So. I spent the day trying to figure out how to use my microphone and Macbook Pro to create a podcast and a video. All stinkin’ day. Plugging and unplugging, trying it out, hearing nothing, flipping another switch, changing one system preference and then another. Endlessly. I felt like I was chipping little marks in a stone tablet.
Finally! I figured it out!
And created a short video to announce my newest online course, VerbTribe. It was gorgeous! Flawless! Every word trippingly fell from my mouth like a beautiful waterfall.
I hit “save,” and then “play.”
There I was, so cute! And there was my mouth, moving. But no sound was to be found anywhere.
And so, this video is what happens when you are voiceless. Lemons, lemonade. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did salvaging it from the trash pile and making an old-fashioned silent movie out of it.
What I am trying to say in the video is this: You’ve wanted to write for a long time. Perhaps that time is now. I’m here to help, if you’d like. A limited number of spaces remain in my first 37-day class of 2012. It’s called VerbTribe. And it’s for people like you who have had “write more” on your New Year’s Resolutions list for far too long.
Life is short. Write accordingly. Go here for more information on how you can create a sustainable writing practice in 2012.
