Nominated for A Parsec

The Holly Lisle On Writing podcast has been nominated for a Parsec Award in the category of Best Writing-Related Podcast. Considering what’s out there, I don’t expect to win. However, I do have to submit what I think is the best episode, and I’d like to take my best shot at making the short list. (It’s an honor just to be nominated, but I am … er … somewhat competitive by nature.)

However, I’m not the person to judge best episode, because I’m not the end user. I think the best episode has to be judged by the people who hear it and find it useful, or not, as the case may be, and not by the creator. So I’ve added a poll to the weblog. This will be unscientific—I have no idea how I might reach any sort of random sampling of the people who have listened to the show. But it’s the best I can do on short time and no budget. 😀

You can listen to all the shows under consideration just by clicking on the little Libsyn podcast widget in the sidebar to your left. You can get details of the shows on my Libsyn Page. The poll is in the sidebar to your left.

You can also leave comments to this post on why you chose the one you did.

I’ll close the poll this Friday, and send the episode that has the most votes.

Thanks for your help on this.

    I like them all, although I think I like the ‘planned’ ones better than the ‘answer all the questions ones’. That’s just me.

    The fangs one really stuck with me, however. The creative angle to solving the problem.

    Things that make you go ‘hmmmm’.

    I liked them all, but I particularly liked the story about the fangs. I do stuff like that, too. That was the one with Spenser making a guest appearance, too, wasn’t it?

    Congrats on the nomination.

    I thought the first podcast was best “where to start your story”. I used the information you provided and rewrote my first three chapters and the book got an acceptance letter (still waiting for the outcome though)
    So IMO this one helped me the most and I was truely grateful for the advice.
