So here's the deal. I'm getting married this Saturday and very well may not get the opportunity to write my second story. I'm going to try my damndest! BUT. If I *do* get it done, it won't be until later on Sunday.

I'm crowd-sourcing here to see if there will be anyone willing to read and turnaround critique in a VERY short timeframe Sunday night, running up to deadline time? I'm currently in Group 82 if that matters. I would be so, so grateful!!

I really want to fit this in... hoping I can carve out some "me" time on Sunday while recovering from my inevitable hangover. I'm worried it won't happen. But. Needs must, right? :)

TIA!

Of course! Happy to help. I mean, NYCM first, but wedding is important too, right?

Yay! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it, and let's just cross our fingers that I can hammer out something - anything! - this Sunday. I highly doubt I'll have any time Saturday morning to work on anything but you never know. I'll be taking my computer so maybe while I'm having my pre-wedding mimosas I can at least get a rough outline? LOL

I'm always writing late on Sunday, pushing the deadline, so hit me up. I do technically have to go to bed by the deadline, because it's ten pm my time and I get up at five am Monday for work, but I'm in here anyway. LOL

We're here to help. I'll try to be alert to your request--DM me if you need to flag me down.

Also, once you get the license and sign it in the presence of witnesses, you're married, so you can skip all the ceremonies. They're just for guests. ;)

Haha!  You people are the best! I am not a fan of romance, or comedy, or... romantic comedy... but I'm almost hoping that's my assigned genre so I can incorporate my wedding shenanigans into the story. Or hell, even if it's horror.....  ;)

I wish I could offer to help, because this is the funniest request for a beta reader I've seen. Unfortunately, I'm off line in the evenings, so I'll be useless to you. But I do wish you the best of luck, with the story and the ceremony!

This is just so hilarious.....I had to step up to the plate. I’m in the UK and am notoriously bad for going absolutely to the wire, but if I can help, I will certainly try.
It just shows what a mad lot we are, that we are so focussed on writing something that you’d have your laptop there at your wedding haha!

I can just imagine you during the wedding vows, fluffing them as you quote a line from the story you’re mulling over in your head instead of your supposed line!

If you don’t get Rom-Com, someone who does should totally use this for a story idea!

And all the very best for your wedding day and nuptials....Your poor partner lol! 

Enjoy your day.....it will fly by....... you can bash out a story on Sunday, no sweat!

Offering beta services also, but I'm not as much of a hardcore Brit as Paula! I'm usually submitted and asleep 5 hours before the deadline, just cause I can't stay up till the final 5am hour. So if you find you've got a couple of hours till submission, gimme a shout. Till then, best wishes for the wedding! xxx
