Weekly writing check-in: of autumn and edits

Okay, at this point, I should call these check-ins: Whenever I want writing check-in.

But! I’ve been working on the edits for Coffee and Ghosts, Season Four.

It’s. Almost. Done.

The last episode is with my proofreader (and she does a tremendous job), and I have the Vellum file set up, so all I need to do is drop that last episode in, and then I can generate all the files for publishing.

Before I sent the manuscript for proofing, I tried something new with my listening edit this time around. I made a free account on Amazon Web Services and used Amazon Polly to create audio files.

Then I played the files on my phone and did a “story and sound” edit. I’ve done these in the past, but I’ve been tied to my desktop PC. This way, I was able to move around and pause the audio when I heard something hinky.

Curious about doing that yourself? Joanna Penn has everything you need to know. Check out this post on The Creative Penn.
