So … some preliminaries first.
This is why I shouldn’t try a serial format until I have the whole thing wrapped up. I did the first few episodes on consecutive days. Then had a bit of a break before episode four, then a longer break until episode five, and it’s been a month now since then.
There really isn’t any excuse. I knew what I wanted to do to end this. Although the final interaction with the inmate was a complete surprise for me. But life happens – work, cycling, a weekend away, other things – and this took a back seat for a little while.
This has been an experiment for me. It likely shows. Four of the episodes I wrote before recording. Two episodes – four and six – were off the top of my head. As a result there are differences in how the four were narrated versus the two. I like the two episodes that were off the top of my head, but I don’t know if I could do that for an entire story.
I’m curious how other people record their stories. Do you just read the story as written? Do you try for different voices for the different characters? I don’t listen to audio books, so I don’t know how this is done by the professionals. 😉
Anyway, here you go. Episode 6 – the grand finale. Now I need to figure out what is next. This is on Spotify and is alos available on the Apple Podcasts app. There is another podcast with the same name. Mine is the one with the picture of a sunset.
