Studiolog: Week of October 7

What have the Shames been up to this week?

I’ve given this website a refresh — installed a new WordPress theme, and went back through the core content to make sure it’s up to date. To be honest, I’m still not entirely sure what I want the purpose of this site to be, so I’m still figuring that out, small update by small update. At any rate, it’s got a new look!

Speaking of new, I’m trying something different, which I’m calling Storytelling Sessions. They’re a lot like guided meditations, but for writers — my voice and my music will keep you company while you write for ten minutes. Since this was a quick, easy, and satisfying piece of content to produce, I hope to do a couple every month!

JUNO has Jake working on solos for our EP this week, which is pretty much the coolest thing ever?! Assembling our own pretend soundtrack was not something I imagined we’d be doing in the year of our Lord 2019, but here we are, and boy is it fun.

I’m still looking for an artist to illustrate my kid’s book about cute trucks. If you are an illustrator, or know someone who might be good at drawing slightly anthropomorphized vehicles, please reach out!

I cranked out edits on the rest of our The Writers in the Room backlog, so please enjoy these three new episodes:

  • NaNo Decisions – wherein Amy and I select the concepts we intend to work on during the month of November!
  • Our Day Jobs – ever wondered what it’s like to work a day as a UX writer or a voice designer? Look no further than this episode!
  • Our NaNoWriMo 2019 Strategies – tune in for some tips and tricks for surviving the month of November when you’re taking on a novel.

Josh completed a script for the review of our truck, so we’ve got two scripts ready to make shot lists for and then it’s off to various local parks and scenic locations!

Jake is finishing a very special guitar project as I type this. I can’t believe it’s almost done… I’ll be sharing photos immediately.

I’m making good progress on my drafts in progress, both in the editing phase and the writing phase. Nothing specific to share yet, but I intend to have another book (or three!) ready to go by January…

If you’re someone who writes collaboratively and regularly, and you’re interested in being part of an author collective, please contact me! I’d love to talk.
