Update #402892 : Cybernetic Boogaloo Edition

I’ve managed to feel good enough to work a little bit (a very, very little bit) on some things.

  • I’m roughly 1200 words into an Ahern doc on the quarians.
  • I’m at about 3000 words on the next TWCD chapter.
  • I’m fiddling with a chapter to No Single Raindrop

Right now, there are a large number of chapters up for editing for the rewrite of OSABC. I’d like people to focus on that while I’m down, since it’s easier for me to work with that stuff. If we could knock down 10 chapters a week we could easily have the whole thing done and start on ATTWN (which also needs attention in a few places).

Back surgery is going to have to wait. I’m talking to my doctor and my chiropractor (board certified, former sports medical professional, thinks reiki is shit and that homopaths should be jailed — you know, my kind of chiropractor) and they want to do some ATLAS adjustments and try to line my spine back up and see if that doesn’t reduce pressure on the disc.

The *good* news is nothing is fused yet and that most of the fractures, while sizeable, are not expanding. I’ve been put on several supplements (calcium and strontium, FDA approved stuff only, I’m not wasting time with fucking herbs).

The bad news is that I’m not sure how long it will take before I feel better.

Not helping events : I loaned my sister a car, the Chrysler 300 that belonged to my wife. First she got it towed because she let her idiot boyfriend drive it. Now it’s been in an accident and the insurance company is telling me it is totalled.

Just what I needed. In any event, work is … proceeding. Hopefully (as stated) I can get the next chapter out by late August, as my focus is on not straining myself.

If you are on the ‘regular’ editing gang and would like to join the “OSABC editing gang” just request approval, as I have the list of emails. Anyone who is not currently on the Gang that I don’t know needs to please email me directly at viley@att.net.

  1. Regarding rewrites, i kinda want to ask why bother with it. I don’t usually do stuff like this in my fics since most of the time, it tends to piss the readers off due the changing information. Something might get changed that may give inconsistency to the later chapters.

  2. Simple. There are a ton of typos and missing words in the work. Not to mention, some things changed over time in minor ways or need references earlier on in the work.

    The point of a rewrite is to polish and add, not change the basics.
