Time For A Little Beta


Would that be a little beta or a lot beta? I guess that would depend on how long one drones on, huh? And that can be done here with ease. Maybe they would see it and run. Or maybe they would see it and stay. Or maybe they are dead so they can't see anything. Unless they are a ghost. But can ghosts see? See how this can spiral forever? Now we are going to get to it before we undo too much yarn.

If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why?

Well I think I'd go with someone who is rich and famous and then that way when they promoted the book they beta read then it would sell a bunch and I could retire. It can be anyone. I'm not too picky. What? Artistic integrity? Pffft can't eat that. Give me the money any day.

Dr. Seuss would be a fun one though. Maybe his ghost will come to play. Makes more dead than most do alive. But then he can't spend it until ghosts get legal status, so he may be waiting a while. There is an idea for you. The ghost that got legal status. Then the family could try to kill it again so they can get to keep the money. My ramble can produce stuff.

Any authors you would like to meet? Are you a ghost believer? What do you think would happen if ghosts became citizens and kept control of their assets?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

  1. Dr. Seuss would be perfect for you. You'd just have to remind him that the rhymes aren't always for kids...

  3. I’ve never had a ghost encounter, but know two people who have and they are quite reasonable folks otherwise, so I have to believe there’s something to it.

    1. Could be something to it, or maybe the wind just blew the wrong way lol

  4. What if they kept their assets and copyrights? Now that's an interesting question.

    1. Yeah. Could lead to a whole family fight big time

  5. I think Dr. Seuss would be the perfect match for you.

  6. I agree with everyone else. Dr. Seuss is a great choice for you!

  7. Dr. Seuss fits you to a "T" I think! No ghost encounters but if they became citizens, I would hope they would go out and vote and learn the language of the country they lived in!

  8. Yes, Seuss for you and Poe for me!

  9. A good choice of authors. A nice, kind, and generous person. And yes, there are some around.

  10. Definitely Stephen King for me. Dr. Seuss would be a fun one too, though.

  11. Dr. Seuss is perfect! And with all the books he's sold, he's probably rich, too. Trouble is, he's dead. Guess you'll have to go back in time for that one to work for you. :)

  12. Before you mentioned him, I thought of Dr. Seuss for you. I think his spirit is in you already. Poor guy (him, not you). Smiles.

    1. You should be glad that you are haunted
      It means by Dr. Seuss you're wanted.

    2. Wanted but no dough
      That's a bit low

  13. I didn't think about a Beta reader promoting for me. Interesting.
    I think Jon Krakauer would be fun to meet. Not that our books have much in common, but I think we'd get along.
    Of course I believe in ghosts.
    I don't know if including a link would knock out my comment, so I'll put it in another comment. But have you seen UPLOAD on Amazon video? It sort of touches on your question about death not stopping the need for money.

    2. Yeah, you never know. Could work with promo.

      I watched it back a month or so ago. Rather fun show indeed.

  14. Love Dr. Seuss and I bet he has a naughty side too - no doubt a discussion of poo, he would not rue.

  15. It would be fun to meet Dr. Seuss. I bet he and you would hit it off :-)

  16. "Makes more dead than most do alive" ~ LOL! I've loved Dr. Seuss since I was a little girl. I should have guessed that you would pick Seuss. A number of close relatives of mine have met ghosts, and it's hard for me to discount their experiences because I know them. But me ~ no. All the best! Take care!

    1. lol it is sad that dead he makes more. Sure is a winner though. No ghosts here, but you never know I guess.

  17. Time For A Little Beta
    Dr Seuss likened charisma
    No ghosts
    As a host
    But lots of spectacular drama

  18. Yep, Dr. Seuss is the perfect fit for you. I'd have you and Bryan again. You were both great. I'd say Nelson DeMille because he's sarcastic like me but he'd leave in too much of my snark. Maybe Stephen King but he likes to drone on and on and on...so he'd leave in too much of my writing and my books would be as long his.

    1. haha have to watch the snark and the droning on and on and on and on. Stephen King sure can do that. A winner at our sea works too.

  19. It think you've chosen the perfect beta reader as a partner! He's the cat's meow.

  20. I would love to meet Mark twain but he’s kind of dead

  21. Dr. Seuss would would be fun. Not meeting any ghosts. Hope all is well Pat.

    1. No ghosts is good. As well as can be here, hopefully same at your sea.

  22. Dr Seuss and the "Cat in the Hat" it seems so appropriate for you. You could always spin
    a good rhyme or two. How are you doing? Robert Frost comes to mind for me. I visited his
    house once and walked the grounds. I did feel it was haunted a tad.

    1. Hmm I might pick Shakespeare or Poe depending on my mood

    2. Three good ones indeed. Even if they have to haunt to be seen these days lol

  23. Well, this sure beats Dave the Wendy's Man like your last pick!! LOL Dr. Seuss is a fun one. I'm not sure who I would pick. The only author that I've ever read all of her novels is Jane Austen, but I don't think we'd have anything in common. My favorite childhood author is Roald Dahl, but I'm not sure about that one either. How about Chris Hemsworth as a visual aid? :)

    1. Yeah, she may be a bit different. What's wrong with Dave the Wendy's man? lol not sure visual aids count.

  24. I love your reasoning for picking someone rich and famous to be your beta reader. Perfect ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh yeah, Dr. Seuss would be purrfect. He'd probably also fit in the rich and famous category.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Dr. Seuss would be a great choice for you. I've been a beta reader for a couple of authors...it's a lot of work.

    ReplyDelete
  27. S.E. Hinton, Beverly Cleary or Judy Blume for me. Those authors shaped my love of reading when I was a kid. It'd be fun to work with them (even though I am not a writer). :)

    1. Can still work with them in other ways indeed.

  28. Ha, ha, Marvellous Pat. Dr Seuss ! Ghosts getting their assets back ! Horrible ! Going through all that careful planning to get away with murder to be snuffed in a legal technicality ! No, no, no, ! No go ! Have an inspiring Indian Summer. If you have any rich beta readers to spare, send one my way .....

    1. Legality of it all would sure keep lawyers in even more business lol

  29. Definitely some book ideas hidden in there...
    But also key words if you are aware...
    Remember beta tapes, before 8-track?
    Or when drones weren't Amazon delivery hack?
    Or when yarn was a sweater and not feedback?
    And Seuss could poetically describe
    Your rhyming adventures without a bribe!
