I wrote this ultra-short piece in June 2008. I can’t recall why – the inspiration simply came to me. Recording my stories gives me another medium for sharing my work. I’ll have to practice with my voice so that I can add life to different characters and not sound boring. At some point I may have to buy a ‘real’ microphone with more controls but for now, I’m going to use what I have.

Now that I’ve taken some classes on how to get the most out of my new iPad Air, I can’t get enough of apps like Garageband. It’s so easy to put a typed version of my writing up on the screen of my big computer then turn on Garageband and speak, then upload the piece and post it to my website. I haven’t tested the upload limits yet but I’ll read a longer story and see how that goes.
