MPF 4 - A Premonition

MAN, I stink at titles.

Anyway, here's a story. At least the first part of one. It will be continued in the next episode, which will be along real soon now. Hopefully by the end of the week. Whew!

Meantime, I hope you enjoy this. This week's lesson - Write First, Edit Later. I'm going to be spending some quality time at writeordie.drwicked.com. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this week's part of a story. Seemed like a logical place to end it.

So, I've been doing these rants on ustream...

This one is number three. The first one was too long to post to YouTube, but I've done a better job with the other two.

And if you want to see the others, number two is here, and number one is here.

MPF 3 - The Assignment

Howdy and welcome to another episode of Mad Poet Files.

Life for the last two weeks has been cuckoo crazy. That and I was lazy the first week. Bad Writer No Twinkie!

So, here's a backup story. The story that I'm currently working on will drop as MPF 4, some time between now and two weeks from Tuesday, and you'll still get a fresh shiny episode in two weeks. (MPF 5, for those who are counting.)

Also, I've been thinking about bundling together the stories when I hit five, and sticking them on Amazon as a Kindle download, or something like that. I'd appreciate any thoughts or advice on that course of action before I actually try it.

Meanwhile, here's a story I initially wrote a few years ago, re-worked, edited, and recorded for your enjoyment!

MPF PDF 2 - No More Kings

Here's the PDF copy of the Second Mad Poet File - No More Kings.

Again, I wish I knew what the heck I was thinking of with the numbering. I switched a little language here, something someone pointed out didn't exactly fit with the tone of the rest of the piece. I've left the old language in, but stricken out.

With the recent Amazon/Macmillan brouhaha, I'm suddenly even more unsure about putting the stories together in a bundle and selling them via Amazon or someone else. I mean, I would like to give listeners a way to support the cast, but... ah well. It's way early to be thinking about this, with only two stories down.
