Hey guys and gals, Ace here with another help thread.
If you have a long series of paragraphs or even pages finished that you want to have proofread, and you have way too many questions to ask them all on the Grammar and Spelling Quick Questions Thread, then do not worry, because we have set up this page for you.
If you want a blog or story that you intend to post read over then here is what you need to do before you post the text as a Blog or a Tamriel Tales/Wasteland Tales Discussion.
1. Save your text as a Word document with an appropriate title like "YourNameHere Story.doc" or "TitleOfYourStory by YourNameHere.doc", but NOT "story.doc". This helps to avoid confusion, and so I won't have 10 things called "story.doc" and have to remember which story belongs to whom.
2. Reply to this page, letting us no you want your story to be edited, and be sure to add your word document to the reply using the "Upload Files" button. (It appears just below the smiley faces.)
We will get to your request as soon as we can. It might take a day, and it might take a week. It all depends on how many requests we have that were submitted ahead of you, and how long your text is.
I hope this helps.
I wanted to finally get back to writing fanfiction, but try writing in present tense. It's one my many weaknesses in writing. Any feedback on the story itself is appreciated, but that's up to you. Thank you for taking the time to check it for me.
Story Corner Hosts, are you still keeping this thread alive? I mean are you doing the editing? I seriously don't have the time right now. If you guys can't keep this up I will have to close this thread until the summer, unfortunately.
This is embarrassing. I'm a host and I'm just now seeing this thread for the first time. I didn't know it existed, or that we even offered this service.
I would be willing to help out a few people if they need it, though I'm on the fence as to whether or not this thread is feasible in the long run.
This is my second chapter, any comments or feedback would be extreamly welcome. Thank you for your time.
I'm looking at it right now. Feel free to add me as a friend if you want me to send feedback to your inbox instead of here.
Again, as I said in my message, I only marked up the first two pages. It should give you an idea of what sorts of things I notice in your work that could use improvement.
Not sure if this is still active or not, but I thought I would tack on a potential Wasteland Tale to see if it needs any changes. If I don't get any response within the next few days, I'll probably just end up putting it up, but I thought I would give it a go over here. Thanks!
When I get home from work, I'll give it a look. About 2-3 hours?
Not a fallout player, so I'll just keep things to mechanics and typos, if you don't mind.
Don't mind at all! Might be good to have somebody that hasn't played take a look. Hopefully you'll still enjoy it!
I like this a lot. There are a few grammar mistakes, but they don't really stand out. I like the rambling nature of the father, how he describes things with true emotion. I could really feel his love for his family, as well as his contempt of robots (and his annoyance with the eggs -- lol). Good job!
Thank you so much! All these positive comments are driving me to want to write more! Thank you for taking the time to read it!
