Groombridge Log status update
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:15:19 am »

First the bad news:

The comic will not continue. After the first chapter was finished, I hastily drew one page of chapter 2 but that was all. I haven't drawn anything for it since. Now is finally the time to publish that one page:


And here is the good news!

I have been doing something. I have written the same story in novel format. There are prologue + 5 chapters in total in this "part I" - that's 70 pages.

The prologue and first chapter are much like the comic, but not identical. I made some tweaks (specifically about the infamous telescope-episode which seemed to be a source of hatred).

So why did I tell you about it today? Because I finally finished it today!

But there still is something to do before I give the story to critics (you all). I need someone native in English to go through it. Even though I consider my English pretty good, there probably are some errors that a native can spot easily.

Do I have a volunteer? I'll have a chance to send the text to someone sometime at the beginning of next week.

So what's this story?  Is it just SCII in written format?  I'm a native English speaker and might be interested in reading it.
