Beta/Writer/Lurker?: N00B writer (but I consider myself primarly a reader)
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
What do you hope to get out of this Community?: The beta I was working with (with much satisfaction) its very busy IRL lately so she can't help me, so I'm searching for a second beta to work with. If in future my first beta will regain a bit of free time to beta for me again, I'd like to work with both betas at the same time.
Since I'm not a native english speaker, I need a beta whom at least will correct all the english grammar mistakes and the flowing of the sentences. General imputs on the story like continuity checks, structure changes, style or whatever you think it's needed will be very welcome as bonus. Brit-picking would be the cherry on top but it's not mandatory.
I don't have problems with (polite) strictness, but please be aware that sometimes I could not follow some of the advices, sometimes because I disagree, most times because I'm still not able to do better. Anyway I have thick skin and a strong sense of reality (I don't fancy myself a good writer) so it'll be very hard to annoy me.
I'm not a fast writer and I'm pretty chill, so I will not pester you to finish to correct my stories in a few days.
How long have you been writing?: Less than a year.
What genre of stories do you like to write: I write kinky dark sh*t (the "standard" dark kind, not the very dark kind), so I need a beta whom is ok with this kind of content. We can speak about what are our squicks via mp, so no one has bad surprises later (I don't write underage).
