Subject: [writing] Pinion editorial revisions day 1
Security: Public
Tags:books, calendula, pinion, writing
I received my change letter from casacorona on Pinion last Wednesday. Oddly, it came through on my iPhone while I was in the Tor offices in New York. Such synchronicity! If I wrote that in a story, no one would believe it. Of course, that's true of much of my life. Ask calendula_witch, she'll tell you. (At least, I think that's why she's always laughing at me.)

Larger than anticipated workload on the revisions. Even so, I won't have any problem with the June 1 deadline. Because of the workload I am leaning a bit harder than normal on trusted readers, with special help from khaybee, danjite and calendula_witch. Saturday was my first day of hands-on-keyboard, after a couple of days of strategizing and general absorption of feedback from multiple quarters. I find revision workload difficult to measure, even more so on this project than usual, but I got about four hours of keyboard time in and I'm happy with the progress thus far.

Anyway, diving back in now for today's effort.

Pinion, eh? Well don't rack your brain too hard. Just steer a straight course.

Drove you almost, but not quite, to the edge?

Never, ever tell Jay Lake to whip out the stool.
