Writing Glitch #258

Today’s second glitch:

glitch284

Y’know, the way the first sentence is written in the original, it’s not you who died.

After you die, God informs you that there is no hell. Instead, the dead are sorted into six houses of heaven based on the sin they choose.

(I’m not going to touch the nonsensical nonsense of this paragraph…)

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.

    This glitch inspires all sorts of amusing ideas. It’s really funny.

    Subject change: I have a question about comments. How many are too many? When I find something interesting, entertaining, engaging, etc., I like to respond to it. However, I do not want to wear out my welcome or make a nuisance of myself. If you have a comment limit, please let me know and I will respect it.

    Finally, I apologize for my rant about the education video. It was an emotional response to an outsider disparaging public school education and offering his own solutions to make American schools great again. Sorry for being so grumpy. Please delete the comment if you do not want it on your blog. Thank you.
