Not Just Another Grouchy Grammarian

Musings about language, books, grammar, and writing in general

Your Grammarian is Taking a Break this Week…

…because she is editing a manuscript that is actually delightful.

The writer has done much right — a very strong opening that drew me in even before I got to the story proper; a POV character that is not perfect, but is interesting, and in interesting circumstances; support characters that are fully-fleshed out; showing rather than telling. ¬†Honestly, it’s the first time I have ever edited a manuscript where I am putting in more comments about why something is perfect than why the small things that aren’t need to be tweaked.

This project is truly one of those that gets savored while worked on, and I am really looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Anyway, I want to get bak to it, so see you when the editing is done!

    • Hi londenberg! Nice to see you in my little corner of the blogosphere. I’m kind of busy with looming deadlines at the moment, but your book looks like something dark fantasy readers would enjoy very much.
