So…I am back in play for this year’s NaNo. I’ve been adding characters to my Story Bible for the last two years, but don’t really have much in the way of a plot. Fortunately, I don’t need one. I spent the last two months proofreading and helping to half-ass edit my friend’s 2014 NaNoWriMo project. Not being a professional editor, or even a very good proofreader, I’m a little nervous for the reviews of her book on that front. I can just see it now on Amazon:

Holy shit, this author needs to get an editor! There are grammar and punctuation mistakes everywhere! My five-year old can do a better editing job than this! I like exclamation points a whole fucking lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah.

But here’s the book, and you can pre-order it for delivery to your Kindle on September 9, 2016.

Resurrection by Sophia McGregor

So what the hell does that have to do with NaNoWriMo 2016? Well, other than my friend writing the third book in the Horrors of Ivory Tower series (she wrote Book Numero Dos for last year’s NaNo), I am writing a mother fucking script for Resurrection. All the work is done for me! Plot, characters, dialogue. All I have to do is totally fuck her story up with a crappy screen adaptation! Brilliant. Work smarter, not harder.

You will notice, if you clicked the link to her book, that I’m listed as an editor. Oh, my dear Sophia…I’m flattered that you think that highly of me. But to be honest, this was really my job:
