I had a mind-blowing thought last week: why not use the Penslinger blog as… wait for it… a blog! I know, radical idea, right? Anyway I’m going to try to post here about once a week with my progress on Stolen Time, thoughts about writing, or whatever else tickles my fancy. I’ll still be releasing occasional episodes of The Time Out! Podcast, but I hope to be more frequent with these posts.
Two other things happened last week and they are somewhat related: I finished my second read-through of Stolen Time, and I bought a Kindle. The relationship was that I was not allowing myself to buy my Kindle until I had the read-though done. I’m a carrot-on-a-stick kinda guy, and there is no bigger carrot for me than a new gadget! I will write more about the Kindle in a separate post, but suffice it to say that I love it!
So back to ST. I read through it in January without making any notes. This was just to remind myself of the story. After all, I hadn’t been in that world since I finished writing it in November 2009. In February I went back through it doing some initial edits, and also made notes on rewrites and changes needed in order to make it chock full of awesome.
Alas, this week I won’t be starting on incorporating those changes. I have something to write for the Podioracket Glimpses anthology, and I’m hoping to get that cranked out this week.
That’s all for today, so until next time… be seeing you!
