So has anyone volunteered to host the Solo Project episode of the podcast? If not, I wouldn't mind volunteering to put that one together, as I will have some free time in the coming weeks.

I rarely check on this subforum, otherwise I would have responded much earlier :)
Anyway, I would be interested in contributing if you're still interested in putting in together, Chuck :)

Go for it, Chuck! Podcasts are few and far between these days, and always welcome when they do arrive. It's really not too hard (especially for someone with DW experience) ... have fun with it!

I think I'm going to do it! :) I might need some help with the ins and outs, but I can go ahead and start hounding folks for contributions. Just give me a second to get all my ducks in a row and I'll start the preliminary first steps of getting the podcast episode out there.

Chuck, If by Solo Project you mean, gathering comments on doing solo projects, I'd love to contribute. I've done only 2 so far so I can probably bring a newbie's perspective. All I need is some direction, such as questions to answer, where to upload a file, how long I have to talk, etc. I've never participated on a CP, so I don't know how it goes together.

I could contribute something about my finished solos and/or a cautionary piece about abandoning one's solo.

I've done 55 solo full-length novels. Is there anything I can offer? Maybe planning and pacing?

I seem to have done quite a few solos, too (and have 3 on the go :roll: ). Perhaps I can contribute something along the lines of the loneliness of the long-distance soloist...

That is so true. Having done the unabridged Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea (only my second solo), which took 3 months of extreme dedication, I learned the importance of the MC and a DPL'er who stays right with you on the project. Knowing that someone is going to listen, and SOON, can be the only thing standing between the reader and total isolation, and maybe even demotivation. I also fantasized that Verne was standing over my shoulder, connecting with me as I connected with him, urging me on. And then there was the world of future listeners to contemplate. I tried to read for them as if they were waiting in the wings. Corny techniques, perhaps, but it did keep me going through some long and tedious moments.

If I had known how vexing all those scientific terms would be to pronounce like I knew them, and research, research, and edit, edit 'til I got them all right, I would NEVER have begun the project! And which characters needed which voices! So I can certainly speak to reading your material ahead of time!

For me, the hardest part of a solo is giving it the attention it needs. I'm constantly finding a project that has orphaned chapters, and I want to help push to the finish, or find a book that I've always loved, and want to record a chapter or two.
A shoutout to all the great DPLers who are such an encouragement on the long haul.

Speaking of which, I need to give me solo some attention...
