Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an aspiring editor who uses writing to hone her skills. I'm willing to edit just for grammar and spelling, just as I am willing to edit for story content. I ask questions about characters, their motives, and where the plot is headed. I also note the things that I really like. br /

br /

Any writer must take into account that I am also a college student. I do have a 1-2 day turn around time. I know it sucks to have to wait to get edited writing back, but school does come first. I can do rush work on most weekends, if there is a need.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, continuity of character/keeping it canon, descriptions
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer, I have difficulty with dialogue unless I'm very familiar with the characters. As an editor, I often overanalyze actions by canon characters if they are not true to the character.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Short and long stories, most genres are acceptable
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories with detailed rape scenes, excessive self-mutilation, poetry, out-of-character-ness for the entire story (otherwise you are writing original fiction using someone else's character names)
