Beta Readers! (updated version)
I know I posted one of these a while back, but with new folks coming in all the time, new stories being written, older ones being revised and so forth, it's always good to see who is currently available and who needs beta reading services.
I'm sure most of you know what a beta reader is. But for the few of you who may not, it's basically someone who will help you revise and improve your writing.
This can be anything from checking your stories for issues with spelling, grammar and formatting to helping you with style issues, plot ideas and story direction. Every author/beta reader arrangement works a little differently depending on preferences on both sides. Just as published authors use editors, most of the very best fanfiction writers rely on beta readers to help them make the most out of their stories.
If you're willing to volunteer as a beta reader, please leave a comment here, along with any personal preferences or limitations you have on the material you'd like to work with.
If you're looking for a beta reader, please post a few details on the story you're writing and what kind of help you're interested in finding.
Thanks a bunch!
