Daily Blog #3

Life

Dr appointments and errands. And A took his drive test. And the parallel parking got him. Again. *sigh*

Writing

Dean Wesley Smith mentions ‘cycling’ in his blog. It’s a method of going back through as you write to tidy things up as you go so, theoretically, you can have a clean first draft. It’s funny, I’ve been doing the same thing, only I call it layering. Though I have a ways to go to get a ‘clean’ first draft, that’s my goal as a writer. I just kinda squeed when I realized exactly what it was he was doing. Revelations like that geek me out. You can check out the most recent blog post where he talks about it over here. If you follow his video lectures (I subscribe to them monthly) he did a writer tip segment on it. THAT is over here at WMG Publishing Lectures.¬†They’ve got some pretty informative stuff which I’m slowly working through.

I got 612 words on the next bit of E1, but I’m so tired I’m going to call my daily writing done. I just can’t keep my eyes open. I like the direction it’s going. I’ve missed just writing.

Reading

I’m annoyed that I haven’t finished the Sales Copy book. I haven’t touched it today, thanks to life. I’ll try to wrap up reading that tomorrow. I need to practice it for my projects.

Music

I found this today and just about lost it. I LOVE this song and Alice Cooper just totally nailed it.

Hope you are all having a great week. Be safe, readers in Hawaii, in the path of Pele.
Be kind to each other.
