BBB Nathan pic and a little fic update-iness
Friday, December 15, 2006

I had the wonderful experience of meeting one of my beta readers last weekend after attending the Flan That Wasn't and Then Was Again - which, by the way, was incredible but will be reported on elsewhere so I won't go into it here... except I will include this:

[Simpson's bully kid voice] Hah-ha! [/voice] I stood next to Nathan!

Anyway, I met with my fabulous beta person and told her the full deal I have planned for BackStories, some of which she has read already, and she agreed that I'm *insane*. This fic could easily be worked on for another full year! Any of you that have read my stuff know that I'm all into the characters and how they interact (um, mostly as regards the Captain), and what I'm trying to do with this newest fic is really, really challenging. I can't just beat the keyboard for a while and be done. There must be reads and rereads and redos and lots of thinking and more rereads and redos and beta-reads and redos, etc etc etc... before I can pull it off like I want to.

But... do not despair... Ms Beta also had suggestions on how I can move along a little faster. And really, as far as word count, I think I'm at least half done, so maybe it's not as bad as I think.

Really, I'm dying to get this fic done, because Ms. Beta is as choosy as they come, and if she liked it I know you all will too! But I won't give it to you bad.

Can I just promise that it'll be worth the wait?

Embers - I wish! :p

OK - I don't really mean that. I've decided I like my bf better! Kisses to Mark (if he ever reads this - not a flan unfortunately!)

Well now...I gots me some new motivation to help with the beta-ing of this massively crazy epic;)

that is a great photo...actually it doesn't look like a group photo at all, it looks like you had a little private rendezvous in the back of the room! LOL

He was definitely pretty. And quite soaked as we all stood out in the rain to get pics with him.

And no - we will simply not wait a year (not without serious whining!) for you to post the next part of your story! Don't make me throw a tantrum! LOL!

You should post the pic with all of us that you took. That's probably the best pic of me that came out all weekend! :)

MSG - I was a little too overloaded with input to give him a proper sniff - damn, I wish I'd thought of that! ;)

I did get to wrap an arm. I wasn't so tacky as to try a goose - which I take it a few girls did on Saturday night. Poor guy, getting groped like that!

Glad to see you got to stand next to Nathan. So great, what everyone did to make that weekend work.

Thank you for the BackStories update. Take the time you need to make it what it needs to be. Just hearing that the story is still being actively pursued fills me with warm and happy anticipation!

Anyway, your description so far sounds great. I've always been a fan of how tightly woven and interconnected your fics are, with rich character complexity and artful presentation. I'm confident it will indeed be worth the wait.
