    I need help, as Void has adeptly pointed out (here, in case you missed it).

    I have a rewrite in progress. The story was called "Harry Potter and the Mind Sifter" but I have a new title in mind. What I really need is someone to act as a 'sounding board' to help me decide which way to go on a few key plot points. I am adept enough at grammar and syntax, but do not speak The Queen's English (just The Bush's bastardized version).

    Any takers?

    As always, I'm open to plot discussion and bouncing ideas. E-mail me if you need someone to look over your partials/ideas/outline. Just don't expect me to fix up your grammar and such. That'd be like blind leading the blind.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Darius. That was my next stop if no fish at DLP were to bite.

    IP, that's really what I need - someone to tell me if the general idea is ok, or needs rework or just to be banned from existence. Grammar I can do fine on my own. I'll e-mail you sometime next week.

    Thanks!

    Feel free to email me as well Zany, I'm willing to discuss plot ideas and so forth if you wish.

    As it is I who am causing this mess in the first place. I would feel like a complete ass if I didn't offer my services as well, so if you need any help Zany, don'thesitate to ask me.

    Same as above. I'm no L33T spella, but I can hold my own. If these other cats aren't available, I'll try my best to help you.

    Void, I'd say you exposed the mess, not created it. Altho I think you'll be surprised when I give you the full details.

    Averis, thanks for the offer. The others seem to be available. I'd still enjoy another input, but leave it to you to determine if you have the time, etc.

    Thanks again, everyone. I believe we have a quorum. I start a conversation offline (PM or e-mail) to get things roling.
