Anyone looking for beta work?  I'm in need of a steady, reliable beta. I'm looking for spelling and errors and perhaps someone to bounce ideas off from time to time. I use Gdocs and I write not only Vin but Supernatural, K-Ville and a few others but those are the biggies at the moment.  

My email addy is FuryanGoddess@gmail.com

Thanks
Tracy

I'm gonna need a beta in the next few days for chapter 12 of "Home."
I've posted through, uh... chapter 8 or 9 on the boards. Or you can read through chapter 11 here.
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4866764/1/Home
Mainly, I just have problems with run-on sentances and overuse of commas.
Maybe someone to slap me when I go on too long...
Story is mostly plotted, just need someone who might be able to help me from point A to point B.
I have perhaps one more big smut scene in the lot of it, the rest is plot.
PM me if you've got the time and inclination.
Lay out your terms.

Hi! I"m Candice. I would really love a Beta Reader to proofread my stories before I post them. It would really help a lot. So if anyone wants to be my Beta, you can contact me via PM and we'll go for there. Thanks.  :)

A Note to the Betas:

There have been a few posts about what it is to be a beta, about what's expected and what they are expected to do for you as a writer and to improve your storytelling skills. On top of all the great things that a beta reader will do for us, I'd like to add one more thing.

A beta reader should be well-versed on VX's Fanfic Rules. Sometimes when we're writing, it's very easy to get so carried away with with what we're doing that we may forget simple things like what makes up the mandatory header, where the line is between an 'R' rating and an 'NC17' rating, or that we may have crossed the line on age of consent for example. This is where having a beta poke you with a note or two before something is posted can really come in handy. So betas, take a moment to reacquaint yourself with VX's fanfic rules, here.

Thanks,
Elaine:)

I am looking for an additional beta reader for my Star Trek 2009 fic. Furyan Goddess is beta reading for me (thanks FG!), and I'd like to get another set of eyes too. I want to be sure my plot and character development make sense to someone who hasn't already spent hours helping me plan it (like FG has). I won't ask you to look at it until the spelling/grammar/punctuation is correct, so you don't need to worry about wasting your time with that tedious stuff (assuming you don't think the story itself is tedious...)  :)

I'm still available to Beta if anyone needs one. I'm not the greatest but i do find spelling errors and weird mistakes in other people's work quite easily. My own, not so much.
About the only think I'm not real big on is anything to do with rape. So please none of that. Anything else if fair game and I'd be happy to help out.
If english is not your first language please let me know up front so i can add that as a consideration in your work.
Please feel free to use me, and i stop by here about every other day for a glance at the site. Hardly ever in chat any more.

lalala ... of course, not working on my ongoing fics... but if anyone had any knowledge of Hindu religion, or more specifically... Kali,  I'd love a beta on a oneshot  Riddick fic I'm considering posting.

Hello :) I need a Beta for a Twilight fic...it is post Breaking Dawn. I don't want to post it till I've finished it so it will be a while before its on here. I'd like someone who is familiar with the genre...sparkly vampires and all :)

Oh...its mainly grammar and spelling errors I've over looked.

I will! Unless you ask me not to! :D

Just a general note, when you ask someone to beta for you, you should be clear about what you want from them. Many beta readers utilize standard English, rather than any regional dialect. If you want your native tongue to remain true, just tell your beta reader that and they will most likely oblige. :)

I need help with a few paragraphs containing Spanish words, and English spoken with a strong Spanish accent. I don't think it will require much time. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. :)

Thanks for the offer, Trick, but Silke already took care of my questions. I did send you a note about Supernatural betaing...I'd be happy to help with that, if you still need someone. :D
