More on podcasts

I was very honoured that Isabel Swift enjoyed my blog on Tote bags so much that she reprinted it on her blog. She had contacted me before to let me know and I was totally thrilled.

Liz Fenwick had asked about the donut and the hole posts, plus Isabel's comments and they can be found in early March 2008. Some day, I will figure out how to do links to individual posts and do a greatest hits thing.

But the bottom line about the podcasts is that they are a fantastic education in series romance (as well as romance and writing in general). They should be required listening for any aspiring author or indeed for any author who is currently writing. You can either listen via your computer or download them to your ipod/mp3 player. All the ipods in my house belong to the children, so I listen through the computer.

And once you become started on podcasts, you will realize how easy they are and what a great auditory learning tool they are. They do say that there are four different types of learning styles -- visual, auditory, kinetic and my mind has gone blank on the last one... But podcasts are a chance to exercise the auditory.

I'm going to try your advice but I have no idea what a podcast is. I haven't reached the ipod culture yet.
Thanks for all the great advice and info on your blog.

Carol, a podcast is simply an audio computer file. So instead of reading what the editors have to say, there's a 30 minute segment to listen to instead. I don't have an ipod either so I listen to it right on the computer.
