| J. Charelle 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 4 stories | Glee.
β : J. Charelle is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
While I may type informally when tired or overexcited (I promise not to keysmash at you unless you really deserve it), I emphasize spelling and grammatical errors where I can find them. More likely than not I will give in-line critiques or make use of those little comment bubbles on Microsoft word when reading over your work.
I will take stories of any rating, covering just about any subject matter. However, just because I am a beta reader, please do not fail to check for errors before sending it to me. USE SPELL-CHECK. It saves all of us so much time in the long run if you run a check first.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, visual reader (excepting the more...athletic...forms of M rated fic), cliché spotter, choppy dialogue (er...) smother-outer(rer). I'm usually pretty good about remembering where certain events took place, which can come in handy for continuity.
I'm really not sure what else I can do. How about you try me and we'll find out?
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
The exact nuances of professional jargon. I can't tell you exactly what a psychologist is going to tell the traumatized patient, or the exact workings of the legal system in Vietnam, but I can help you find out...
By-the-book grammar. I tend to fight with Word, especially in dialogue; what you say or what you mean doesn't have the same impact when it's exactly correct sometimes, and I won't know how to fix it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Glee: All genres, all but the crackiest of ships (Brad/Piano, for example.). I am quite partial to AUs.
I love angst. So much. I believe I would be able to read it for you and give feedback on plot points, at the very least.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Shakespeare; shows from MTV, BET, and the like; horror, zombies or gore (including vore, fics wherein one or more of the characters are serial killers or torturers), RPFs
