Today I have my first unhaul of the year. I have a bunch of books I’m going to be getting rid of. Most will be going to my library (even if they don’t take donations, they have a free shelf where people can put books).
There will be several more throughout the year because I am completely out of shelf space and I need to figure out what to do about it. (There is *a lot* of stuff in my house.)
Using a different camera and a different editing software than usual and noticed after both filming and editing this footage 3x that the mouth movements and the sound aren’t matching up with one another. I don’t know why and I don’t know how to fix it… yet. I’ve got to play around with a few settings to see if I can fix that in the future.
Disclaimer: I borrowed this book from the library.
This Year You Write Your Novel by Walter Mosley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read the paperback copy, which I checked out from the library.
While a lot of what is mentioned in this book is all things I’ve read or heard before, Mosley’s matter-of-fact way of wording it, as well as the examples he gives for each idea mentioned made it worth reading. This book is short and to the point, without going into too much detail about the editing and publishing portion of writing.
It focused on the act of writing and storytelling over all, which was a nice change. Most writing books want to cover everything, and while there is mention (less than a page or two) of editing and publishing, I love that the focus was on writing and building a regime that will see you producing a first draft in less than a year.
