What kind of story is it? Not necessarily genre, but what's the basic plotline?

It`s fantasy, no vamps or other creatures though.

You know, a short story fits just fine at the appropriate Share Your Work board. If this story hasn't been critiqued, it may not be ready for betas. (Many people don't beta shorter works, believing they don't really improve from one final read when they're already polished.)

You need 50 posts to put your work up there. Besides introducing yourself, one great way to get those 50 posts is to critique the work of others. (The beneficiaries will feel like they owe you one.) Another is to dive in on your genre's board, so people who write it will feel like they know you.

It's not forbidden for brand new members to ask for feedback without having made themselves a member of the community, but know that it may not get any input from the most qualified people who could give it. I hope you can get what you need, but I also know how to greatly increase your chances. Hand around, get comfy, be a part of AW, then ask.

Maryn, pleased to meet you
