Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! My name is Erin and I'm from the UK. I'm what you would call a 'word freak' and always getting told off for correcting people's grammar! I'm an aspiring novelist and my dream job is to join the Sherlock writing team (chance will be a fine thing!) I'm happy to help people who either need help with general grammar and the language or if they need a morale boost and constructive criticism. I aim not to amend writers' styles to fit my own and like to help people develop their individual talents. Your fic is your project and any amendments or suggestions will be entirely up to you. Even if you don't need someone to beta but a friend to bounce ideas off or need a chat about how you are and where you are with your fic. Whether you are just starting or in the middle of your fic, I'll be happy to help. I also like to be friends with people I beta for so always here for a chat.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at spotting grammar, punctuation, general rules of writing issues and how to make sentences have maximum impact but make sense. Also for finding alternative words and I can also help with the development of your characters and stories. I can also spot repetition and suggest how you can broaden your spectrum of words and language.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can overlook an important fact and can focus too much on grammar and forget the flow of the story. However, I tend to counteract this by reading once as a beta and then reading again as a viewer.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My strength is Sherlock as this was the show that introduced me to fanfiction and both my fics are Sherlock. I'm happy to do Harry Potter - both books and films, The L Word, Will and Grace as I know the characters and the story quite well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
The only thing I will not beta is underage sex or incest. Anything truly horrifying such as torture I will need to read over once before I make a decision. So other than the two aforementioned no-nos, I'm up for anything!
