 23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

It depends on the era…..Nowadays, my rule of thumb is WIP are posted to my fanfic journal. Completed fics get posted to AO3. And as much as I love the Blue Sun Room and Cortex for having started off there, it’s too much of a pain in the ass to code for all the other sites.


24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

At least 1…I’m usually too impatient for more than that. (I wanna post when I finish for instant gratification). All of my betas have been absolutely lovely. Me being a beta? Whoo boy, I have a few there. Pro tip: if you actually get a beta, this does not mean they will turn your stream of consciousness writing into grammatically correct, legible prose. Please at least use period punctuation, or run it through grammar check first if you are that grammar illiterate. Otherwise baby fic bunnies die….

Actually week hasn't been that bad, just comedy of miscommunication errors with teams...Sigh. Though I don't know what possessed the account person on our new business pitch (who is probably 50) to throw a ball of aluminum foil at me at the end of the meeting. Fortunately I wear glasses so I only got a scratch on my cheek, but wow. 1) out of character for her. 2) what the hell? I mean yes, I've had jokes of throwing paperclips at an old boss and stuff, but this was just out of the blue.

Had departmental happy hour last night, which, ugh. I mean, all was fine and everything, but yeah, as much as I want the high end local bar to be okay for me, my body was so not happy with their version of a cheese steak. It didn't taste that good either. Though the 2 rounds of fries also probably didn't help. Not a horrible reaction but by the time I got home all I wanted to do was find a way to drink a ton of water while laying flat if possible (which isn't) so instead I just passed out on the couch till I woke up from pain of a charlie horse. And no, I didn't drink that much - 1 glass of tequila over 2 hours while actually having enough food. I wasn't even buzzed.

Needless to say I woke up this morning in pain and no desire to wake up really. And still had to hurriedly put my house in rights so that the landlord can get in with the repairman this morning. Sigh. But managed and I won't even be too late for work. We'll just ignore the pile of clean clothes occupying half of my sectional. :)
