Ch. 21 Update #2

I am so excited that you all are finding my journal entries now!

The chapter clocked in at 2799 words (before edits). My four betas have it now, one has gotten back to me. The other three will hopefully do so during the day today. But I think I can safely assume that an update will be posted this evening (sooner if I magically find time).

Since you all agreed I was a tease (and I love it), here's another sample, from a little later in the chapter:

---

"She didn’t know how long she stood there, getting totally drenched and not caring, but she suddenly felt a pair of arms wrap around her from behind. Of course, Clark would have heard her come out here, would have heard her begin to bawl like a child. He had probably been reluctant to disturb her, but couldn’t help but comfort her."

Ta ta! Have a good day everyone

Believe it or not, I do. I like LOTS of eyes on my work. Everyone seems to catch something different. One of them also works with me from outline to finished product, helps me brainstorm, and goes over the wording with a fine-toothed comb. Another gives me reaction feedback and possible wording changes to refine it. The other two catch grammatical mistakes and spelling mostly.

So, yes. Four!

Oh... okay!
lol I'm sure they finally just want to read your story at first -____-
Can I be you beta too ????? :P I'm kidding! But I have to admit, I'm a little bit impatient! ^^' Forgive me!

LOL! I actually had someone ask me that - can I beta, if it means I'll get to read it that much sooner? Hee.

Anyway, 3 of these 4 are people that I befriended in the Spidey fandom, and so they signed on without ever reading a word of this one! One of them has been with the story since it was a vague idea and a list of eight triggers for Lois' deja vu. She and I have probably written twice to three times as much correspondence on each chapter as the actual chapter. Ask alamo_girl80 - I let her read everything from one of the chapters (which had 14 pages of notes on a 5-page chapter). She was shocked, but agreed that it was incredibly helpful. I would tell you who this is, but she likes her privacy, and isn't an LJ user.

lol, well, okay then!
But anyway, you know, I was just kidding! I won't be your beta because I'm really bad in english, so!
But just continue to tease us, I like it! haha! ;-)

I think I'm going to add you as a friend. Now that you're updating a little with more than just the story (which I could have gotten from your posts at Clois), I'd really enjoy being your friend here. :) I hope that's okay with you.

That's just fine! I think I might already have added you... if not, I will. :)

*Laughs* Really? I don't think you have, but I wouldn't know if someone listed me unless they commented on my journal. *Shrugs*

Okay, I hadn't yet, but now I have.

I don't have time to peruse your journal now, but I saw right away... a Scrubs fan!! Woo-hoo!

Wish I could write humor, because I would be all over Scrubs fan-fic. Do you have recommendations? I've been looking for good ones.

*Screams bloody murder* You like Scrubs? I LOVE YOU! I seem to connect especially well with my Scrubs friends. ^_~ Of course, that's just a generalization, and it doesn't mean that I connect better than with anyone else, because that's not true, but...

I'll shut up, now. I ramble. *Laughs*

Actually, I've never read any Scrubs fics, before. I never wanted to come across some bad fanfics, 'cause that could ruin things... but now that you've mentioned it, I DO feel like some Scrubs fanfiction right now... If I find something, I'll post the links for you. ^_~ *Grins* Awesome idea! *Drifts back into the Abyss*
