BSV Forum - Writing - Beta

Beta request

Feb 24 2009 10:36 am   #1Sotia
Hello!

I'm in need of a beta.

I'm from Greece, so my major issues are with grammar and punctuation (since I'm not a native speaker, and not because all Greeks have issues with grammar and punctuation ), but plot advice is always welcome. I mostly write AH fic, although I'm currently working on a post-cannon BtVS one, too. You can find everything I've written so far (AU and vampy) on my LiveJournal page, or I can send you unbetaed samples if you'd like. I already have a beta, who is also an author, but thought a second pair of eyes (or third, rather, since I'm counted in there too) would definitely help.

I'm not looking for help with just one story, I'd like a beta with whom I could cultivate an on-going relationship (and oh-my-God, this sounded like a personal ad :-/), so that we can in time become familiar with each other's style.

Thank you,
Sotia

I figured I'd piggyback on this thread, as well as bump it.

I too need a beta.  It's for a long short story--a Spangel, that's post NFA, with s6 comic mentions (it is not necessary to be familiar with the comic to understand the story.  However, being familiar with the Spike/Angel dynamic of s5 is necessary). 

Anyway, I've kind of stalled out a bit on it, and I'm not sure on what I have written so far.  Beta notes have given me a helping hand in the past, and I figured it wouldn't hurt at any rate.

I know a lot of people aren't comfortable with slash, but it's really a...I intend for it to be PG-15.  Maybe borderline R.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the bump, and I can't wait to read your Spangel!
