So many recorded sessions, so little time. Actually, the second part isn’t exactly true. I have all the time in the world. I’m referring to the RWA National Conference recordings. I have lots of time because I don’t have to listen to them all at once. In fact, I am looking forward to parsing out the listening as motivation over the next year until I go to the next one. I’m very sorry the Michael Hauge session isn’t on the flash drive. I understand it was last year and I didn’t buy those (sigh).
There are 141 recorded sessions. I can eliminate the Chat ones before I even start going through the list. I’m not going to spend any time on the self-publishing ones right now because I’m not interested in that right now. I know some of the Ladies are interested and I’m sure they are focusing on those in the same way that I am focusing on where I am in the process right now. I am interested in the craft, research, and motivation tracks now.
I have started my collage for Antigone Rising so the “Art Journaling 101” might be a good place to start. I had some critique comments about diversity in my story so I could listen to “Diversity in Romance.” I’m just beginning to identify my core story so I can wait on “Adapting Your Core Story to Sell,” although it might help me focus my story as I finish it and start the edits. I have a lot of law and order in my story so “Law and Order for the Writer” might be a good one. And I’m only down to #28 on the list of recordings.
My stumbling block is how to listen to them. They are on a flash drive. I haven’t given much thought to how I’m going to transfer these tracks to something more usable. I want something mobile. Somethintg I can listen to in the car or while walking, or jogging, or gardening. I have an old iPod but have no idea if it still works. I haven’t even downloaded iTunes to my new home computer to see if they’ll translate.
Did you get the recordings? What is your plan of attack? What options do you have for listening to them?
