#WriteTuesday – Podcast Update and Edits Continue

Whoops, I missed last week’s #WriteTuesday, when I was supposed to let you know how the podcast read through went!  I was honestly pretty worried about it – my co-worker Derek and I have been working on the scripts for months without much of a break, and so were both too close to them to be objective; I was half-convinced we were going to be told that the scripts aren’t as good (or as funny) as I thought they were. Thankfully that wasn’t the case – everyone seemed to like them, and the first eight scripts only need minor dialogue changes! Episode 9 needs to be edited, so that’s going to be my plan for work over the next few weeks.

I have to say, the read through itself was a super fun experience – I’ve never had characters I’ve written come to life like this before! 🙂  Plus the fact that there were only minor dialogue changes made me feel like Derek and I really nailed the characters for the actors.

The editing has also been going well.  I’ve gotten two book chapters edited and sent back to their authors over the last two weeks (I just finished the second one last night).  Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll have the first one I finished back so I can take another look at it (I know there are comments waiting for me, but I didn’t want to jump back into it and confuse everything; I’ve been using track changes on Google Docs and when I’m done the chapters look like confusing messes thanks to all the green!)

So how have the last few weeks been for you? What are you working on? 🙂

Happy Thanksiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 🙂

This week I received word that the book chapter I was waiting on was written! So I spent a lot of time this weekend working on the edits for it (around checking on my cat who wanted to be outside and going to a family Thanksgiving dinner).  I also managed to finish reading the March 2019 issue of Maclean’s – onto April 2019!

This week I’m excited (and somewhat nervous) – at work we’re doing a read through of the podcast scripts I’ve been working on! I don’t know if I’ve said much about the podcast on here, but me and a coworker have been writing a radio-drama for the 50th anniversary next year. Right now all nine scripts are written (the last few just need some tightening up); we’re hoping to start recording later this year with the first episode released around Feb 2020! I’ll let you know how the read through goes next week. 🙂
