News: As you can see, I got the cover stuff figured out for Echo 4. Right now I’m enjoying my reprieve from school by hitting 15k words minimum per day in my edit process. Echo 4 definitely undergoes an acceleration in pacing after the first half, so during my next pass, I’m gonna really buckle down and try to make all that initial exposition as tight as possible. I follow Joss Whedon’s philosophy that writers should focus on the Moments rather than the moves, but because I’m pretty obsessive, I like to tighten up the moves as much as I possibly can to make it a smooth ride to each Moment.
Logical Idiots Podcast is on freakin’ schedule to be released June 1! Dicky Lefevre is busting his hump putting together short clips of our stupid ramblings. The full unedited ‘casts will be downloadable through iTunes, while the videos will be tightly edited to maximize our YouTube appeal and give our audiences a quick burst of non-draggy entertainment.
Okay, that’s it for now! If you’re a writer, then I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!! 🙂 🙂 😀
