"No Such Thing as Absolution," the next story in the "Adaptations" 'verse, will be online tomorrow.  I'm posting today because I want everyone to appreciate my beta reader, [livejournal.com profile] resourceress7, who made this possible.

How?  With twenty-nine hours total of line-by-line discussion and analysis, in face of sleep deprivation and my overzealous love of semicolons.  We brainstormed.  We debated.  We had so much fun.  And this piece is now as close to perfect as it can be made.  Together, a linguist and an English lit major, alike in obsessive attention to detail, have determined that every word is in its correct place and pulling its weight.

You should also know that I never attempted medical fic before "Adaptations" because I knew I'd get caught up in researching the individual leaves on the trees, and the forest would never be written.  In her function as co-researcher, [livejournal.com profile] resourceress7 organizes everything we learn about SCIs and the management thereof, enabling me keep it straight.  So I can pull medical fact into the stories I write without any appearance of effort, but I have tables and timelines making my 'verse go round.

I'm a good writer.  Having a good editor is improving my work considerably, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to grow.
