What Can Betas Do For You?
Betas give you that extra punch you need. That extra idea, that extra force you need to make your story THE BEST FRICKIN' STORY EVER! They give us the critical eye we need. My betas read my story like a book. From cover to cover. Then they go back and show me areas where they were confused, places that need more or less. Things I'm showing instead of telling. (Yes, I said what you think I said. There are places like that in your book.)
Let's face it, we all need 'em. They make us better writers. Not only from critiquing our stories, but when we BECOME betas, we learn a lot from critiquing their words. It's a give, get thing people. We give? We get back.
How did you come to know your betas? I got to know mine through the blogging world. And they ROCK!
We all need each other. I have become a better writer, because of them. I love writing and reading awesome novels.
Do you have beta readers?
How did you meet them?
