updates with numbers

My clone-sibling tells me he’s now at about 25K words for The Madness Engine, the sequel to The Fallen (and book three in the series).  We are now even more into the ‘juggling multiple story-lines’ stage of writing, because secondary characters in this WIP connect it indirectly to two other series.  Big fun.

Also, someone rated The Fallen on Goodreads and gave it five stars.  *happy dance*

I haven’t accomplished a lot so far today, but I did update the Links page here to include even more of others’ blogs and articles about science fiction/fantasy and writing in general; current count is two hundred thirty-three, including more than forty from the blog of the awesome Veronica Sicoe.

Later, I may blog about how much I love subtle humor deriving from dramatic irony.

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
