Also, what if a person reads some ones fic, edits it, helps them write it, makes it very nice but then the person decides not to post it? That would be a waste of time on the person who reviewed the story. (I saw someone mention that on PC and that I'd add it.)

I think it's a good idea but it would need to be set up in a way that prevented people from wasting their time but also having people that were dedicated. Plus people who wouldn't flame or put the person down if they didn't like the story.

Well, if you're requesting beta for something, you probably want it to be written (especially if its farther into the story). Yeah, I would probably emphasize the quality time beta readers spent to read a fic and that the person they beta'd it for would want to seriously take their suggestions with a level head.

So yeah, it sounds like I'll start it. I'll probably wait until after WAR, however. That will give me some time to improve on the forms for submission and figure out how the whole thing will work.

ZOMG, EVOLUTION! I CAN'T WAIT! (Is it premiering on Serebeth tonight as well?) A journey fic from Kayden!

Man, The Review Roundup w/ Redlark is dead. Yeah, it's been that way for a while.

Yeah, a beta company thing will work. There are now quite a few members who needed some help in learning how to write a decent fanfiction.

And Kayden, Evolution is coming today? Oh my gosh,I can't wait! I promise I will review that fic! XD

Yeah, well evolution was supposed to come today, yesterday...at least that's hat it seemed to me. But I can't wait until it does come. I doubt I'll be able to review it (as reviewing Kayden's work would need serious understanding of English, and the ability to see the smallest mistake, something which I cannot do for nuts), but I will be looking forward to reading it...

DS

EDIT: On the topic of beta, I say that we have a rule that anything that wants to be beta'd should be at least (such and such chapters) into the story, and whoever wants their story to be beta'd should show us (such and such chapters). Just an idea, so no complusion.

DS...again.

I have now (finally) posted Evolution. So I´d be glad if people would take a look and give me some good, long reviews. Especially considering it´s the first time I´ve written in second-person and I want to know how horrible it is. :P

Link in siggy.

Yeah, I guess that works. But it shouldn't have to be posted, because that negates the whole purposed of betaing. Yeah, that might work.


I better take a look at Evolution now!

Edit: That's it, it's going up tonight whether you like it or not! Right now, in fact...

So, go over to the Beta Reader thread and read the rules for writers. (The link shall be in my siggy soon). If you have fill out the form correctly, I'll gladly do it for you.

(I sort of feel bad for frying your fic and making you want to stop it. Sorry)

Deathspector is now a beta reader too, by the way, if he posts his profile in the 'company.

I don't see the big deal with age. There is such a thing as natural talent and then there's the hardworkers. *shrugs* Anything after that is the persons own worlds getting in the way.

As far as feeling down thing goes... again, I just do what I wish. I write for the pure hobby of it, I love to get better (that's the blood of a gamer for you) but at the same time, I'm not looking for recognition or aspire to be some great writer. I keep going until I either lose interest or finish reguardless of the situation.
My writing is 10% age 110% hard work :P

Meh. I applied, as I told you I would. :P

I just added a TON of random stuff to my Story Archive, lol. XD

Oh yeah, I signed up for the Beta thing, so if anybody wants me to proofread their work, you can PM it to me. ;)

Hehe, I saw that the beta company is working. I wish I could apply for it, but I can't for a couple of reasons:

-I am going to be in college soon and I am not sure if I will have time to look at someone's work.

-My grammar is fairly weak. I tried my best to correct my grammar on my works, but I am still learning about it.

I am going to have a fanfiction coming up pretty soon, so maybe I will probably have someone beta my fic to check some grammar mistakes.
