    So here's an idea I've been toying around with. I keep planning on writing a novel and to date have written a bunch of cracking first chapters, after which I lose interest or momentum or motivation or any of the other things that plague weak writers.

    So to keep myself interested, I've been toying with the idea of making the work-in-progress novel a podcast. I am obviously stealing the basic idea from Mr. Ellis who did the first few chapters of Listener on Live Journal back in the day.

    Here's how I've been thinking of doing this: Every weekend, I take however much I've written over the last few days and read them out for podcast airing. No editing, no revisions. Just the raw first draft. I am not too worried about popularity or anything like that, the goal here is that even two people subscribe, it guilt's me into not abandoning the thing.

    However, my question pertains to publication. Lets say I do complete the novel, will the fact that it is all available for download as an audio podcast ruin the chances of any publisher wanting it at all (lets not get into the discussion over whether it is good or bad). Also, what effect does Creative Commons License have over any possibility of future publication? Could this whole idea backfire if I am successful is my question?
