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.
I  was mulling over this story and how I've never been completely happy with it. It keeps bugging me.  I have some ideas about how I might "rescue" it.  In the meantime, I moved it to my scraps folder.

I've got some other projects to get out of the way first, but if you have some thoughts on changes, think I should just can this story altogether, or if you want to tell me I'm crazy (especially) and the story is fine, please drop me some comments. Thanks.

Writing erotic fiction to embrace my passions and satisfy my soul.

I love comments/notes/e-mails (it's the only feedback and motivation I get) and invite constructive criticism.

If you find any typos or grammar errors in my work, please note me. I seek total eradication.

I'd love to hear from anyone interested in creating illustrations or visual art related to one of my stories, note me! I don't like to ask because most artists are pretty busy already.

Wow
2 at once.
Better be careful or we might come to expect this.
Anyway I'm sorry that your considering dropping the Victory series.
It would have been fun to see where that one was going.

Any way thanks.

Two at once? You mean chapters on Victory?   :-)

I'm still planning to finish it, but figured I'd take a break from so that I can look at it with fresh eyes. I just don't get the "warm and fussy" feeling with it for some reason. Can't quite put my finger on it. My favorite part is actually still to come in the storyline.

Glad to know that someone at least found it interesting.

Looking forward to your future creations.  Some of the upcoming chapters of my in-progress story Tasha's Infiltration remind me of your military-type work as well.

Hmm, that would be a lot of fun and could work out really well. I always struggle for time, but would do my best to make time for a project like that. Illustrations related to what I have with Tasha's Infiltration would be one way to go (I'd absolutely love that).  Doing stories and pictures paired together in an original story has worked well for some other people (essentially a paragraph or two along with an image). I've never tried to write dialogue to go along with images for the traditional graphic novel approach, but think I could--even a written story story along with an accompanying graphic novel could work well.  Now I sound rambly, but it's because potential ideas are pouring in.
