Trent, you'll be glad to know that the scene that went missing during revisions that you asked about five times has returned. Between that and cutting scenes that don't need to be there, my chapter lengths are now officially All Over The Place.

Got to about page 190 today (and added 6 pages, and still have to go cut two, but that above-mentioned chapter length thing is stopping me from actually doing that). I wanted to reach 200, but these next ten pages have a bunch of minor changes that I don't have the brain for anymore.

Absolutely nothing else is going on in my life.

I just sent you mail! Not that, er, you'll see this, or that, because you're probably neck deep in working again. :)

beta/test readers
So.. how does one become a beta/test reader for you? Or do you have too many offers already?

Re: beta/test readers
Start off by having known me for ten or fifteen years... :)

Actually, once in a *great* while I'll post on my LJ looking for a couple of can-you-read-it-now readers (and then, yes, I get swamped), but I'm a little cautious in who I release electronic versions of my manuscripts to. I have a handful of people who have specific Things that they have issues with when they read (agrimony, above, for example, has this real thing about pacing, and so if I get notes from her saying "agh the pacing is awful" it probably is, and janne picks up on repetitive phrases), and it's very handy for me as a writer to have an idea of what areas my test readers are going to be looking at.

You have no idea how odd I find it to have people want to volunteer, though. :)

Re: beta/test readers
That makes me sound like a pacing fetishist!

Hang in there, hon. You'll get there and it'll be BRILLIANT!
