(Never seen that movie. Should I have?)
Loyal reader Foxfier kindly suggested I “Find the folks whose feedback was most useful, ask them to beta-read the other stuff you have…” and, well, I have not yet found the folks whose feedback was most useful, so here goes nuthin’:
Got a couple finished stories straight off the ol’ cerebrum, plus a couple more almost done I’ll be highly motivated to finish if people step forward to offer to read them. Then there’s the Novel That Shall Not Be Named. It would cruel to inflict that on anyone in its current state, so that I’ll hold off on it for now. (The education book(s) are notes and outlines and a big and growing pile of more books to read first at this point, so they are definitely not in the mix right now.) Therefore, the longest thing you’re likely to see out of me at this point is maybe 20,000 words – most will be MUCH shorter, like 3,000 – 5,000. The two ready to go now are in that latter range.
Wanna be a beta reader? Both general and specific feedback would be appreciated, so, if you’d just want to read and give it a thumbs up or down, or if you’re the type that not only has a blue pencil, but a favorite blue pencil, or anything in between, you are welcome.
Just drop me a line at yardsaleofthemind “at” gmail “dot” com, and I’ll send you stuff in the next couple days. If you don’t like it or can’t get around to it, I promise no hard feelings.
