Just a quick dash in to let you know that my friend and first reader Jim Allder finished with his reading of Tunerville. He liked it!
He said it reminded him of a cross between Michael Crichton and Bruce Joel Rubin (author of the screenplay for Ghost; probably because there are ghosts in it). High praise indeed. To be compared to the great Crichton made me squee.
Next, I will incorporate his suggestions (one was something I was thinking about doing anyway, which tells me it was on track) and then print it out for its first hard copy edit. D’aww!
Although that means I have to haul it around in a binder for a few days. Ick. Also I better buy some paper. And revisit my copymarks, most of which I’ve forgotten by now. I still have my study sheet.
That’s all I have time for right now, since I’m drowning in homework (the four principles of design are: Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, and Proximity. Acronym: C.R.A.P. Tee hee!). But I’ll be back soon, when I get my edit finished, and I might even post a wee bit of text.
‘Til next time, people. Keep your feet warm.
How exciting for you!
I know, right? :D It means I’m getting better at what I’m doing. Which is what practice is for!
Lol! Nice acronym
Haha, that’s what the textbook said, except the author wrote, “We don’t have a snappy acronym…oh dear….” :D
