    The Editing and Proofreading Thread


    This thread is for editing and proofreading only. It can be stories, poems, articles, Mibba or non-Mibba work.

    *If you are looking for a mentor or someone to help brainstorm, please use The Storyboard Mentoring thread.

    How it works:
    • Post as much information about your work as possible. Include things like topic, genre, rating, and type. Include anything specific you’d like the person editing to look out for, and how you’d like them to make changes: if you’d like them to simply point out errors, or change them within the text. Be sure to add how you wish to be contacted (by PM or profile comment).

      Once you’ve found someone to proofread your piece, please return to the thread and edit your original post to let us know you no longer need help.
    *To keep the thread clean and easy to look through, please DO NOT post here to claim a piece. Contact the person directly.

    Feel free to ask for help as often as you need to and if possible, volunteer your help as well.

    Izzy Was Here.

    I'm doing really well with the story so far, but I'm doubting how long that could last. If I'm honest with myself, I probably need help with all of my stories.

    Please help.

    Thank you!

    Hello! I'm writing a book and I'm currently looking for someone to edit/proofread it for me. I basically need someone to point of grammatical errors, punctuation, spelling, and to make sure I keep my information correct. I've read over my story a thousand times and I just need someone to help my eyes see what they can't.

    I guess I should give a little information about it. It is a original fiction called Happy Accidents. I'm one of those paranoid people. I don't want the concept of my story to disappear. Will someone help me?

    I don't have any story up that needs to be proofread/edited, but I was wondering if anyone would be there for me if I need them. I'm very bad with my wording and I might need help with the stories I would like to update.

    Thank you and sorry for the bother. Cute

    Well, I am entering a chapter from my story Ptolemy for a writing contest in November. I need a lot of people to proof read it because college professors are ruthless with the red pen. I found this out last year...so the more eyes to catch things the better!

    Anyways it is the chapter title Run Back Home in the story called Ptolemy. Thank you very much!

    Hey guys, I am looking for someone to go through and read my work. I make mistakes such as making typos. For example I try to write tire and come out with tie. I also do things like use the wrong form of their, there and such. I am looking for someone who will go along and do the corrections like this: “Maddie made the mistake fo(of) not going to the bell(ball) with Dianne.” I tend to leave out a coma where some think it would fit or put too many if that happens I don’t mind them being taken out or added as long as I am informed of it.

    Just to let you know before you accept I write mostly band slash and that is what I need you to edit for me. If you are interested please send me a pm.

    Ahoy!
    I know you said not to reply here if we want to claim a story, so I'm going to assume we would only have something to say here is if we needed help with our story.
    I don't; I'm actually offering help to those who want it.
    I'm not sure how this works since you said that those who found someone should edit their post, but nobody did. Either I'm wrong or nobody PM'd them yet.

    Sorry if my post was pointless.

    I'm looking for a beta for my story False Pretenses. It's a original fiction romance that I've just started, and I would just like someone to check over typos, grammatical and spelling errors though it'll be nice to have someone to talk to about ideas and such and to correct awkward sounding sentences to make it flow better. :)

    PM me please, if you're interested.

    I was wondering if someone would be interested being a beta for my new story Operation: Mindcrime.

    I would rather someone who is pretty active, because I plan on updating often, and I will credit you as my Beta in the story!

    I have a gay fiction story, it's a co-write but you'd only have to look over mine. It's called No Chance for Redemption, updates come about twice a month for me and the chapters are about 1500 words long. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me out! Cute

    Hello! I've started a fiction and I've been told that I have a problem with switching tenses. 1st, 3rd... The story is a romantic, drama, horror, about a girl in Gotham city who runs into Batman.
    I would like someone to read through it catch any grammatical errors or if something doesn't flow right. I would like it to be fairly easy to read.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi, I need a beta for a story I'm writing called The Nest, which is a sort of a sci-fi/ dystopian/ apocalyptic story. You can check out the first chapter here ,if you want to check it out beforehand. I just need to know how my wording is, how to make it more interesting, other constructive criticism.

    Hi, I need a beta for my story All I Want For Christmas Is You. It is a short story (about 1,152 words) slash/romantic fanfiction featuring Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. I seem to be having a little bit of problems with punctuation, capitalization, and grammar. Just minor mistakes that I would like to have looked over. Please and thank you.
