Some of you may have been wondering where I have been the past few day, others may have been wondering what I could possibly be up to that no progress has happened on even planning volume 4. Well, here I am! Terrible grammar and all!
I spent most of the weekend looking through various peoples edits and trying to decide who would be best to be my new editor. In the end the decision was incredibly hard. I mean, most of you did incredibly well. Without being able to decide on who would best fit the role, I ended up picking a couple. ^.^
For everyone who I didn’t choose. Thank you so much for applying, you did some rather nice work and can be proud of it. The fact that you applied in the first place shows you have interest and I really appreciate it. If I do end up needing to look for another editor in the future, I hope you will all apply again.
Allow me to introduce the current list of editors and a little about them!
Vincent – The eldest and wisest of us all, slowly becoming a legacy. He is a being of very few words, and thoughts as to whether or not he descended from another plane of existence comes to question. He is that kind of existence.
genericIntent – The current editor in chief. In charge of all the day to day functions and overlooking edits. His keen eyes pick up every little sneaky shift between past and present tense that I place in my writing to the point where they have already started bleeding. I worry I may be developing a sadistic side.
Shieldbasher – He is the Shinichiro Tamaki from Code Geass. He doesn’t have a specific role or title, but we all know he is equally important to the team as the rest of us! A few words from him “Hi Readers, Shieldbasher here, as a new assistant editor for End Online. I’ll try my best to support this novel as much as I can. Please take care of me.”
Scott – The Master of the Blurb. He is a straightforward man whose creativeness inspires children around the world. Little is known about him, but I gladly welcome him to the team and look forward to his future help.
I believe we now have a full team of editors, people who are strong in their own individual ways and should help tidy up my work to a professional level.
As a matter of fact, over the past few days, genericIntent and Shieldbasher have done a full edit of chapter 19 (which should be updated tonight! Some minor, some major changes). The only person who didn’t join in was Vincent, who did the initial proofread, and Scott, who was the last to join us. We will all be slowly working backwards from chapter 19 as well, cleaning up the previous chapters for all future/repeat readers. ^.^
They made so many edits that google docs actually started to break. It was insane. They simply took to my work like tigers that have been starved for the past month! You should see these changes shortly from this post being created.
I am now leaving genericIntent in charge of accepting most edits without me looking over him as he has good judgement in the ways of grammar. While I look over it all I simply have no time to plan or write which is no good!
Once I update chapter 19, I will finally update the weekly update. I will also add another part to the ‘About me’ page if I can remember what I was thinking about ten minutes ago. You know how it is, one moment you have a particular thought, and then the next you simply can’t remember for the life of you!
Anyway, a great big welcome to the new editors!
