Weekly writing check-in: the one with so many ghosts

ghost-cupWe’re pretty much nothing but coffee and ghosts around here. I’m revising episode three and doing final edits on episode two (which should come out on November 30th). This involves revision work on episode three (reading over scenes, thinking about scenes, staring at words and wondering if they’re the right ones).

For episode¬†two, in addition to extra eyes on the story, I’ve also completed two “listening” proofs–that’s when I send the file to my Kindle Fire and have it read it to me with text-to-speech.

I have to say that text-to-speech is one of the best proofing tools there is. If you don’t own a Kindle Fire, you can try the free online apps or if you own a Mac, there are several apps you can download as well (I have one on my Mac Book Air that I use). I like proofing on the Kindle since that lets me check the e-book file for glitches at the same time.

And that’s about it for this week before (the US) Thanksgiving.
