GGOMGG is gonna be a real thing.

That acronym stands for The Grumpy, Grouchy Old Man’s Guide to Grammar, a book I’ve jokingly talked about writing. It’ll be perfect for everyone who likes Lynne Truss’ panda-grammar book (Eats, Shoots & Leaves — it’s a classic, beloved by grammar ninjas everywhere) but cannot help feeling sometimes that she’s just too nice.

Actually, GGOMGG will be much like the “grammar rants” I post here on my blog, only more… orderly. I mean, organized. With fewer tangents in the rants. Probably. The levels of sarcasm, snark, and angry hand waving ought to be about the same, though. The point is, it’s going to be a real thing, not just something I threaten everyone with.

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.
