Self thinks her most important current relationship is with her beta.
That is, she sort of thinks she’s found a beta, though the beta has four other WIPs of her own to get through, not to mention she has a very young kid at home. Not to mention she’s writing two Halloween-related drabbles. Not to mention she’s writing a sequel to the sexiest Vampire Peeta fan fic of all time!
Self just found out her beta lives in a completely different time zone: she’s three hours ahead of self.
It’s really useful to have a beta, because a beta is the best sounding board. The best.
When you’re writing fan fic, your story becomes 10x better if you have a beta.
When her beta doesn’t answer self’s messages, she feels bereft.
Which leads self to:
Last night, some young women in the apartment across the way were screeching and laughing raucously. Self had to wonder how girls could have that much fun, just talking. Then, at around 2 a.m., she heard something heavy land against a window. Probably thrown from an adjacent building. Nothing broke, but suddenly all sound stopped, just like that. And didn’t resume. Well, that was very efficient.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
