SLFW seeks ECB - Semi-Lazy Female Writer seeks Epic Committed BETA
I don't mind if you're a girl or a boy, as long as you have the experience and enthusiasm to keep me going.
I'm not one for long walks on the beach, dinner by candlelight or feeding each other grapes on a faux-bear skin rug in front of the fireplace. I'm much to busy procrastinating and thinking up even more situations for the Fuffy story I've had running around in my head for over 3 years... I'm more into long talks on IM going over Fuffy details, hunting and abolishing run on sentences together and reading suggestions and corrections to my story made by my (future) ECB.
While I'm quick to jump into things, I'm quite bad at the follow through. I'm looking for a BETA that is committed, even when I'm being lazy. One who won't have a problem to tell me to stop reading the comments section of the Huffington Post's politics stories because 1. they get my blood pressure up to an unhealthy boil and 2. I need to be bringing the Fuffy goodness.
I'm looking for the ONE, you know, the ONE BETA that will stick with me through writers block bouts and new releases of DLC (Downloadable Content for my possible non gamer geek BETAs) for Dragon Age 2 and LA Noire.
I'm open to new things and suggestions, so I need more than an editor but someone who's a good listener and has no problem offering suggestions as well. In return I offer chats that will be entertaining (at least for one of us), exclusive, first look, unedited, chapters of my story and the occasional obsessing over how to word something right.
I'm not looking for a one or two chapter kind of BETA, I need a BETA who brings their own U-Haul and parks it in my inbox. This isn't going to be some short story with a nice little plot and a tidy ending, this one is years in the making and in my humble opinion, pretty epic, so I need someone who is epic as well to go on this journey through story creation with me.
Could you be my ECB? If you think we could be a compatible match for story making greatness, please feel free to respond to this or message me personally.
I'll be waiting with baited breath, well not really, more like slight panting with mild bitching, it's way hot here today.
Now I've told you, ok, now you know.

Hey, lady. I'm complete crap with grammar. Besides, if you don't want to be naked on top of something dead and eat grapes I just don't even know what we would talk about. But, you've somehow sold me on your fic without telling me much of anything about it. Seriously? Three years you've been thinking about this story? That's a long time, chica. Also, you said it would be awesome. You said it with your keyboard.
You should write that fic so that I can read it.
I can not be your beta soulmate, but if it helps- I BELIEVE IN YOU!
