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….
