Right now the next chapter of That Which Cannot Die is still under heavy construction. The current layout is more of a framework, another five or six thousand words are left to deal with and the bulk of the editing team is still hard at work. (So am I, adding stuff based on suggestions). I do not think it will come out today (June 30) , more likely this weekend.
In other news:
I am planning to finally get around to slowly rewriting OSABC with the help of
slave labor another Editing Gang. It will be in Google Doc format, and posted one chapter at a time. The goal of the remastering of OSABC is threefold:
- Fix up stupid typos, issues where I accidentally left out a word, and various minor fixes (Helen instead of Karin for Chakwas first name, explaining why Jiong isn’t spelled like Jeong, so on and so forth.)
- Fix up retcon issues and continuity issues.
- Clear up and polish the work — make some things less angsty, or at least provide additional exposition.
As OSABC is already massive, this will probably expand it by another twenty to thirty thousand words. We’ll probably do one or two chapters a week — maybe more if people are interested.
If you would like to help these are the requirements:
- Functional brain
- Ability to access Google Docs
- Pictures of kittens
If you have all of these, either comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate.
While the actual chapter name will be different, the informal name is OPERATION NO, FUCK YOU IS A GO.
As STG files are easy to write and quick to produce, any other characters that you’d like to see one one?
And no, P. will not be getting one just yet. :p
After discussion with the Editing Gang and the poll, I have decided to open up a Patreon to defray costs for artwork, music, and other goals.
The Patreon Page is here : http://patreon.com/LogicalPremise
There are more details listed there, including reward levels and what not. Please keep in mind : You are not required to give anything.
You don’t have to be a Patron to access the forums.
You don’t have to be a Patron to be in the Editing Gang.
This is strictly voluntary. For those of you who would like to donate but don’t have the cash or ability to do so, comments on this post about things you could to do help would be appreciated.
If you know good artists, musicians, animators or the like, references to them would also be helpful.
The Next Chapter is being outlined.
First, the next STG File will be about Tela Vasir, per poll results
Second, I have a new poll up on my profile about Patreon after a discussion this morning that I would appreciate feedback on.
No idea when it will hit, but should be either tonight or tomorrow, unless they tell me it is crap drafted by a kindergardener high on acid.
EDIT: They said it was crap drafted by kindergardener high on acid but I published it anyway.
Also, messed up all the ellipses.
Maybe this one won’t take three months to get out the door.
I’ve made the last few tweaks to the outlines for the coming chapters.
It’s going to be bad, gentle readers. The working titles I have for the crescendo chapters are “Angstrofest of Blood” and “Vengeful Iron Sunset”.
A few more improvements and it will go out tomorrow morning — if you haven’t made edits or suggestions now would be the time to do so.
I still am not 100% comfortable with it, but I’m sure the gang will make it fantastic. It’s a talky non action chapter.
