Hi, I'm looking for someone willing to beta a work in progress story. It's original fiction, kinda a romance that's not really all that romantic for the most part. Think romance but with two smelly boys in the back of a van, except I haven't even got to that point yet because I've hit a wall completely. I'd love it if someone could look over what I've got (14,500 words - about 1/4 of the story, I suspect.) and then potentially help talk through some ideas of how to get past the problem I've got.

I know exactly where I've gone wrong, and I have some ideas about how I could fix it, but I'd love some input.

Anyone interested can email me likethepaint [at] gmail [dot] com. Ideally I'd love someone to work on a long term basis (although obviously I don't need constant handholding) for the entire story, but I'm happy if you only want to do this one little bit. I can generally take constructive critism, (though I can't promise I won't pout a little bit XD), I'd rather someone was tough but honest when I suck than lied for the sake of my feelings.

Thanks! :)

Hey!, i'm Onella.
Would love to work with you?, story sounds interesting... for lack of a better word.- no pun intended.
I love reading, and writing and i love feeding off other people's work.
I read a lot of my friends stories and edit for them, so i do have some experience in beta-ing.
Im pretty good at english, i got a perfect study score for my first English piece.. if that helps you a bit more?
Do give a shout out if you;re interested?
