Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Reading is my favorite passtime and I'm happy to help others while keeping myself entertained. My addiction to Plum fanfiction has led to some great beta opportunities (and friendships), which led to exploring my interest in being a professional editor. I'm happy to say that I'm now working as an assistant editor at a publishing house as well as a freelance editor for several self-publishing authors.

I do most editing and suggesting using the "Track Changes" function in Word. If I make suggestions and you choose not to follow them, I'd like to know why so that I can better understand your writing style and purpose, making further suggestions based on those needs.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a good eye for noticing inconsitencies, monitoring plot development and keeping good pacing and flow. I enjoy combined brainstorming and think it's a great way to develop ideas into something solid. Can also help with keeping voices canon.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Some of the finer points of punctuation elude me, but I can catch most mistakes. I'm not the best at coming up with original plot ideas, specifically mystery elements.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Currently I only have time to add one shots or short fics to my plate. I'm generally a Babe, but I still have a soft spot for Joe and the occasional MM, so I'm happy to work with any ship. I do prefer to keep characters fairly canon.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Would rather characters not be too OOC, so if Joe is a bad guy, it needs to stay reasonable. The subject of death/grief is raw for me, so if it's going to be a central part of the story, I'm not interested.
