So, my brain CONSTANTLY messes up Thunder Ridge / Lightning Ridge. Hint: Lightning Ridge is correct. But because we say THUNDER and LIGHTNING, in that order, my brain swaps them.
In Plaidypus… I made this error.
Nobody caught it. Especially not me (because while I know better, I DO NOT correct it, it doesn’t appear wrong, my brain just HELPFULLY does this thing.)
There were 20+ people working on the book and we all failed to identify I’d fucked it up.
I thought about fixing it in the book. I am STILL thinking about it. (It’s a pain in the ass and costs money to fix esp the print editions… I’ll do it next week or so.) But I also have this urge to put a funny from the author note in the back explaining how this shit comes to be.
My brain just DEMANDS it be Thunder.
My brain is stupid and wrong.
P.S.: Oops. I’ll get around to fixing it, I swears.
Please be kind to your local authors. We’re not okay.
