*faceplam*

On the heels of bitching about people getting it wrong, just going over the next bit of my story and noticed I'd written where but I'd meant were. Oy!! *covers face*

ETA: Also, I cannot spell. Plam. WTF?

But you *caught* it. That puts you way ahead of those "my deathless prose doesn't need a beta" people.

(Is the subject line intentional or just more beautiful irony?)

Heeeeeeeeee!
But the point, bb, the *point* is - you caught it, and fixed it.
*twirls you*

We all do it. My beta caught an access when I meant assess just a few days ago. And that was on some writing I started about 2 years ago, and I'd read it more times than I'd care to admit over that time period and hadn't caught it. Sometimes we look at things so much we can't see it. That's why it's good to read, re-read, re-read again, put it away for a bit and re-read it again. And having a beta to be another set of eyes for the stuff we still miss after all that is invaluable.

But you caught it, so that's all that matters :D By the way, I really enjoyed the first part. I just couldn't think of an adequate comment to leave that said you blew my mind and made me wish I could write even half as well as you. I sincerely hope you are able to complete the fic. Amnesia!Dean is my favorite trope and biggest weakness.

Oh, yes! I like to post it private because I always find stuff that I don't see in the doc. Like the title of this post...would have helped to preview it first. *face palm*, lol!

Oh my goodness!! Thank you so much for the praise--more than I deserve, by far!

Somehow, even stuff that gets past a beta jumps out at you once it's posted and onscreen somewhere. Something about the different format, font, whatever.

But yes, everybody' right, you did catch it, and you're responsible enough to make it right!

I confess I've done the same thing--more than a *year* after a thing was posted to AO3. Sometimes you see what you expect to see, what you meant, and it just isn't visible to you, until there's been some distance.

Right? Every time I reread something I find a new mistake.

Like the subject line of this post....
