Desperately Seeking Beta

I know, I know. I'm totally beating an almost dead horse here, but... there's hope for
the old boy yet. I swore that I would eventually finish the story of William Matthew
Jamison Dowell, and I intend to keep that promise.

I need someone to reread what's been posted, to help me find characters who've been
neglected; who should be part of the closing narrative. I have at least one chapter written
that needs to be checked for tone.

Most importantly, I would love for someone to bounce ideas off of; to help me push forward.
There are probably less than a handful of chapters left to go. I can see the light at the
end of the tunnel... it's just that I feel like my legs have been cut off.

So this is a cry for help. Hopefully there is a wonderful soul out there who is as anxious
for the completion of Beloved as I am, and who's willing to work with a neurotic, procrastinating,
insecure author writer.

**whew** Didn't chicken out on posting this, as I have done for many months now. I've been here,
reading y'all's posts, just being abnormally silent.

Hello, love. It's great to see you.

If you can only give me till October I would be happy to help out. I'm afraid I'm just too busy till then. Also, since it's been so long, I would need to re-read the story so far first. Is it all available on your LJ?

**pouts** I was beginning to think that nobody would answer my cry for help /pityparty.

OMG, Deb! I would be honored to work with you. Waiting for October isn't an issue. I've put this story off for so long... a little longer means nothing.

It's all in my memories on LJ, so easily accessible. It's also got it's own LJ - simply_beloved - but the formatting seems fucked up, so my personal LJ is your best bet.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for stepping up for me. You have no idea how happy you've made me.

:Hugs:

My pleasure. Just remind me at the beginning of October.

Also, when the story is finished you will post it on A03 and Elysian Fields, won't you? There's really nothing in the way of f/b to be had on LJ these days. :(

It's already posted in full on A03... would love to post it on Elysian Fields.

I'm re-reading the fic, meself, cause I sooo need to, and I can't believe that once upon a time, I managed to get words out of my head. Hope to do so, again.
