Author has written 2 stories | Harry Potter.
β : HebrewShira is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am big on the clarity of what is written. Sometimes it sounds nice to use long flowery sentences, but in reality it drags the reader on, making it more difficult for them to understand. After all "Brevity is the soul of wit," -Hamlet. I am also picky about proper grammar, it doesn't have to be perfect, just good enough so that it doesn't interfere with the meaning of the story. I am well versed in both American and British terminology and know some Spanish and Latin.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am alright with grammar, have an extensive vocabulary, and am good at reworking things already written. I am a perfectionist to some extent. I know Harry Potter like the back of my hand ( I have nearly memorized the first book)
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not a great speller, and can be quite stubborn with what I work on. I also could be gone for long absences due to intensive research on psychology at the local university in my free time.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Kane Chronicles, Zorro, and various musicals.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta read anything rated M or that is slash or het. I am not against the practice, but i do not wish to insult any same sex couples by being involved with writing that could be derogatory or misinformed.
