Name: Isabel
Beta Experience: None, but I'm currently in the process of writing my own book right now. I've been told I'm an excellent writer and my stuff is pretty addictive. Did I mention I'm a grammar stickler?
Strengths: Editing, long sections of character thoughts
Weaknesses: Huge blocks of conversation, kind of weak with lemon stuff (but getting better)
What ratings will you do?: Anything. Looking for M though.
What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon, het, slash): Canon mostly. B/E
What fandoms? Twilight only for now.

I know it sounds like I don't have much experience, but I like to think I do. I used to write fanfic a long time ago (geeze, now I sound old) and I would like to get back into it, but I doubt I have time to do my own full-blown FF writing while I'm in the middle of writing my book.

I am super interested in doing some Beta work and I would loooooooove to help someone out. I'm a quick reader and I'm good at giving constructive criticism when needed.

Please PM me if you're interested. I'd love to help out! :)

Name:Ryanne (ryan)
Beta Experience: Only a few things online, mostly I edit papers and help with writing style at my college.
Strengths: The fact that I don't try to make the paper my own, I just give advice and correct grammar.
Weaknesses: I'm not sure, if anything then spelling.
What ratings will you do?: Any and all
What couples will you do?: Doesn't matter, you could have Bella going out with Mike, I won't judge :)
What Fandoms will you do?: Any as long as I've read them and If you can't find someone who's read them then I could read them, I'm a book junkie and never have enough to read.
Will you do crossovers?: Yes it doesn't matter
Avaliblity: Anytime through out the day and at night, I hardly sleep. Once school starts up again then early morning or afternoon after 6

I am writing a Fan fic, Twilight related-obviously.

It's Edward and Bella-Before the wedding, but after eclipse.
It's in the early stages but A beta would be awesome as this is my first twilight fanfiction.

Interested? It's not racy maybe PG-13?, I'm kind of going for lots of plot twists and stuff-punctuation and spelling are what kill me.

(FOR RIGHT NOW I AM COVERED-THANKS ALL!!)

I need someone to beta my story.

It's about when Jasper first met Alice and i really need someone who could give back detailed criticism, and would be willing to possibly read a few drafts of the same piece. The story is very short right now so it wont take long to read. PM if you interested

Thanks 8)

Hey guys I found someone..thanks for all the help :)

Name: Maegan

I've never actually done this before but I'm extremely good at picking out errors in grammar and stuff ( I do it all the time and leave little review to the authors begging them to fix them because it bothers me )...I read fanfiction a lot and I would like to beta read to better myself in reading and such... plus I have like no life so I'm free all the time... so if you would like to give a new girl a try...PICK ME!!! I would mostly be able to do Twilight related stories easier but I will do any type just to check for grammatical errors and it like making sense...

Name: Stephanie (not THAT Stephanie so don't wet yourself)
Beta Experience: My friends books, scripts, essays, and some fan fiction.
Strengths: Good eye for language flow and strong understanding of grammar.
Weaknesses: Sometimes I miss minor errors and typos, but I usually go over the work more than once to make sure I don't.
What ratings will you do?: Any rating.
What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon, het, slash):
I will read any pairing, but I'm very skeptical on slash (with fan works, of course) so if you don't convince me, expect to hear about it.
If you can't dazzle them with your wit, baffle them with your BS.

Name: Talia (some call me tally for short)
Beta Experience: I've never officially done this, but i read a lot of fanfiction as well as books. I'm writing my own story, and think it would be fun if we exchanged stories and beta-ed for each other.
Strengths: I'm very opinionated. I will tell you exactly what i think. I'm also good at picking out grammatical errors and spelling, as well as chronological mistakes.
Weaknesses: Lack of experience probably.
What ratings will you do?: Any. I don't particularly like the younger ratings, only because they tend to be more bubbly than the older ratings.
What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon, het, slash): Any really. Bella/Edward is the one i will be probably be best in , or Alice/Jasper. i will do Bella/Jacob- I know some people won't. Harry Potter pairings too.
What Fandoms will you do?: Twilight, Harry Potter
Will you do crossovers?: Yes.
Avaliblity: Only one or two stories, because im writing my own now.

Hi, I'm looking for someone to beta a story for me. It's called Dusk Descending and it's my version of New Moon from Edward's perspective. I've already got the first chapter up (in five parts) and I really just need someone to check spelling/grammar and make sure that everything is in character. The link is in my signature so check it out and PM me if you're interested. Thank you :)

~mveritym

PS - I honestly couldn't care less if you have experience or not but if you have any of your writing, please send it so I know what kind of writer you are. Thanks again :)

***I found someone thank you all :)***
