#FollowFriday – @NLowell: The Chuck Norris of Writing and Podcasting.

in Follow Friday

This Friday I am paying my respects to @NLowell, a writer, podcaster, and the creator of stories so good, they can only be referred to as podcasting crack. Nathan Lowell is a man who has become a legend in his own time. His prowess at completing projects draws the awe and envy of the podcasting community, and accounts of his exploits continue to grow in the retelling. He once won NaNoWriMo in 15 days, with a goal of 100,000 words. His name has even become a unit of measure to which writers aspire: the Lowell. Instead of uploading a new episode every couple weeks, he uploads them every couple of days, in four and 5 episode chunks. Which is fair, as listeners easily devour at least four chapters a day. He has raised the bar of the straight read to a new standard. And that is just the true stuff! For the latest news on his work, head over to http://solarclipper.com/.

Somehow, when @NLowell isn’t pumping out new novels, or recording them, or doing voice acting for someone else’s novels, he has time for Twitter. Or maybe he Tweets while doing all the rest. Some say that time has no hold over him. I just know that I enjoy Nathan’s dry wit and straightforward, easygoing way. Just about all of his tweeting is conversational, so join in the conversation! I think you’ll be glad you did.

Things are going to be a little quiet here as we try to gear up for the move to the new servers. We’re changing platforms again, so there is some considerable amount of work to do. But Scott will be back next week with another Follow Friday. Until then, have a good one!

Thanks, Nathan! There is a fair amount of work to do yet, but when it is all done, things should be easier on our side of the blog, and the blog should be more useful and easier to navigate for everyone else.And we'll be able to set up forums! I'm hoping that people will want to come to the site and discuss tech issues amongst themselves.Doc
