Another Finished Podcast

April 10th, 2014Posted by Veronica

Yesterday, I finished editing the last episode of the podcast for Broken. Twenty-three episodes, over 90,000 words, and nearly eleven hours of audio, and it’s a podcast. The podcast will finish this Saturday in time to be eligible for this year’s Parsec awards, and that finish will cap an amazing journey with one of the [...]

Big Blue Musings

April 7th, 2014Posted by Veronica

As I sit here watching the championship basketball game for the men’s NCAA Division 1 teams, I will be the first to admit that I didn’t think that Kentucky would make it out of the first round. I shook my head, mumbled something about a program that keeps having to reinvent itself year after year [...]

Season 7 – Finished!

April 1st, 2014Posted by Veronica

This evening, I recorded the final episode of Season Seven of the Secret World Chronicle podcast series. I’ve been editing the last two episodes, taking out my mistakes, running the noise reduction, and mixing the audio into the multitrack template that I have for the season. Tomorrow morning, I’ll set things in motion to fix [...]

Owning Up to Voiceovers

March 26th, 2014Posted by Veronica

More and more, I find myself “coming out” to people at my dayjob as a narrator and author. I realized it yesterday while talking with our department’s office manager. She’s been working toward her bachelor’s degree with the Humanities department, and she’s customized her junior and senior level courses to this amazing pop-culture mashup of [...]

Gaminston Colony – Part 5

March 24th, 2014Posted by Veronica

Weeks passed, with each day full of training simulations designed to prepare the recruits for deployment with the Regulators. As a whole, the group improved in their ability to follow orders and solve complex challenges in the field. Some of them made enormous improvements; Sam found himself leading teams of six for specialized missions, although [...]

The Follow-Up to Gaminston

March 21st, 2014Posted by Veronica

Well, there you have it, at least from the past four entries here at DawningSky. “Gaminston Colony” began as my exploration of characters and settings for a ‘verse that I created a few years ago for some of my favorite characters who had started off as part of my stable in City of Heroes and [...]

Gaminston Colony – Part 4

March 19th, 2014Posted by Veronica

With the towel wrapped around his waist, Sam left the shower in search of clean underclothes and an early turn-in. Back in the main room, the rest of the group that had eaten and showered had gathered around one of the bunks. The group that had stayed behind to be reprimanded by the staff sergeant [...]

Gaminston Colony – Part 3

March 18th, 2014Posted by Veronica

Sam contained a snort of surprise, but the others who had finished the course let out a few snickers. The noises quickly died as the staff sergeant approached. Chelle and the rest of the recruits backed away, leaving Rhikki to stand alone and face the officer. Sam stood off to the side, unsure of how [...]

Gaminston Colony – Part 2

March 14th, 2014Posted by Veronica

The first night at Gaminston was the only night of uncertain sleep for Sam. After twelve hours of training bookended by hourlong runs along the perimeter of the site, he could barely summon the energy to climb up the ladder to his mattress. His entire body ached to the point where eating and washing seemed [...]
