So I was busy this weekend with a house guest that I saw off this morning (I started to write got off then thought better of it with a bunch of slash writers) at the train station. I have also been busy friending all the authors that I read and a few of you even friended me back, so thank you. I have now started commenting on all the stories I read but you all should know it doesn't mean I didn't like your old stuff but I'm not going to go back and comment but have in general loved it all to varying degrees. Yes, that means if I friended you I have probably already read all your stuff. When I said I lurked for a long time I mean it. If I read one of your stories and liked it I would go back and read them all. I not been able to find a job in a while so I've had a lot of time on my hands. I don't know how people with jobs do it.
And speaking of free time I would like to offer my services a beta if you need one. I talked to anniespinkhouse
and she encourged me to go ahead and write but I'm still not sure I have the confidence yet, but beta I can do. I know the difference between your and you're as well as the theres and pretty good with then and than. I also have a good eye for continuity errors and when a sentence or section doesn't flow right. I also can read with my ears so I'm pretty good at spotting when an article is needed or something should be plural or if the phrasing just hits the ear wrong.
I had also talked to meus_venator
and found out that friending people can creep people out when you are new. I thought that was the only way to make to it easy to keep up with my favorites when they write new stuff but she/he? not sure of gender (when I was lurking I didn't generaly read personal stuff since I didn't think it fair I would know things and they would not have the same option). But, anyway I digress I friended for fic and MV let me know about the tracking option I had not noticed. So if creeps you out to have me friend you let me know and I will defriend and use track and figure out how that option works.
Sorry for the novel I tend to ramble and make every short story long by trying to add too much detail. Which is part of the reason I am afraid to write because it may be awful. Also if someone can help me figure out a question I have. As I have said I'm not very tech savy and am not sure why but when I hover over the search icon the box that appears instead to saying "Search" in English it says it in what I believe is Russian. Is it that way for everyone or is it just me? Thank you for your time.
