So you’re a media junkie

November 20, 2011

When you start to look at the media as a potential outlet for your own work, you may well find yourself getting sucked into the great pleasure it offers.

Researching new media possibilities, perhaps you stumble across a show like Alec Baldwin’s new podcast called Here’s the Thing, which you can access on WNYC’s web site.

Then you click through and listen to one of the podcasts to see if the show is an appropriate venue for you. (Why not, if you’ve written an interesting book and can speak well about it! But do try to be clear-eyed about that, hard as it can be to have perspective on one’s own writing.)

Perhaps the show is Baldwin’s interview with actor Michael Douglas, and you forget all about your mission to build a media list and you just give yourself over to listening to the two pros talking about their craft and you just have to bask in their fine, funny intelligent words.
