Listening to: The Mountain Goats, “Alpha Rats Nest”
Sometimes, when I’m reviewing notes by beta readers, I’ll have little arguments with them. Note: they are not actually, physically present during these arguments. Sometimes in my head, sometimes out loud. It goes something like this:
“No, really, it’s better the way I wrote it. Just trust me on this one. Seriously. No, I don’t care how much you insist, I know what I’m doing. Oh, what’s that? Well, you may have a point there, but still. Well, yeah. That’s true. All right, all right, fine. Have it your way.”
Am I the only one? Yes? Okay. Just checking.
