So, I am going wide with my writing. As my books come out of exclusivity with KDP I am making preparations for them to be sold on a several more storefronts. Part of the process is re-editing them.

In so doing, I an realizing that when I wrote some of those earlier works I didn’t know as much about writing as I do now. (I don’t know as much now as I will next year). During this editing process I would like to think I am improving on the works, making them better.

You know, giving myself and my work a second chance. Like this guy:

Awhile back, George Lucas upset some people when he added/changed/updated/re-edited STAR WARS. But, I think I get it now, why he did it.

His fans loved what he originally did, but he loves the story, and maybe wanted to make it the best possible. With advances in technology and skill level, or the benefit of hindsight, he thought he could/should do that.

I might not have understood that at the time, but I think I do now.

Profile Picture for Philip A. McClimon
Philip A. McClimon is an author who likes to write about the end of the world (post apocalyptic, Sci/Fi), mostly because he thinks the shopping would be awesome (No crowds, everything free). He likes heroes that are the strong, silent type and not necessarily male. By silent he means up until the time there is something snarky to say, usually before, during, and after doing something cool. He writes Urban Fantasy under the name Billy Baltimore for no other reason than that he likes the name. Many of the same rules for his other stories apply to Billy’s, strong silent types, smart mouth, does cool stuff, but these stories take place in a made up town called Hemisphere and involve stuff you only ever hear about on late night conspiracy talk show podcasts, which are, if you think about it, pretty awesome too. So, that’s Phil. He’s not strong, rarely silent, and isn’t known for doing a lot of cool things. But his characters are.
