Having to do some rethinking and shuffling of the outline to make things fit. I’m going to try for a early draft — maybe — this weekend.
Outline is mostly done, first rough draft should be ready by this weekend for the Editing Gang to start going over.
This isn’t a firm timeline since there’s the chance I will be sidelined by work.
Thank you for those who have volunteered to help rewrite/fix/unfuck OSABC.
I’m interested in people’s thoughts about how this should happen:
- I can put out a chapter at the beginning of a week (Monday) and pick it up Saturday or Sunday, which allows people to choose their own time to edit or
- I can put it out on a Saturday morning and have an official ‘edit block’ of time for publication on Monday, which allows for more interaction with editors.
Which would be more convenient?
In TWCD news, no, haven’t started the next chapter yet. Links for the outline will go up on the Patreon page when done. There is another Patreon Status report up there as well.
The Editing Gang is a group of unrewarded, unpaid volunteer editors who take each chapter of crap I write and massage it using magic and a proper command of punctuation, spelling and grammar into a product people can read without being distracted by broken sentences and errors.
The last chapter started life as an 8,000 word piece of shit not fit to display alongside SI Wrex/Tali lemonfics. Through days of their hard work it has been transformed into a nineteen thousand word masterpiece.
Half of the credit for the improvements you see in ATTWN and most of the credit for improvements in TWCD over the first book should go to them, not me.
The chapter will come out soon — I want all hands to have a chance to go over it and provide feedback. I’ll need a couple of days before I get cracking on the outline of the next one, and then we’ll see how quick I can crank out transition chapters until we get to Ilium.
Again, Editing Gang — thank you sincerely.
