Meta Betas

So that beta reader mailing list they put on CP is like the single best thing ever because it might as well be called "somebody awesome will read your story for almost as much time as you took to write it, edit it for free, and then thank you for sending it."

There about five of you, but especially Monika Lain-Shaw, not sure if you'll ever read this post, but thank you so much for patching up my crap! Seriously, you are the best.

Feedback about what is bad is what I expected because I also knew it was bad. Cookie cutter dialogue, too many of the same phrases/descriptions in multiple stories, the list goes on, but the cool thing is that if you can not do much for a couple years and then start back with something that isn't complete garbage, then maybe you're faring alright.

I'm thinking about jumping away from all this series stuff and doing some standalones since I need about five or six of them anyway. At least like 30-40k wordcount, which will take awhile.

It's all good in the hood though.
