| Calbee 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 5 stories | Harry Potter.
β : Calbee is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Professionally, I am an English teacher, so I guess I would focus more on grammar before looking into plot and characterization. If anyone is interested in acquiring my service, I would expect to be given a rough summary of how you would go with the story, so that I would know how to help you to lay out the things better in case of confusion.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I gained my experience from marking student's writing, I am very good at noticing spelling mistakes and misuse of grammatical items. I am also good at checking for holes in stories, e.g. anything that doesn't add up in the plot.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As most of the things I have edited/betaread/proofread/marked are my students' works, it would be a new experience for me to beta something chapter by chapter instead of a whole story.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Being an optimistic person who enjoys amusements when I can get them, I prefer to beta stories of romance and/or humour, though I don't mind drama from time to time.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Well... Horror, I think, and maybe Crack fics, as I find good Crack fics very difficult to write.
