My name is Keira and I'm fed up with the beta process.

Don't get me wrong, I totally love my betas. They're great. I just hate the process itself.  

I have to ask myself, who in fandom decided that beta was a thing? Who thought -- oh, I'm getting free stuff to read but this author really should do a bunch of extra work to make sure my free entertainment doesn't have any typos!

I'm currently in beta for my QB fic. I mean, like I'm on part 2 of 6 in that process. I just finished Darkly Loyal and it's twice the length of my QB. If I actually put that in beta -- it wouldn't be ready to post until probably April. Fuck that noise.

You know, you don't have to use a beta if you don't want to. When I was writing I very rarely used betas. I would ask for specific help if I was stuck on something, but that's it.

You've been writing for years in a ton of fandoms and you can post without a beta anytime you want.

I am the princess. I have spoken.
