There is a lot happening in the world today, but this blog was never designed as commentary on politics or pandemics. Here, I will stick to writing and books.
Closing in on getting the audiobook of Starman’s Saga ready. I had never thought much about audiobooks before it was so strongly recommended to me. I read very fast and figured that an audiobook would slow me down and interfere with the way I imagined the characters sounding. Listening to the draft narrations, though, I am changing my mind. It is a whole different way of perceiving a story. I do want to see how this works, but I am beginning to think of doing it again.
Taking a few days away from the stack of paper that constitutes the print of the first draft. I find that makes the mistakes stand out more when I sit down to revise and it makes the places where a scene needs to be cut/added/re-written more obvious.
