So I meant to put together a vlog for today. Unfortunately, vlogging is genuinely difficult. Not very difficult, but it does require more planning than I expected.
I've put together a few updates on video format before, but I've never used that approach for a writing topic. I wanted to discuss how to keep track of large casts of characters as you write your novel, and I didn't put together any notes.
When I sit down to write a blog, I often free-form my way through the post, going back to edit when I'm done, and then I simply post it. But with this topic, I found that making a video would require an outline of notes, some slides to put up for viewers to take notes, and then several takes to ensure a decent post. I didn't have the time for any of that stuff this weekend. And I REFUSE to put up a video post that isn't up to my standards. To be honest, they're not ridiculously high standards, but I want the video to come out well. I don't want to throw some crap up and hope you like it.
So instead, I'm writing about vlogging. I'm going to put together that vlog at some point, but right now I have a synopsis to edit as I get free time.
Wednesday will come with an announcement, so I'll see you then!
