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.
