    Who Goes There?

    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.

    I hope this post finds you and your families all well and safe. 2020 has been a nightmare so far, hasn’t it? I hope the coming months see better times ahead for us all.

    Our theme this year is Animals and the Word Count Irregulars were given the task of writing a story based on a picture of a Green Mamba Snake.

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!
