    Announcing "Creative Project Hypersleep" - Coming Soon!

    Announcing "Creative Project Hypersleep" - Coming Soon!

    Announcing a new segment from Sounds From the Year Between -- "Creative Project Hypersleep." For every story you read, for every song you listen to, for every game you play, there are dozens if not hundreds that never see the light of day. This is Creative Project Hypersleep, a series of mini-documentaries from Sounds from the Year Between, the official podcast of Skullgate Media. Each episode an artist digs into their creative closet to unearth a project that they have abandoned. Some of the projects have been truly abandoned while others have just been set aside until the time is right to work on them again. But I suspect there’s as much to learn from these creative dead ends as from their finished counterparts. Maybe even more.
    If you'd like to share a project that you've set aside (either permanently or "until the time is right"), I'd love to hear from you. Contact us using the form at skullgatemedia.com, send an email to editor@skullgatemedia.com, or DM me on twitter, @skullgatemedia.com and maybe you will be the subject of a future episode. Thanks!

Glad To Hear Your Voices

I’ve been following #AchtenWrite, the prompt game for Achten Tan on Twitter for months, and have been posted my own shorts on there, as well. Now I am reading Achten Tan, and it is so good to know more about the concept of the anthology, and about some of the contributors with whom I follow and have interacted. I loved hearing you each day your name at the end of the podcast, as it makes you more real for me. I look forward to more podcasts and hope to contribute to the next anthology.
