Ah, Continuity

*headdesk*

I re-watched Tough Love this morning to remind myself of the story line so that I didn't mess anything up while writing the sequel to Whispers, and I realized that I had already messed things up *grumble*.  Here I was thinking that Buffy's meeting with Dawn's principal about Dawn's absenteeism had already happened before Intervention, but apparently, nope, so oopsie?  Fortunately it was an easy fix - changed three or four sentences in the first paragraph of chapter four.  Author's note left to indicate why, but, grrr, I hate that I did that.

*shrugs* It happens. At least it was an easy fix. :)

yes, thank goodness! I'm also mentally creating a list of requirements for that beta I'm planning on acquiring very soon . . .

LOL - one of them being a good memory/knowledge of canon events? I sooo need that in my betas. I'm terrible about remembering stuff, and too lazy to look it up just in case. About the only time I look something up is if I'm aware that I'm probably screwing with timelines - then I'll go take a look somewhere. The rest of the time, I rely on what I remember. Never a good idea...

Why yes, that would be one of them! I do tend to look things up but this bit I completely missed - probably because that whole chapter was added on after I had most of the rest of the story planned and so it skipped my research radar.

well if that's the most serious mistake you make with canon then you'll get many cookies and kisses from your readers! i hope you haven't fretted too much about it :). i'm so excited for a sequel :D!

Lol, no, after a brief panic this morning at about 730 am, I jumped out of bed and re-wrote the thing and am feeling much better about it.

As for the sequel, I've just finished the outline and plan to write a bunch tonight on my break at work.
