What to expect on Jimmy Guterman’s blog in January 2013

with 3 comments

I’ve spent much of the past year learning about editing and trying some new approaches in my editing work. Over the past month, I’d like to share some of what I’ve learned. Here’s what you’ll find this month on the revived blog:

January 4, Make it new again

January 9, On providing editorial services to noneditorial professionals

January 14, Business casual: an editorial manifesto

January 23, Editing as strategy (and why it’s not the same thing as editorial strategy)

Happy new year.

I’ll be on BoingBoing

with one comment

BoingBoing logoI’m thrilled to report that I’ll be guestblogging on BoingBoing, one of my all-time favorite websites, during the first two weeks of March. In the guidelines, I’ve been told “We don’t allow nudity in the images, except under special circumstances.” Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. Internet peoples, you have been warned.

And now, part of a conversation, guaranteed repeated verbatim:

Lydia: What’s BoingBoing?

Jimmy: A site where interesting people write about interesting things.

Lydia: But you’re not interesting.

We’ll see. I have a month to prepare.

Honey, did you miss me? Honey? Hello? Is anybody home?

Two questions for the proprieter:

Where ya been?

As promised, I took off a month from this blog and the assorted Twittering and Facebooking. I wasn’t quite tanned, rested, and ready after the month, but I think I may have learned a few things.

Repeat: where ya been? You said you were going to be gone for November and it’s halfway through December.

Oh, that. Well, right after I came back I got a kidney stone attack: intense pain, multiple trips to the emergency room, bad reactions to narcotics. I’m me again, but I’d like the past few weeks back. I’ll write more about that in the days to come.

Lots to write about in the days to come. The main point: I’m back here, for a while at least.

A November without social media

leave a comment »

A writing pal and I are going on a blinders-on fiction sprint in November, so I won’t be blogging or tweeting or Facebooking (?) or anything that month. (I will continue blogging and tweeting and Facebooking (?) for work, though, for the obvious reason.) Email responses will be slower than usual, too.

Seeya December 1. I’ll tell you how it went.
