Editing status: boss fight

I’m about two-thirds of the way through the manuscript, at least.

I would have had this one done months ago, but various real-life circumstances (mostly health problems) got in the way of me even working on it. (You know me: usually, I’d complete the first round of edits on a mere 130K-word manuscript in a few weeks.) I’m still nowhere near my usual speed and efficiency, but I’ve gotten through more than three chapters today, which is a lot more than I’d been doing.

One of the scenes I edited today (still haven’t gotten through the aftermath of it, though) is sort of an actual boss fight. Fans of the series tend to get worried when something comes along that’s able to seriously damage Drake, right? Well, friends, he’s seriously damaged. Could be worse — he could be dead again.


About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live 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 eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
