Done and almost done

I’ve finished writing Legion. Which is not to say, I’ll be publishing tomorrow. It means I’ve finished adding plot. Now I have to go through a couple of edit passes. I tend to use certain words too much: just, fairly, appear.. minimizing words. I see it as dry understatement, readers see it as wimpy. Sigh. Readers win.

I also need to scan for LY adverbs. Another problem of mine.

Anyway, should take a day or two, then I’ll be posting requests for beta readers. And while waiting for them to eviscerate my book, I need to finish the cover design. I found a really talented cover artist on kboards, but his prices are a little on the hefty side. I’ll have to see how my homegrown effort pans out. Maybe if worst comes to worst, I can give it to him as a model to work from.

But I’m on track for the end of the month, barring disasters or delays.

    Have you tried my new miracle(ly) product that makes you an overnight(ly) millionaire with women falling(ly) all over you(ly)?

    http://www.hemingwayapp.com/(ly)

    They have a web version, which I found a number of months ago, and a desktop version which I eagerly(legit) paid the $8ish bucks for.

    Talk about exponential(ly) loin-al(ly) growth…. best supplement ever.

    SERIOUSLY TRY IT OUT 🙂

    signed…. Your friend, Lee (god I kill myself-ly)

      Good grief. I almost deleted you unread. You’re TOO GOOD at imitating spammers.

      Yeah, I know about Hemmingway. It’s on my favorites. Guess I should make use of it. The big problem is that it doesn’t suggest alternatives (at least I don’t remember it doing so), and usually when I end up using a Bad Structure it’s because I can’t think of a good one that says the same thing.
