I'm looking for a beta for some Doctor Who fiction. I'm starting on
what's shaping up to be a long-term project (read: 20,-30,000
words, perhaps more), and it's for this that I'm chiefly concerned.
This particular project (which will feature Doc 5, Tegan, and
Turlough) is just starting, but I thought I should start a search
early. I also do crank out smaller pieces--especially
characterization studies--for which I wouldn't mind getting some
criticism prior to posting on the FFN.
The sort of beta I'm hoping to encounter would be
knowledgeable with Doctors 3-5 and merciless
stylistically/technically--my feelings are *not* easily bruised. For
this particular large project I'll especially need a guinnea pig who
can tell me if the more scientific aspects of the science-fiction
plot are comprehensible, readable, snoozable, whatever.
In return, I'm willing to read... well, just about anything having to
do with Doctor Who, Babylon 5, or Star Trek: TOS: and I have to
admit, I'm a much better critic than I am a creator!
So, anybody willing to look at my stuff as I start churning it out?
