reeling with the feelin' don't stop continue
So my head is spinning with all of the things I worked on in the studio last night and as such i had a a hard time heading for bed last night! I wanted to keep on working in the studio and keep that artistic mindedness going. With that being said one of the most exciting things I worked on was imprinting my moleskine with my 20pt century Gothic type, oh it's cool very very cool.
The moleskine in the picture above was imprinted with type and hammer blows. I figured if I could put it into the vise I could use it as a sort of press and get even slow pressure, which seems to be important when pressing items like this. It's also a tone more controllable than hammer blows- I tighten the screw and so I can put exactly the right amount of pressure on the type as I want.
Needless to say I played around with my 2 finished moles that are in the videos below and really came up with a way to make it work. SO now my next objective is to make a type holder.
I've finished a few novels and u know they are terrible. They will forever languish in my reject pile. While I'm just now learning to be a writer, I'm a lifelong reader, and I can tell you a number of things that tear me out of an otherwise great story and break my heart. Some of this stuff are things beta reader and early stage editing will or should catch. Head hopping, overwhelming characters with a ton of personality and somehow we know their thoughts when the book is supposed to be first person POV, weird grammatical phrasing that sounds fine or acceptable.in a first draft but is garbage in the finished piece, repetative phrases and thoughts and words. If you are a #lesfic author and you need a honest beta reader, hit me up, I'll read your work, send you a doc with notes and thoughts, and be happy to do it. There is no reason to not have a beta reader, there are tons of readers in the community who would.be happy to do it.
