Greetings, 

Managed a second last round, but submitted at the last minute and missed some obvious opportunities for improvement. I’ve vowed to myself to complete an early draft for round two this weekend (and this time, I really mean it). Many intelligent, talented people hang out here. Wondering if anyone would be so kind as to beta read for me? If you’re writing in round two- and we are assigned different groups- I’m happy to return the favor. Best of luck all around!

Hey!  IDK how familiar you are with the forum mechanics, but just in case: There's typically a beta reader spreadsheet that pops up right as the round starts.  When you see it, just add your name to it so people can contact you.  Or, similarly, peruse the list and pick people to reach out to yourself!  It's pretty straight-forward!

I'm too intimidated to make the beta sheet but I'm open to beta-ing now so feel free to DM with your draft if you're ready.

Did someone make the beta list spreadsheet yet? I'm not in this comp, but I'd love to beta read a romance, romcom, or comedy - those are my specialties! Please help me meet my goal of procrastinating on doing the dishes.

Good luck! :)

@northernwriter I have a comedy I’ll send your way if you are serious.  It’s a rough first draft

Someone needs to post the beta spreadsheet already! Much easier that way.

@danni - I made a separate thread also with a spreadsheet and I don't think I can delete the separate thread!

I’d love to beta a comedy, it’ll be a few hours since I’m working today but I’m also doing comedy and would love to see where everyone is at 😅 finished up and am editing but feel like mine isn’t comedic enough. Ugh.
