Sickly Monday

Came down with a cold, or something, yesterday, so decided to stay home. Nin built a new shelf unit yesterday since we had piles of books everywhere, so I'm entertaining myself by alphabetizing CDs.

I did finish my latest fic Friday night. TamTam is betaing it for me, so hopefully it will be up and ready to read sometime this week.

Betaing? Am I just ignorant or did I miss something? I don't know that word. Please help? Oh, I guess I could look it up in the dictionary, huh?

Sorry :) As in Beta Reading. A fandom/fanfic term. You get someone to beta read your story after you've done to point out anything stupid, or grammar errors and such. Back in the day, I'd have several people look over my fic, but now I'm down to Tam. Lost touch with all the others over the years.

Thanks. I don't feel so stupid now. :)
