Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a trained journalist and editor; it's not my professional career, but it is something I have studied and loved for a long time. I am happy to review and offer suggestions for others' work. My only expectation is that you come to me with an open mind and as many complete sentences as possible ;) I don't want to write the story for you. I want you to write it and be proud of it-I'm just here to help!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am an excellent editor; I can proofread like nobody's business. That includes fixing things like unintentional run-ons, comma splices, misspellings, and/or other general errors. I can also offer suggestions on improving both your voice as a writer and the voices of your characters. One of the great things about fanfiction is that we can offer new perspectives on characters we love, but we still want the characters to be and sound true to themselves. As a writer, I am generally confident in my own voice, and I want to help others feel similarly :)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I would say my weakness as a writer is not always using the arsenal of language and knowledge I have under my belt, but I am working on improving that! Beta-ing is a great way to help not only me, but also you, improve as a writer. We will get to share ideas and think outside of our own perspectives.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am open to beta-ing all types of stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not that I can think of at the moment!
