Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I studied English/American Studies at my university and plan to become an editor, so my grasp of English should be quite sufficient. I am also more than willing to give advice about others' stories and share my opinion about a scene or story. Since I discovered the hefty little comment mode in MS Word, I usually correct text that way instead of using red brackets and colorcoordinated corrections based on the writer's mistakes and errors. I try not to distort the writer's style with my corrections and keep them to the bare minimum which sometimes doesn't mean anything. I also firmly believe that even the worst stoy can be improved with a bit of guidance and help especially ones that are based on a great idea but doesn't live up to the /br /

Based on the lenght of the text I receive I usually finish corrections from 1 hour to 1 week.
