Day 2

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.
Ack. I'm no good at this. My feeble excuse at a list.

1. Expect. I think a key to writing again is knowing someone is there expecting and anticipating the next 'installment' or what have you.

2. Befriend. Babble with me.

3. Empower. I'm thinking... seeing other people talking about getting pod-whatevers of their stories. That sounds so me. When I was young I used to think reading for audiobooks would be the best job ever. So... do I have the technological wherewithal and competence to pod-whatever?

Re: #3: why not try? :D You could start out with something like filling out a voice meme (http://eremikadefensesquad.tumblr.com/post/124698367499/if-i-get-ten-accents-ill-record-myself-saying ?) and see where it goes if you get comfy with a microphone.

Though it's super great that you want to record your own fics (or other people's fics) or get your fics recorded, I'd say that the first step is to call the fanwork by the actual term: podfic.

Secondly, if you're looking into getting podficcers interested on checking your fics, you might want to have a blanket statement somewhere on your profile of all the platforms where you post and/or archive your fic.

There are several communities for aspiring podficcers out there. Good luck.

:D Hi!

About #3, Podfics/audiofics/audio-fanworks are one of the best things that happened to me fandom-wise and I'm super thrilled every time someone expresses desires to try to make some. So first: YAY and GOOD LUCK!! :DD

Secondly, if you'd like to find some a)tutorials, b)more people into podfics, I think you'll like communities or guides such as:

- podfic-tips (active Ask-for-help community on LJ)
- podfic-tips tag for "microphones" (for your specific current questions about microphones! Add your own post if no one answered what you needed to know.)
- A Beginner’s Guide to Making Podfic by EmilianaDarling (a clear short guide that covers all the basics, on tumblr)
- How to Podfic: Pointers to Guides and Tutorials (encouragement, resources and communities links, on Dreamwidth)
- A guide to podfic on Livejournal (Has ressources for creating, but also a list of fandom-specific communities, if you're looking to make more contacts!)

As for 1 and 2: These are my fannish goals too for the new year. XD I'm aiming to get nearer to them by participating in commnities or fests/exchanges more, and picking up prompts when doing my fanworks (so that I'm garanteed an audience of at least one!). Did you have any plans, too?

What a great set of links for anyone wanting to start out in doing podficcing. Thank you for taking the time to compile it and make the hyperlinks.
