>hey there! i'm willing to help; but you need to be more specific
what ever is fine EXCEPT i do not read consenting incest stories, or
you're also a bit vague on what you want done as far as a beta is
concerned. i can beta one of two ways for you. either i can just
look for (A) grammar, spelling and syntax issues only, or (B) i can
do all that, and look at continuity and phraseology of your piece; in
other words, see where makes sense, where it doesn't, when something
could be said better, more concise, rearranged...whatever will help
with the story flow. i usually only comment on characterization IF
the characters behave inconsistently in your story, or if your
portrayal of a known character seems way "off." the second method is
obviously a bit more heavy-handed than the first. so it's up to you
how much or how little you want me to do. either way, the
suggestions of changes i make are just that---suggestions. it is
your story, and therefore ENTIRELY up to you whether or not you take
any or all of them. it will not break my heart if you don't use one
of those suggestions.
if this is good for you, then go ahead and send the chapters
(separately!)that you've got done so far, and i'll get to work on it
