eosrose: (Podfic Big Bang)
[personal profile] eosrose posting in [community profile] podparty
Yesterday was supposed to mark the first Check-In for this round of the annual Podfic Big Bang, but I am utterly without home internet, so it had to wait until I could get to a free wi-fi zone.

For those of you who have not started--don't panic! You have plenty of time!

For those of you who have not yet signed up--please do! Sign-ups are still open, and will be until posting time is upon us!

In order to make the monthly check-in more useful to participants, the check-in will be followed by a GSD week. For those of you who are not familiar with GSD, it's an opportunity for you to set a personal goal for the week and hold yourself accountable with daily check-ins. It's a good way to get the ball rolling and interact with fellow participants.

Please answer the following for this month's check-in:




GSD Week will run until Sunday, August 24th. Like the monthly check-in, it is entirely optional. Come back tomorrow to report your progress!

SGA fic chosen (approx 57,00 words), author permission obtained, first half recorded and about halfway edited. I have an someone who will do the cover art, an audiobook m4b version and who has also volunteered to help with the html so my posting might actually work this year and I won't have to ask eosrose for help again.:)

I will not be participating in GSD week as I'm happy with my progress. That said, I do hope to record the last half either this week or next.

What have you accomplished since signing up?
- Fic chosen + author permission obtained
- recorded about half (60,000 words) before being forced to abandon the project
- mourned the project
- acquired permission for a different series (the main fic is over the PBB minimum)
- have recorded approx 64.5k (maybe more) of that fic (over half)
- have edited all but the chapter I recorded this morning
- beta listened to first 1/4 of the podfic
- created cover art
Do you intend to participate in GSD week? I don't think so. I have enough done and enough personal motivation to allow me to skip it. I also would like the ability to NOT podfic one day if I want (again, I feel I'm far enough ahead that this is do-able)
If you intend to participate in GSD week, please list your goals:

It's a Naruto series. Which is actually both nostalgic and primary? Though I only read the series for the first time fairly recently so the fic itself isn't nostalgic at all. I think I've put a ban on nostalgia fic for a while :(

What have you accomplished since signing up?

I printed out several possible favourite fics to take on holiday...and then I discovered that RL was not going to cooperate with me.

Basically, I've turned out to have too many things to do this summer/autumn. Three trips away from home between the end of May and the end of August: one fannish, one family holiday and one friend I haven't seen in ten years, and another friend's asked me to undertake a craft project for them during September! All of which has been (and promises to be) all sorts of fun - but unfortunately the result is that my ME is on the verge of refusing to put up with it all. So reluctantly, I think I'm going to have to drop the idea of podficcing this go-around, and go back to just participating on the art side of things. :(

Do you intend to participate in GSD week?

I wish I could, but no.

What have you accomplished since signing up?
Title chosen
permission granted.
4 chapters recorded and 3 edited.

Now the bad news. I had dental surgery last week. This should not be a problem if everything heals up quickly but there will not be any recording for a least another week. If it looks like I wont make it by next check in - I will let you know.

Do you intend to participate in GSD week?probably not

What have you accomplished since signing up? A podfic has been chosen, some recording has happened (but not as much as I intended to have done by this point)
Do you intend to participate in GSD week? No, because I don't really have the possibility to record every day, so I suspect it might feel more stressful than helpful.

And it's why I love this challenge. It feels so nice and fluffy and low stress. <3
