August 2018: Buckets of Ice
I’ve been working on the content pipeline plan, which requires that I actually produce content on a regular basis. I’m not making it as quickly as I’d like, and so I spent some time last month thinking about my process. While I was doing that, I figured I might as well finish reworking the second writing book. That lead to making some new content, and what do you know? I have a book done.
Finish Your Novel! is the companion to Jumpstart Your Novel, and it is scheduled to come out on August 21st. All the various retail outlets are still getting the data feed, so it will be a few days yet before pre-order links are up, but when they are, I would appreciate any attention you might give the wee book.
Reading: The second rule of writing is that you must read, and so I’ve been doing a lot of reading. I discovered Keith McCafferty, and have read most of his fly fishing noir series. They take place in Montana, along the rivers and in the small towns where I grew up, and so there’s a bit of nostalgia in my enjoyment of them.
Watching: I have the complete Wild Wild West sitting upstairs. I’m going to work my way through all four seasons and two follow-on movies, yes I am.
Listening: Zoë Keating has an new EP out of layered cello music that is marvelous. Zo&;euml; played in Rasputina once upon a time, and she’s been doing the DIY musician thing for a bit now. Please pick up an EP or record of hers if you like what is streaming at her site.
