*posts chapter*

*checks page to make sure chapter hasn’t transformed into 100% typos*

*refreshes to check for reviews*

*refreshes again*

*resolves to go to bed and not check until morning*

*goes to bed, turns on phone, checks for reviews*

Yup

…awkwardly true

*discover typo five months later*

*cry*

*writes complete story*

*Goes back for final read through/edit of story. Starts fixing little things that could be ‘better.’ Accidentally expands story by 50%*

*still misses the damn typo*
