Update on My Projects

So, back in January, I made a post with my podficcing plans for the year.

I... haven’t exactly kept to that schedule very well, but I thought that since we’re now about halfway through the year, that I’d update my plans and list what I’ve done.

Accomplishments (so far)
-Universe Within 1: Wonderland by [personal profile] choosetolive (podfic, 0:17:20)

-Or Be Drowned in Blissful Confusion (part 2) by orbedrowned (podfic, 0:21:06)

-Our Song Remembered by [archiveofourown.org profile] xof1013 (podfic, [community profile] podfic_bingo, [community profile] amplificathon, 1:46:30)

-Undercover by [personal profile] house_of_lantis (podfic, [community profile] podfic_bingo, [community profile] amplificathon, 2:17:28)

-Move (Sideways) by [personal profile] jerakeen (podfic, [community profile] amplificathon, 0:04:42)

-A Need So Fundamental by [archiveofourown.org profile] minxie (podfic, [community profile] amplificathon, [community profile] podfic_bingo, 1:33:55)

-Got [community profile] pod_together up and running with [personal profile] podklb

-Created a Fanlore page for the term "repod"

-Updated and reformatted the Podfic Blanket Permission list at [community profile] multipodicity and created a fanlore page for it

Things Currently on my Plate
-Podfic In Any Other World by yekoc: This is a charity podfic I was supposed to have this one done in February. I recorded it all last night and I have the unrealistic goal in mind of editing it all before [community profile] amplificathon ends next Monday. We’ll see how that goes. :P

-[community profile] podfic_bingo: I mod it and I need to work more on filling up my card. Some of the podfics I’m planning on doing will help but there are still a lot that I’m going to have to pull from somewhere if I don’t want to flake out on my own comm.

-[community profile] amplificathon: My goal for this year is to end up in the top 15 (I know I have no hope of winning), as of last night I was this close to cracking the top 10. I think if I get In Any Other World done I might be able to be top 10 this year. Edit: I just double checked my [community profile] amplificathon numbers and it looks like [personal profile] podmod made a mistake when calculating my points (I think they gave me kronos999's points because there were an extra 100 points on my count). so rather than almost being in the top 10, I'm comfortably in the top 15 (13th place). I'm going to need far more points than I have time for to crack the top 10 unless I find another crazy crossover fic like the Old Spice Kinkmeme....

-remopodmo</b>: Record More Podfic Month, where I signed up to work on podfic at least 20 minutes a day. For those most part I’ve been at hitting that goal, if not exceeding it but there have been a few days were I’ve missed entirely (like all of this weekend).

-[community profile] pod_together: I’ve spoken to my assigned author and I know she’s working on the fic, but I haven’t received it yet. On the modding side, there’s still lots to do. I want to build a webpage to host all the podfics on and [personal profile] podklb and I discussed setting up an AO3 collection and posting everything there, but neither of us have any experience running one over there, so I need to poke at it some to figure if/how it would work.

-[info - personal] kradambigbang art assignment: I signed up for [info - personal] kradambigbang at the last moment because they really needed artists. I’ve slowly, yet surely, been learning Photoshop ever since it was pointed out to me how important some people find podfic cover art. Even though I’m not awesome yet, I can still get a cover done in a day. After talking with my author though, I think we might try something a little more multimedia and there will be select scenes podficced from the story (it’s a 75K fic and the art is due July 1st, no way I’ll ever get the whole thing done by then). I’m also playing with the idea of using this as a chance to fill by "Abridge" square for [community profile] podfic_bingo.

-Get caught up on Or Be Drowned in Blissful Confusion by orbedrowned: I have the rest of chapter 1 of this recorded, I just need to finish editing it. Also, I need to record and edit chapters 2 through 9. :S God.

Things I Will Definitely Do, but Haven’t Started Yet
-[community profile] multipodicity: I have marked on my calendar to open signups around the end of June.

-Podfic A Little Down That Road by gypsy_scribbles: This is another charity podfic that I haven’t started yet :S It’s a fic I haven’t read yet, and I’ve been avoiding reading it so I can use it for my "Read a Fic Cold" square on [community profile] podfic_bingo but I think that’s holding me back a bit, since I don’t know the fic and can’t get excited about it. But, it’s a podfic for untamedfilly and she’s gotten two already, so I need to do the other charity podfics first since those recipients haven’t gotten anything from me yet.

-Podfic Falling Slowly (Upwards Spiral) by [personal profile] jeyhawk: this is my [info - personal] help_japan charity podfic, also for untamedfilly. It has a deadline of "sometime this year" and, boy, it might take me that long at this rate :S (Also, I don’t have permission to record this one yet).


Things That Will Probably Get Done, but Also Haven’t Been Started Yet
-Podfic Escapology by [archiveofourown.org profile] birdsarecalling: I wanted to do this for [community profile] amplificathon but I’m soooo not going to have time. But! [info - personal] podfic_project just announced Makeout Session to celebrate International Femmeslash Day so I think I’ll try to record this for that.

-Podfic: The Musical! Size 7.5 by lavvyan: This has kind of been put on the back burner since I’ve been so behind on my charity stuff, but I really want to get it done!

-Podfic the rest of Becoming a Universe Within.

-Organize a Podfic Awareness Week (probably around the end of August).

-Podbang! I normally sign up twice, once on my own and once as part of Group Slash Pad.

-Volume II of the Old Spice Kinkmeme (stargate_sg1sg1 said he’d do more for me :D).

-I should probably finish podficcing (This is) Not A Statement by [personal profile] seperis since I started it about a year ago, but looking at these lists, I’m thinking it won’t get done this year.

-Redesign my fugly website.

There’s probably more I’m missing here....


Based on my original schedule I was planning on podficcing 13 podfics this year for a total of ~20 hours. According to the schedule, by tomorrow, I was supposed to have podficced 9 podfics at ~12 hours. In reality I’ve podficced 12 podfics for a total of ~8 hours. Which... doesn’t actually look that far off from schedule, but 4 hours of podfic is a big difference. I’ve got to get my rear in gear and keep on top of this!

I actually started this post on Friday but was including a section titled "Things I Would Like To Do, But Unless I Win The Lottery I’m Unlikely To Get Done Any Time Soon (If Ever)" but it was sooooo long, like probably at around 50 fics when I gave up and deleted it because, yeah, at that point it was getting kind of pointless. Still, I would like to podfic some Cook/Archie fics, there’s a sad lack of S7 podfic. :(

Can I cheer you on. Your pending pods make me salivate. Especially Falling Slowly. I am in love with that story. Seriously

Also hell ya. There is a dearth of Cookleta and my oh my I would love you to do one a little hot and spicy. I want to hear your seriously awesome voice bringing that tone to Cook and Arch.

I know! Me too, it's such an awesome story! I have such a kink for mating for life, but I love how jeyhawk still gave the boys time to grow to love each other.

So, obviously, looking at that list I don't have time to podfic any Cook/Archie stuff any time soon, however I'm kinda new to the pairing, so fic recs would be be totally appreciated. ;)

You're awesome! I got your list and will be sure to check them out once amplificathon and remopodmo are over and I can take a break from all the podficcing.

(btw, did you see my ai_podfic post about the 2 Cookleta podfics podklb linked me up with?)

You got a fair amount done!

I keep thinking I should be upset that I didn't meet my goals, but looking at that list, I'm still impressed and happy with how much I did get done. Go me! :P

Yeah, I think that's the problem with us overcommitters. It doesn't really seem that we got what we wanted to get done, done, but writing it down definitely helps!

Hay, so I figured we should natter somewhere other than Twitter. If you're in town, would you care to coffee and catch up or will you be busyface with all the podficcery ever?

Sure, if we can arrange it, I'd love to meet up. Things are going to be a bit of a whirl wind for me, since I don't have much time and it's the middle of the week.

I'm going to get in late on Tuesday and will just be going straight to my sister's to crash. Wednesday and Thursday I don't have anything planned for the mornings. Wednesday afternoon (and I'm assuming evening) is the podfic party and Thursday afternoon I'm driving back to Ottawa.

You work a 9-5 type job, right? Maybe we could meet up somewhere near your work and have lunch together? Or if you have mornings free, I'm all yours :)

Groovy. I work right downtown at Queen's Park, but I can also work from home -- which means that my mornings don't have to start until 10 or 11am.

I also live near a couple places that do a good breakfast/brunch.

If your sister's place leaves you close to downtown, or near my place (College and Euclid), we can do breakfast. Or, if you've a ways to come into town, we can do a long lunch.

Sorry, sorry, I suck! I was in a podfic haze all weekend. I had this comment up to reply to but just never did. :-/

I'm staying at my sister's in Mississauga, and while the babies do have us waking up pretty early according to Google Maps, that's a 40 minute drive, and I'm sure traffic will be a bitch if we try to meet for breakfast. I think lunch would be better. :) Wednesday would work best for me but I could do Thursday too.

I don't have a cell phone, but I do check my email (parakaproductions at gmail.com) regularly, if you want to contact me that way to discuss further details :)

It'll be great seeing you!
