Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I tend to read the story/chapter once fully, to get the feel of the plot/characters before even thinking about any possible changes in style or structure that could be implemented. After that I pick out any glaringly obvious 'mistakes' and then delve deeper and deeper until I am 100% happy that I have done the best job I can for you. br /

br /

I expect you to be patient within reason (especially if the chapter/story is particularly long - over 3000 words - or complex). If you are not happy with the way I am editing then, as the saying goes, 'honesty is the best policy!' Tell me and I will change the way I edit based on your requirements - after all, it's your story!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm just going to list it... br /

br /

Editing grammar, spelling and punctuation. br /

br /

Ensuring the writing style makes sense for the type of story that is being written & that it is maintained to a high standard throughout. br /

br /

Checking any historical/factual data is accurate for the setting and time period. br /

br /

Improving the flow of writing. br /

br /

Tying up loose ends (you know what I mean). br /

br /

Being genuinely nice and encouraging.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Being too picky about word /

br /

Having a desperate need to make dialogue sound natural - it's a big pet peeve of mine.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Family/Drama/Angst/Adventure/Action/Sci-Fi. But others are welcome if they are from the following fandoms:br /

br /

Once Upon A Time, Wynonna Earp, Charmed, Orange is the New Black, Rookie Blue, Frozen, Orphan Black, Blue is the Warmest Color (film), Life Is Strange (game), The 100, 10 Things I Hate About You (film) and Lara Croft (game). And yes, I love femslash.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please, please, please! Do not message me asking me to basically fix and write the whole thing for you. I don't mean to say this patronisingly, it's just I've had one such request and was astonished when I read the story through and realised that there wasn't really a story there at all! The writer wanted me to add: 'spelling, punctuation, grammar, some dialogue and a bit of description'. As fellow writers I have to ask you - what could actually be in the document they had sent? (basically it was a string of ideas going on for pages and pages that, try as I might, I couldn't make head or tail of). Other than that, send me anything!
