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.

BAH.

I do like to use my betas because I sometimes write things that don't make sense to anyone but me it seems. But then I've gotten better at that as well. I know that everyone is different but my thought is always, it's free entertainment and no matter what I still get people bitching about mistakes even if I have THREE different people go over it so why add that headache when people are going to bitch anyway.
