An Author needs a Beta

Post by sasahara17 on Wed 8 Jul 2009 - 3:34

Hey again.

I haven't finished BIG yet since real life obligations are bogging me down, but I have a bunch of other manuscripts that need reading.

I have one Ga-Rei fic (tragedy/angst). Frankly, it's sub-par since I wrote it on the spur of the moment. I'm really not joking on how rough it is. Everytime I read it there's another spelling error, gramar mistake and... why the hell are there so many commas? Anyway since I;m busy, I figure I'll be a lazy bastard and get someone else to help me fix it up. Prefeably someone who can critizise every few lines. 'Great job' seems a bit underwelming when I know it could be so much better (An unnamed beta, who helped me with an as of yet unpublished FSN draft, basically told me I sucked and then proceeded to help me hammer it into shape. Great guy).

I'd initially given it to a beta a few months ago, but I think he's completely forgotten about me. So any takers?

I could use a beta too. One of the reasons, besides doing beta stuff, I need someone to P.M. the chapters to me whenever I get a hold of a computer. I don't want to spend an hour copying it down PC-to-paper(and to PC again). Copying and pasting would make me a happy boy. Anybody wanna help me. :3

I don't know anything about Ga-Rei, if that's a problem, but I'd be happy to beta anything, wouldn't be the fastest process thanks to uni work, but fast as possible.

Sasahara already published his fic after I beta'd it for him. It's a good read.

I'm a beta reader here for Danjo3 when he uses Rachel in his B&B stories. I beta read anyone who uses my OCs and anyone who asks if I have the time to do it.

Pretty much this. I'll happily run an eye over anywhere my characters are used if people want a sanity check, and if someone asks I'll try and make the time to look at what they have (which admittedly is getting increasingly difficult)... though I also tend to take that as a bit of an invitation to go to town with the crit.
