Awesome banner by the ever fantastic Anne Cullen. Thank you, Anne!!

And, if you're in need of a cure to those angsty-fic blues, check out Twific's latest addiction, An Introduction to Swirl and Daisy: The Non-Romantic Romance, by m81170. There's nothing like the innocence and geeky wonder of young, anti-social love.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing.
AH. Sixteen year-old Bella Swan finds herself in love with Edward Cullen, her brother's best friend. But will he ever leave his girlfriend, Rosalie Hale? This is her diary and these are her words.

You know angel, I think they could use some more betas and it's still listed on the Twilighted homepage. You should complete the test and go for it. The worst that could happen is they tell you that they're not starting any new betas right now. (WIth the amount of stories in the queue though, I cannot imagine that they are turning down qualified applicants.) Good luck! ;-)

I downloaded the test/application, but I didn't understand one part of it. It is in the 3rd section where we are asked to beta a sample. It says in the instructiona to use the "track changes" feature in Word. My Word programs (both of them) do not have that feature anywhere. I am fairly computer literate and I do not see that feature.

Any ideas?

If you are using Microsoft Office 2007, click on the 6th tab named "review" and in the "tracking" options next to "balloons" you'll find "track changes"

Hope it helps :D

Do you ever open up beta opportunities to others that don't have writing experience?

I would be more than happy to assist, although I have not submitted stories here. I do edit other people's writing at my job. I have time and the desire. I will be happy to do the test if you might be willing to waive the story submission. Thanks, Nancy

I'm also curious about this. I'm not a writer though... is this criteria just to weed out people who only have a cursory interest in the position? I am a beta for two authors so I've spent a decent amount of time nagging people about their commas and dangling participles. Not sure how strict the writing requirement is (or why it's necessary)? Please let me know if this is something that is non-negotiable. Thanks!
