Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I work with writing in the style of the show/movie/book you're writing for, as well as with spelling errors and OOC moments. As a Beta style, I go through and delete sentences I find unnecessary, correct spelling, and I will sometimes suggest rearranging the order of events. Ultimately, this is your story and I want it to come across the way you intended.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- I'm studying literature at university, so critical reading is a skill I've been working at now for quite some time.

- I believe in the integrity of authorial intent. I want to help you communicate your story more clearly, not make your story my own.

- I am comfortable working with you if you have trouble with English; it's a nasty language to write in at times. I have a comfortable knowledge of French, if that helps anyone.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
- I don't always get back to people quickly, so know that there might be a wait of about a week at most to hear back about your story.

- You may not like all of my suggestions and if you don't, please let me know and explain what the issue is so that I can work on that.

- I will most definitely be taking a hiatus or three in the next semester. I'll make sure there's ample notice beforehand so you're not left waiting on a beta-read!

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not super picky, send it over and I'll give it a shot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I tend to have trouble with original characters, but I'm always willing to read an OC story anyway. Most of all, I absolutely refuse to read stories containing incest or physical abuse. Violence is alright, but abuse between partners isn't welcome here.
