This one will be shorter, or longer than usual. Mainly due to it being a video where someone else is doing all the talking.
Here’s a 50 minute talk given by David Farland/Dave Wolverton (same person, two names – pseudonym dudes!) at Life, Universe & Everything in 2011. It’s well wroth the watch, especially his Triage Editing (3:20) and his Syllabic Edit (27:45).
Once you’re done, here’s Dave’s website: http://davidfarland.com/ He’s got a great writing newsletter which I subscribe to.
