The 2011 Beta-reading Post: "How do you like that, huh? The ultimate back-stage pass."

In both mechanics and substance, with a little cheerleading encouragement, beta-reading helps make a story all it can be.

Need a beta-reader? We all do!  Want to beta-read? We hope so!  Coming from either side, please respond to any of the three comments we'll make here to start off the threads: "Beta Needed," "Willing to Beta" or "Beta Resources."  Where applicable, include what genres and ratings you're willing to tackle, or need tackled, and how to get in touch with you.  (Your mods can't help everyone find beta-readers one-at-a-time. This post is the solution!)

The three header threads are for organizational purposes.  Please use the comments on this post to chat and get into contact!  And please come back to this post from time to time to see who else may need or offer beta-reading as we get closer to the finish line.  (If you play on both LJ and DW, consider checking out the mirror post, too.)

Have fun!

Drop-Out Reminder:  The deadline to drop out ("default") in good grace is one week away.  If you must drop out, please let us know by then.  We'd be very sad to lose you!  But we'd also be grateful to give as much time as possible to the back-up writer.  (If you default after the deadline, we'll have to bar you from future fkficfest/[community profile] fkficfest events. It's only fair.)
