    Guest! Jeni Chappelle checks the facts! Season Finale, Part Two

    It's the season finale! I had a great talk with Jeni Chappelle who checked all my crazy facts. We talk about the advice I give on a regular basis and whether she, a professional editor, agrees with my offerings. Our talk was so great, in fact, that we had to break it into two episodes! Here is part two of the season finale of Beta Reader Bits!

    People do things: Agency and Emotional Connection

    People do things: Agency and Emotional Connection

    Today let me tell you what you’re gonna do. I’m your best friend, so I can tell you what to do. You’re going to get up in the morning and get dressed, but first take a shower. Go to the coffee shop and lay a wet kiss on that barista you have a crush on. the one that puts hearts in the coffee. Just do it. Go. It doesn’t matter how YOU feel about it. Just do it.
    And if you do exactly what I say, you have no agency. Today we’ll talk about characters who don’t think for themselves and how you can help them. Characters anonymous, here we come!
