I am overwhelmed!
When I posted that I was ‘hiring’ new betas, I received 106 emails from volunteers.
Of the 106 of the those who volunteered, only 21 were available to beta any/all of the stories I’m currently working on… Since I’m naturally *blonde (*prone to spontaneous idiocy) I used that to help trim down the selection.
When I sent out the latest chapter of Meanwhile to them all, 14 sets of Beta notes were returned…
My Beta thanks for this chapter go to (in no particular order)
Like I said, I’m overwhelmed. I was actually worried that I’d have a hard time finding someone willing to work with me.
I’m in the process of whittling the abundant mass of helpfulness to a more manageable number, I’m thinking 3 since I’m pretty sure Rolling Stone doesn’t have 21 editors, but I have to thank everyone who volunteered.
Now, with all that being said and done, Meanwhile #22 should be surgically perfect, technically speaking.
Because I didn’t have a beta (or maybe just a brain) at the time, I forgot to post the picture of Sookie’s ring in Meanwhile. The picture was made way back when I ‘made’ Eric’s ring, so it really was just an oversight. For anyone interested, it’s been added in line with the chapter (#20).
So here it is, thanks to a metric ass ton of endlessly appreciated assistance…
