After, once again, posting a story to Utopiastories (where there is no edit capability), I'm appalled at the number of typos that have slipped by. I've tried letting stories sit and various other techniques and my rate of error catching has improved. Nevertheless, I still suck at proofreading my own stuff.
I have pestered people into proofreading in the past, but I don't like to do that. A few people have offered here and there, but my inbox is largely a train wreck so I've lost track. As a result, I'm trying a new approach and asking for volunteers.
If you are interested in occasional proofreading of my stuff, leave me a comment or drop me a note to that effect. I will thank anyone involved when I post the story, so if you aren't into that, just let me know and you can become a stealthy ninja proofreader instead.
My plan is to rotate among any volunteers so as not to drive anyone particularly nuts. With my relatively low output, I don't think keeping up with me will be much of a problem anyways. When I have something far enough along, I will send out one of those private stash link so this is all done right here on dA. Essentially proofreaders will see earlier drafts of what I'm working on--so they must be sworn to secrecy.
I want to emphasize that this is proofreading and not editing. I don't really want suggestions about how to change the story itself (aside from continuity issues and things like that). I have a tendency to second guess myself already, so editing suggestions might mess with my perverted, quirky mind.
Oh, and if anyone ever finds a typo or mistake in one of my stories, please note me about it. They really do drive me nuts.
