Looking for a beta reader

Recommended Posts

So I am finally getting back to work on a fic I started writing some months ago before RL got really intense. I suppose I won't be publishing till at least March since I want to have it done (10 chapters) before I start publishing but I did start going through the chapters I've already written and I think this would be a great time for a beta to read them. Since I'm not a native english speaker having a beta who is could be great. 

The story is a 2029 story that includes the whole gang+OCs with differing focus and differing point of views (all written from character POV). Canon couples and Raj+OC. I suppose I will tag it under "family" in genre, and maybe "friendship" or "romance", it is kind of a mix with ligther and heavier chapters but not big drama and no adult content.

If you don't mind an English ( the spellings might be different from the American ones ) reader, I'd be happy to have a go.

That would be great :) Thank you ! My deafult is American english (as it is what we are taught here and most of what I read and hear on TV) so between you and me maybe we could get this right :icon_cheesygrin: There are also always google and dictionary sites to check whatever uncertainty (or American members here)

I'll PM you later :)

I just wrote a new Lenny one-shot, 2195 words. I want to publish on Monday, a special Lenny date (first meeting) but since I will not have my computer I need it finished by early Friday, my time, which would be about 5 AM Friday US Central time. I just need someone to check for language mistakes, since I am not a native English speaker. I don't want to turn to specific people so as not to impose with this short deadline, so I'm using this post. Whoever is available for that would be great, if not I'll just publish it without beta.

I'll read through it and see if there's any edits I can identify. I'm about as native an English speaker as you can find.
