2012-01-30 [Linderel]: Then you can send it to us in a private message, I suppose. :) Or an e-mail. Depends on the length - it would be kind of cumbersome to read stories longer than a few hundred words in an ET message.
Alternately, you could look for someone to do it for you IRL.
2012-01-30 [Celtore]: *Nods* I've thought of that and the only two people who I think are good enough are totally a completely biast when it comes to my work. And so far it's 7, short, chapters. If it would be too much I understand
2012-01-30 [Linderel]: Well, we'll discuss it and let you know in a couple of days. Is that alright? :)
2012-01-30 [Celtore]: Perfect...It's not going anywhere lol thanks
2012-01-30 [Akayume]: So Lin and I have been talking, and here's what we think - if it gets e-mailed to one of us, we can open it in googledocs allowing us both to edit and read and make comments etc. We can do this, if you give us a bit more time to look things over and read.
2012-01-30 [Celtore]: You've got all the time in the world lol...I'm at a bit of a stand point in my writing so I figure get what I've got looked at then go from there
2012-04-06 [Ravenclaw]: Hello?
2012-04-06 [Akayume]: I'm here, sort of. :P It's the end of the year here, so I've had midterm after midterm after midterm. >.< Ugh.
2012-04-06 [Ravenclaw]: I just wanted to make sure since I hadn't heard anything yet. I figured people might be arguing on who would take such a large project.
2012-04-07 [Akayume]: We'll probably tackle it together. :O Lemme shoot Lami a message.
2012-04-07 [Ravenclaw]: I've only got the first 3 chapters rewritten at the moment, I've been sort of busy.
2012-04-07 [Celtore]: Any chance you have looked over mine at all?
2012-07-18 [Ravenclaw]: I'm beginning to believe I should find a different service. I know I've not uploaded the whole thing but has anyone even started on my chapters? I'm not going to bother taking the time to upload the whole thing if no one is going to proof it.
I know I said no rush but that was months ago when I added the story... four months ago.
2012-07-18 [Linderel]: Apologies. Both of our online lives seem to have kind of collapsed in the past months. We completely understand if you want to take yourself elsewhere; believe me, I started to frustrate myself a long time ago. If, however, you find a dollop of patience I believe we could get our act together and actually start coming out with comments in the near future.
2012-07-18 [Ravenclaw]: Considering I have no idea where to begin searching for a new proofreading service, I can wait a bit longer I guess. I've got two sequels to this novel in the works and it's hard to find the motivation to write and finish them when I know the first one is stuck in a constipated state of "Not quite finished".
2012-07-18 [Mortified Penguin]: I've been waiting for 14 months... *sniffles*
2012-07-18 [Ravenclaw]: Yours is like a couple thousand words long. You can't dump that into Microsoft word and have it proof it for you?
2012-07-18 [Mortified Penguin]: This wiki offers more than a simple spell check. And, as you can see by the example, there's no problem with shorter works. In fact, I think they'd be happier to receive shorter, easier to read works than novels.
2012-07-18 [Celtore]: I've been waiting for almost 7 months...good thing I have a close friend who's reading it over as well.. I want to cover my ass
2012-07-18 [Linderel]: I unfortunately cannot comment on your situation, Aina, because I still have no access to your text. I'll have to poke Akay about it. :)
2012-07-18 [Mortified Penguin]: Why does everyone on Elftown make me wait for over a year on things...? ;_;
