A kind soul will add a post, you chuck your name/email/group up, maybe email a couple of folks who have done the same with your pdf + prompts and see if they've got the time to read/ feedback on it (they usually do). 

Everyone just plays it by ear and reads what they can when they can. Since it's a longer round, I guess people will have a 'ready to read' status next to their name or something to that effect. 

For the feedback itself you can be as detailed as you want. Some people put thorough comments on the pdfs themselves and correct all typos/ formatting errors etc, some people write more general comments about what worked and what didn't. All up to you. Your feedback comments on the final posts are helpful anyway, so stick to that format of bullet pointing while you read if that's how you work Smile

You can also just put your hand up in the thread like this. The spreadsheet works, but so do Beta threads. My hand is up.

After the last go-round, I'm questioning my effectiveness as a beta reader. If I decide to read, I'll be on the spreadsheet when it's posted. Any idea who's going to post it this time?

Best of luck to all participating.

Apologies to all... I've had a personal matter rear its ugly head, preventing me from both being a beta reader and completing my entry for Round 1. Best of luck to all of you. I look forward to reading what all of you have done when posted in the Forum. Real life sucks!
