Goddess Strega--
I don't have much time myself, but for some reason had to answer you.
Maybe just batting ideas around, maybe tag-teaming...not sure what might work, but I'm feeling the need to stretch a bit.
I was going to reply to princess-silence for KAG, but H jumped in.

I'm willing & flexible, but busy (of course, like everybody)(...sounds like a dating survey!!)

let me know what's up

 :)

BETA AVAILABLE

Hey All,

Anyone needing a Beta, I am available. Be patient though sometimes I may not get back to you the same day, though I will try.

My grammar is kinda weak but I'm good with spelling. I excel with plot lines and flow. I can definately let you know if something works or not. AND I won't be offended if you don't take my advice. Now, even though my grammar is pretty weak compared to other Betas I'm sure, I can still do pretty good. Just finished a course in University where we reviewed/marked (without the grading part) 20 page papers of our classmates.

So I have experience! And, I don't care about the content. Slash, violence, blood guts and gore, torture, sex, bondage, light fluffy stuff, I can handle it all.

just pm me if you're interested

I have a fic that I am working on that I would like to have beta-ed before I put it up on the board. I haven't written in a minute and I'm rusty so if someone could help me out it would be great.

Beta volunteer reporting for duty ...  I'd be happy to help anyone in need.

I don't know what credentials are looked for (if any), but I can tell you that I have a degree in English literature & also have a background in journalism.  I've got a lot of writing under my belt, just not much of it is "creative."

I haven't posted on this site much (obviously), so no one here knows me from Adam.  Guess what I'm trying to say is that I can't offer any personal references.  I do lurk around a lot, and read quite a few fics.  I swear I'm going to start being better about leaving feedback! :embarrass

I've never beta'd before, but anyone who wants to take a chance on me can shoot me a PM.  Thanks!

Hey everyone! I'm in need of a beta for a couple of fics that I'm working on. The fandoms range from KAG and PB to original stories. Any help would be great. I've been writing so much more now that I dont have to write 20 page term papers for class (funny how that happens, huh? :) ) Anyway, I'm rambling now lol.
If anyone is interested, PM or email me. Thanks!

*besos*

I know I've asked before, but.... my writing is terrible. really!
I would probably need a lot work.
Still, if anyone need a career in Beta reading, I'd welcome any and all  help!
Pm me please.
Thanks  :hugs

Google Docs and Beta...
« Reply #99 on: Mon, Jun 16, 2008, 09:04 AM »
hi!

With so many people wanting beta readers (and others being interested in being betas) I thought some people might want to make use of a feature many of us on VX have been using for a little while now.

Would you like to have a way to have your document somewhere where several people can beta your document live? You can do this now through Google Docs. Your document is stored online, and you choose who has access to it (no one can see it unless you let them). That way, you and whoever betas for you can work on their own time, or you can have several people that will be able to help you at the same time.

This is something that the Collaborative and Virtual Pleasures Groups have already put into practice and it's come in very handy for us. Someone that may not have the time to become solely your beta may have the time to beta a few chapters and then someone else will pick up, and someone after that.

If you're already using Gmail, just hit the link in the top left of your screen, "documents", and take it from there. For those without Gmail, go here: http://docs.google.com/ and take the steps from there.

Give it a try!
hat tip to Silver!

I take it this works globally?  As in, US user can grant permission to an Aussie user, Canada to England, etc?

Sounds like a great idea!  Thanks for sharing, E! :rule

yep, it works everywhere, H
we get collaborators from all over the world. It really does make a difference. No gagillion emails back and forth, nothing getting lost, and it doesn't matter what time you're online. It's like getting to work on a Microsoft Word document with several people at the same time. Most of us, when we have a bunch of different people, state at the top what color we'll be using, and then that person does all their betaing or additions in that color so that it's easy to see who's done what. It's made beta reading so much easier.

Ok so I need someone with the ability to write or co-write a chapter for my fic. I need someone who could write a section of a chapter that will have a high 'medical' content. Let me know if anyone can do this.


Thanks

I'd be more than happy to help anyone beta.  I haven't done it before but I'm very strong in grammar and spelling.  The only thing I'd really need to be schooled in would be the processes each writer prefers.  But if you find yourself in need, I'm available :D

Ok, I have a couple of parts of a story done but I'm waffling back and forth about it.  I'm half tempted to just post it and see but I'd really like an opinion and a critical eye before I do so.  Would someone be willing to give it a read for me?

Nah, it's not real long yet.  I only have the first couple parts done, it isn't finished yet but I wanted some feedback before I got too far into it.  I decided I have to re-work something real quick-like and then I'll put it up in google docs.  Probably tomorrow morning sometime.  And don't worry about being real quick, it'll give me time to keep working at it.  I really appreciate it :D

I offer my services to anyone who is in need of a beta.  I am usually fast and accurate and always open to new material.  I can check spelling, grammar, puntuation, and/or content, whatever you decide or ask for.  If anyone is interested, then just PM me and we can go from there.

Cheers
