News: On Echo 4—I’m getting to that point in editing where things are kinda smooth, then I rearrange stuff in a bid to make them ULTRA smooth, and then I have to fix them again. This is where I really hunker down and make good use of thesaurus.com and synonym.com to try and squeeze every last drop of flow and meaning I can from each sentence. I’ve identified a big plot hole around chapter 36, and I aim to fix it as I head toward it on this eighth pass.
Just finished filming 2 Logical Idiots, Episode 4, where we visit one of the restaurants we discovered in SF from one of Mr. Bourdain’s amazing shows. We talk a bit about suicide, the meaning of life, and our views on that stuff. Both Dicky and I were big fans of the late and great Mr. Bourdain, and we wish him the best, wherever he is. Jane Tims, I haven’t forgotten about your request to talk about the writing process. I go on at length about it in the second hour of episode 4. 🙂
Okay, that’s it for now! If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!! 🙂 🙂 😀
