This one time at Writer's Camp…
Too Much Gloat
It never ceases to amaze me just how much an author will research just for one freaking line in a book…
I actually got to utter this sentence tonight while working on Kaiju Armageddon. I mean, between researching the vagus nerve and then radio wave transmission to Ceres and the asteroid belt, I’ve really messed with the NSA tonight (oh, and my peek at where Camp David was on Google Maps probably made them squirm a bit as well). Ah well. I’d shout “For science!” but it’s more like “For Death and Destruction In Page-Turning Action!”
Hey, I never do things by halves. My science may be weird at times, but it (usually) works. Hell, look at Corruptor. I talked about using VR to treat PTSD over ten years ago (yeah, book came out four years ago, but it was finished in 2004).
Anyway, the final proof of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn was turned it this weekend. Thanks to my coauthor for actually looking it over, since I was at the point that I was going to find this editor and do bad things to their flower bed. Murder World: Kaiju Darkness, for those interested, is being plotted when I’m not writing Kaiju Armageddon.
Heh. You know, it’s kind of funny. I had a college professor tell me that I never was able to grasp the meaning of some author’s stories and it was a good thing I was a History major because this writing thing wasn’t for me. Hold up, let me gloat for a moment… one… more… okay, done.
Okay, back to work. I want you people to see just what craziness Eric and I are throwing at you next. In order to do that, I need to actually complete this book. Gloating is not healthy.
