SW 021 - Refining Plotting and Some Big News

August 26, 2019

What do you do when the baby eats your work space? You prop your laptop on the dresser and record anyway.

I'm back with a quick update, some notes on the current book, and some more big changes in my life that should mean positive things for my writing.

I also talk a bit about writing on deadline and how I refine my outlining process as I write to make sure I'm always heading in the right direction and not wasting words.

Thanks for listening!
