So I’ve been thinking for a while about accessibility and, of course, wanting to reach a larger audience with my blog in general, but especially with Vacancy, and after some careful planning, I came to the conclusion that making an audio recording of the story, like a podcast, was the best way to go. So, Dear Reader and Dear Listener, I did just that!
The audio will always be behind the written work, unless I take a hiatus from writing between seasons which seems likely, but definitely not long enough to let it catch up. I’m playing around with adding sound effects and general ambiance to the story, but I’m not changing the prose beyond correcting minor errors (and editing all the “hu”s to “huh”s because Husband is being driven insane by those, apparently). So neither is needed to make the other work, but if you’d like to take a listen I would really appreciate it.
A separate post with episode 1.01 will show up tomorrow, but the episode is already live on my Anchor channel, and I am extremely proud of it. There are plenty of things that are imperfect, but I feel incredibly accomplished right now in the afterglow of wrapping it all up. Am I even allowed to feel this good about something? Honestly, it must be illegal. Poseidon is coming for my hubris-riddled ass!
