuming progress (or lack thereof).
  • I also do a really terrible attempt at a Darth Vader imitation. (There’s a reason I don’t offer impressions on my freelance storefront page.)
  • No theme music in this episode because this is another car-cast.

Movie Chat 005: Mel Brooks Night

I went for a shorter episode of Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew this week, mainly because of NaNoWriMo. This week’s episode is all about two of the great Mel Brooks comedies, Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs. The live recording in this episode was recorded on Sunday, January 10, 2016. This episode is going out on Monday, November 7, 2016. (And yes, I chose to release the audio from one of our more lighthearted movie nights specifically to lighten the mood during this election season.)

Show Notes:

  • I gave myself the giggles trying to create a funny intro for our live recording session.
  • No, I didn’t record any more content after we watched Spaceballs.
  • No explicit content in this episode (unless you count the description of symptoms of alcoholism).
  • Theme song for Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew: “Look Busy,” by Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com.
  • Transition sound effect:

The Thread Safe Podcast 003: Deadlines

This episode of the Thread Safe Podcast is all about creative endeavors. It’s mostly a diary-podcasting episode, in which I talk about my two areas of creative focus for the month of November: costuming and writing.

In this episode:

  • I share my writing plans for this month.
  • I discuss deadlines, for creative projects and other responsibilities, and the importance of finding balance among them.
  • I actually have quite a bit of costuming news to share in my Costume Status Update, including one announcement that’s been a long time in coming.
