I've been writing online for over a year now, and as we enter 2014 I find that on Archive of Our Own my stories and related works have gotten 700 Kudos! I'm amazed and pleased. Thank You everyone.

I did find it interesting that 100 kudos are for one work "John Uncollared".
That is also a landmark. I have 3 digit kudos on a story!

I am also pleased that I went from a writer of drabbles almost to 366,000 words. I have met a life challenge.

Watch me do my happy dance.

I started writing FanFiction in the summer of 2012. When I read that early stuff, I see the typos staring up at me. I went to a lecture by a professional writer who talked about the importance of good readers. I found out that having a "Beta Reader" to read work before publication was a fanfiction tradition and began to look for one.

At first I just cold emailed readers and asked for suggestions. I got a work Beta'd and it was great, but my beta was young and I did not feel comfortable asking her to beta M work. Later, I found a community of older women who could help me, but I don't like to ask people to beta things that they don't ship.

Recently, I got an account at Archive of Our Own and there is no personal messaging or other ways to contact people. Not that I know of at least. I assumed that people communicate with each other using other sites, so I decided to ask here. Is there anyone out there who could beta my M work on AO3, or do you know someone that I can ask about this?

The works in question are in the Starcrossed trilogy: Moving, Damaged, and the soon to be released, Runaway.

I appreciate any help or explanations about proper process if I am going about it the wrong way. Details on the work follow. Thanks for listening.
