Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! My name is Pidgeapodge, it's nice to meet you! I've helped proofread my international student friends' assignments for grammar mistakes and awkward wording before they submit it. It seems to help them, and it's given me quite a bit of proofreading experience. I've also had various writing skills drilled into me by my middle school English teacher, so hopefully that helps as well. I will be more than happy to correct grammar and spelling, as well as give suggestions regarding story structure and plot holes/weaknesses. Please make sure your draft is formatted correctly; even though I'm happy to help, I will not be able to read through a giant block of text with little formatting. Thank you and I look forward to Betareading!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- English Grammar

- American English Spelling

- Word choice (choosing words that sound natural, instead of awkward)

- Story structure

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good at helping with pacing, since my opinions likely vary from others'. I'm also not able to give much in terms of accuracy if I've never seen the work your fic is based off of. I may also make mistakes regarding British English and Australian English, since some terms are used differently there than in America. Lastly, I cannot read improperly formatted text. If your draft lacks punctuation, paragraph breaks, etc. then I will not be able to help until is is formatted properly. I'm sorry about that, please understand!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really enjoy many kinds of stories, including stories about friendship, family, humor, slice-of-life, adventure, and so on! This is a list of preferences, and chances are I'm forgetting other things I like as well!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fiction with highly sexual themes/scenes, explicitly sexual stories, and slashfic/femslash are all off the table for me. Please understand I am not comfortable with these kinds of stories. Thank you for your understanding.
