Chapter: Spying

A deeply downtrodden person sits at her desk surrounded by crumpled parchment. Deeply disturbed at the happenings of the last few days and anxiously awaiting the reply that must come. She worries about the great horned owl she has just sent will it return with aid? Or will it be shot down on sight.

If the message is coming through please help me


The Mentor was sitting at his/her desk, it had been a long day. The Fan fic writers had always had horrible grammar and there run on sentences would drive her batty. As she bent low to add another parchment to the to many corrections pile, which happened to sitat the bottom of her/his garbage can. She heard a flutter of wings as a great horned owl swooped down into her/his office. She unraveled the letter quickly and hopefully, casting her eyes at the first three words she new it was going to be a long day. She sat down at her desk and began to read.

I need your help on this most mentally fixating problem
I do not know how to contact any one from here


she/he read on

For the past 3 days I have been diligently working on a fic, My first fic ever. I have attempted about 5 hundred times to submit this fic when I realized it was my formatting at approximately 4 am I finally got it across but this morning it has disappeared from my archive.

I don't know how to get a hold of anyone in here and decided this was my best course of action. Please help me, It really is driving me quite and irreversibly crazy at the moment and I cannot rest until I have overcome this problem.

If you understand my predicament I would love your aid


anxiously awaiting your reply
The most frustrated Lobena


Author's Response: What it sounds like is that you need a beta reader. A beta reader goes through your fic and fixes things like grammar and punctuation. Most stories really need betas in order to be accepted here at MNFF. I know mine certainly did! Without my betas, my fics wouldn’t have stood a chance at being accepted (in case any of them are reading – a huge shout out and many hugs to y’all). If you don’t feel comfortable getting a beta reader, may I suggest that you have a friend or family member read over your fic several times. It could do a world of good!! Good luck! PS – don’t feel too bad about rejection letters. I know that I have received more rejections than acceptances. But that only makes you feel that much better when a fic is accepted!! :D
