| OneShotSal 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 8 stories | StarTrek: Voyager, Harry Potter, and NCIS.
β : OneShotSal is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
In real life, I work as a part-time ghostwriter, editor and proofreader. As a beta reader, I prefer to read short stories, under 10,000 words. I correct technical issues like spelling, grammar and structure, and I also check for plot consistency and character voices.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Impeccable spelling and grammar in American, Canadian and British English. (I'm a Canadian living in the U.S. and ghostwriting for a British blog!) I never guess about correct grammar; anything I'm not sure about, I look up. I'm obsessed with consistency and am very good at finding plot holes.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm sometimes guilty of making alternate suggestions for words or phrases that are technically correct, but that I feel could "sound better" when phrased differently. Many authors don't like this. Please indicate to me if you only want the technical mistakes corrected.
Also, I don't like Oxford commas ;-)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
NCIS fanfics are my favourite, but I have extensive knowledge of all the categories shown in my profile.
I'll accept all genres and ratings. I also accept stories with warnings (kink, slash, character death, etc.). My favourite genre is Hurt/Comfort.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything over 10,000 words (give or take). I prefer shorter stories.
