Terrible Writing Advice – Chapter 36: HOLIDAY SPECIALS

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the net
Not a commenter was typing, not even to leave a threat;
The subscribers were staring at their screens with care,
In hopes that Terrible Writing Advice would cover Holiday Specials on a dare;
When out a notification icon there arose a such a clatter,
The commenters sprang from their let’s play to see what’s the matter.
When what to their wondering eyes did appear,
But a horrible wreck of a video, oh dear.
But when they heard JP exclaim, ere he dove out of sight–
“Happy Christmas to all, suckers, because I made this video out of spite!”

Lasers and shields still won’t ensure your survivability as well as being the protagonist, but it can’t hurt.

Assorted Updates: Aeon Legion book 1 fixes, Terrible Writing Advice hits 200k

There were a number of errors in my book, Labyrinth. Thankfully, I finally fixed them and replaced them with all new errors! Those who purchased the kindle version should have it automatically update. Unfortunately, the print/dead tree version through amazon and Barnes and Noble will be taken off sale until I receive a proof copy, but should be back up in a couple of weeks.

Also, Terrible Writing Advice hit 200k subscribers today! I’m still kind of shocked my channel grew that big. Happy 200k TWA!
