How might beta-ing work this round? 

Dare I say, I'm ready for readers?

I think the only beta-ing could come from people not in the finals.  I think it'd be hard to give honest feedback and not not feel discouraged by seeing how well others are doing with the prompts.  At least for me.

I totally get that! I better just hope some non-finalists click here on my little thread :)

I'll be ready for a beta in a few hours. Not sure if there are any non-finalists on the forums who are willing to help me out, but if so, please let me know!

Not sure how this works for all of us now being in the same group. I'm assuming we can't beta each others stories? I'd be willing to, in the name of good sportsmanship, but I suspect that wouldn't be a popular option! Lol.

In the "better than nothing" category, I would take a look if you like! LOL Walking away for a little bit right now, though and might not be available later in the afternoon.

My email is michele.strachota@valpo.edu (wow it's not like that's my full name or anything). Email me if you're willing and I'll send my story over! :)
