Anyone else interested in Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods?

Just been following some information on it. Despite the fact that I hate Slasher Films, I think this one might be funny, as Joss seems to be doing a send up of some of the sterotypes and cliches of these type of movies.

I think, with Joss humour in it, it could be fun!

Anyone think that Jensen would be just as tall as Jared if he didn't have bow legs?

The true unsung Heroines of fanfiction is a good beta. I mean a good one, I've had my fair share of bad ones in the past to know the difference, but I will not go into that.

There is more to a beta than spelling, punctuation and grammar, but that is what a lot of people look for, and yes, me too. for a various reasons, I need a lot of help with these subjects. I'm not an easy author to beta for when it comes to this

A) I'm slightly word blind

B) I missed a lot of primary school because of ill health

C) When I went to Secondary School, it was during the time they were experimenting, and not using punctuation or grammar.

The Godsend of a Good Beta )

The Good Beta can make your fic into something to be proud of, can win awards with, get recommendations with and be an enjoyable read. The author needs to remember that, despite all that, they are still the one who will stand or fall by the work, and still have to take responsiblity for it. Talk to your beta, ask advice, listen to them, but it is still your work.
