Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! When I beta, I generally read through the whole story first, fixing any spelling or grammar mistakes that pop out at me. Then I'll read it out loud, making sure that the sentence structure sounds right and everything flows. After I think I've done that, I'll read it through one final time to ensure there are no mistakes and I'm done! If you would like me to beta your stories, just send me a PM and we can arrange a docx exchange or email and go from there. Fandoms I have beta'd for: Tv showsCastle, Misc. Tv showsDance Moms, Tv showsCharmed
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
One of my pet peeves is spelling and grammar mistakes so I am good at spotting these; especially if it is someone else's story. Also, I love to make sure that everything flows well. English is my first language and even though I am from England, I can alter my vocabulary to American English if necessary.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not a walking thesaurus so I'm not particularly good at thinking of ambitious vocabulary. I also don't know how long it would take me to beta a story: it can really vary due to University work and what I'm doing but I will prioritise your story over mine.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I do prefer very family orientated stories and action packed ones as well but I will pretty much beta any genre of story. I also prefer to beta stuff I know, meaning books I've read: (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Gallagher Girls), movies I've watched: (I'm not going to list them here) and TV shows I love: (Charmed, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, Miranda and many more). However, if you PM me and want me to beta something different, I will most likely take it if I have watched it even if it isn't my favourite.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not a fan of anime, comics, cartoons, games or plays. I don't mind light swearing but not if it is in every sentence. If you do send me something with lots of swearing I will most likely delete any swear words that I don't think are necessary.
