XV

Hit the magic 15 today, which is a nice milestone. One of two chapters that I hadn't really planned but just thought of from some perusal of what's out there:
  • Plainly Speaking -- Acting has come a long way from the old formal, presentational style. These days, especially in front of the camera or the microphone, you're told over and over again to say the lines like you're talking one-on-one with a friend or a neighbor. Which is also a good way to humanize a lot of the corporate copy we come up with. Talk like a human, as if you're talking to another human. Simplify.
I think I can still get this wrapped up by the end of June, but I'm also going to need some time to edit. Gotta think about that ...
