Linkage Vol. 2

More posts on editing, this time a list of the editing podcasts Writing Excuses have done. March is NaNoEdMo, so we will be focusing on editing our novels at the Writers Meet in MilkWood. At least, I will be. This post is to give me an easier link to add to my nifty SecondLife notecard. Hope they are a help to you.

Killing Your Darlings

This Sucks and I'm a Horrible Writer
Talking Revision with Moshe Feder(editor at Tor)
Working with Editors
Line Editing
Line Editing Dialogue
Critiquing Dan's First Novel

This is my FAVORITE writing podcast, hilarious hosts(especially Dan) and lots of good information.

As to Inky's word count challenge, I've been more of a 250 a dayer than a 1000 a dayer. Family crap and rejections keeping my head in the wrong place. It's a work in progress.

Happy editing!

Linkage Vol. 1

So I like to add 'age' on the end of words. I promise I don't do it in fiction unless dialogue calls for it. But I digress. This is the first of my blog posts of links. Most of what I'm offering today is reading material as I begin editing my NaNo novel. Chuck Wendig's blog is fun times, I like his style. So here are his posts on editing from December:

Why You Need Help Editing
Edit Your Shit 1: Copyedit
Edit your Shit 2: Content
Edit Your Shit 3: Context
Structure Baby!

I do this because they were a pain in the ass to find on the terrible minds site and might be helpful to someone.

In other news, I put the first Lucas story up on Smashwords. Please, tell me what more needs to be edited in my shit. I want a few opinions before I put up a cleaner version. Editing never ends. Realize this now and your writing world will be a lot happier.

I am also a proud participant in Inkygirl's Word Count challenge.

I have made my first day of the thousand word goal(1349 to be exact), and so proudly display her web badge. I will get it in the sidebar soon enough.

What are your editing goals for this year?
