    Time flies when you're in quarantine, I guess. But my bright spots each month include receiving stories from the Word Count Irregulars based on a theme posted earlier in the month, and putting those stories in a FREE to Listen podcast just for you!

    Our theme this year is Animals and I gave our intrepid author's this creepy picture of an owl to get the creative juices flowing.

    Climate change is happening all around us. In recent years, we've seen record temperatures across the planet, significant melting at the poles, the accelerated extinction of many species, and an increase in the violence of major storms.

    Nothing epitomizes these accelerating changes more than the recent devastating fires in Australia.

    So with recent events and our theme of Animals in mind, this was the prompt to challenge our authors--the Word Count Irregulars:

A great show for both readers and writers

As my title for this review says, this is a great show for both readers and writers. Readers get to hear very good short pieces read by their very talented authors. Writers get to hear very well-constructed and well-written stories. Aside from the stories being entertaining, they're also educational in the ways that they are written.

Also, host R.B. Wood does a great job running it all.

If you enjoy writing or reading, give this show a listen.

Brilliant!

A fantastic outlet for new and upcoming authors. I highly recommend this podcast for those looking for new reading material, those that appreciate art, or those that want to support writing in all its forms.

Terrific podcast for writers and listeners!

R. B. Wood is a genuinely creative and entertaining host! The Word Count podcast offers a fantastic opportunity for writers to present their work, while providing a wonderful listening experience for those who tune in. Most of the episodes highlight fictional tales based on a predetermined theme. R. B. Wood gives each program a fresh approach as well as nice transitions from story to story. Well worth the time to listen in!
