News: Echo 4 is chugging along. As you can see, I almost completed an entire pass in one week due to my brief reprieve from school. I only ended up cutting around 400 something words on my sixth pass, which means that my cuts are now getting down to the meat of the stuff, and that I’m really focusing on the seasoning rather than trimming the fat. I’ve identified pacing that’s weaker than I’d like from around chapter 36 to 45, and I’ve got my editing lasers set on it, ready to burn out the Boring.
Just finished shooting/recording Logical Idiots pod/videocast Episode 3 with Dicky Lefevre, which I’m gonna split into two parts and release in a couple weeks’ time. I’m gonna start school again this week and I’ve also been summoned for jury duty on 6/11, further complicating my schedule. Doesn’t matter—complications are great opportunities to practice the Art of Simplifying Stuff.
Alright, that’s it for now! If you’re a writer/pod/videocaster, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!
