33 We’re talking about project planning with our analog tools. I really wanted to discuss how we use our analog tools to plan out a project- things like this podcast, things around the house, writing, etc. You see, I have this issue, with the exception of my work and book bibles, anytime I create a notebook for planning a specific project my mind just shuts down. With a book or work- it’s easy I know that I’m gathering information for that thing but when it comes to other projects my mind goes blank. I have this idea for another podcast, and I’ve been noodling out ideas and writing them down in my regular EDC pocket notebook. I thought it was time to create a “New Podcast” book, as soon as I set it up and opened it to a blank page- all my ideas went poof. Gone. I put away the notebook (Baron Fig Computerworld Data Valley BTW) and opened up my EDC pocket notebook and boom back again. Show links:
Episode 29: Are You Being Abducted? A Discussion with Harry Marks!
I listen to a number of podcasts where authors are interviewed. Covered, 88 Cups of Tea and The Writer Files are a small selection. There are so many great interview podcasts! I’m always surprised at the number of authors who write out their first drafts longhand with pen or pencil and paper. I wanted to talk some time to talk to Harry, who like myself, is a writer and also works longhand in some form. So let’s talk about our favorite tools for writing novels by hand.
In tonight’s show, we’re discussing entry-level fountain pens. Entry level means different things to different people, in this case, our definition is pens on the lower end of price, so below $50USD, that might appeal to people who have never used a fountain pen before.
In today’s show, we discuss longer editing tasks as Less begins editing her 2017 Nanowrimo Novel. Dee and Less discuss editing, working with an editor and tools that can be used for free online to help the process.
