Looking for a Beta Reader

Looking for a Beta Reader

Hey F-list,

I've just started writing a new story that may turn into an SPN_J2 Big Bang for NEXT year.  I've never used the services of a beta reader before, but I think I'm really going to need the help with this story if it's going to be any good at all.  You see, I've never written J2 before and so I'm a little bit nervous about that.  Also, I'd like to find someone who I could bounce ideas off of and who would be willing to help me smooth out the plot.

I think there is a site where you can go to locate a beta reader or get matched up with someone, but I'm not sure where to look.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  • I've never looked for a beta myself, but there is a community called spn_betas (http://spn-betas.livejournal.com/) that might be able to help you.
    Otherwise, if you need someone, I have beta'd before but my schedule is pretty packed right now so am limited to mainly weekends, and in the evening. :( Happy to help though if that works for you :)
    • I don't think I'll have anything major ready for a while, so all I really need at this point is someone to throw ideas at to see if they sound interesting at all. If you're up for that, I'll PM you with a little more about what I'm thinking so far. If you don't have the time, that's perfectly okay.
      • I love your stories, so am happy to help with ideas, but I just might not be super fast to get back to you (gad! I hate my job!!). If that doesn't work for you, no worries at all!
  • (no subject) -
    • Yes, that's it. Thanks! I understand the squick. What I'm thinking about will probably be more hurt/comfort J2 than anything else, but I get where you're coming from. Thanks for the help.
  • I'd be happy to beta for you hon! Lemme know, okay? ::Hugs::
    • Awesome!!! Thanks, I'll PM you some of my ideas and if you can tell me what you think that would be fantastic!
  • Hey I could be your beta, hon ;o)
    Nah, of course not, but I'm dying to hear (and read) all about that first J2, h/c story of yours.
    You go girl! *hugs*
    • I would love to get your input. I just sent your the story outline. It's pretty vague up to this point. That's why I need some help. *hugs*
