Hello lovely readers! Alene236 here just letting you know a few things about me:
I'm a beta reader, and when I beta read I focus mostly on spelling and grammar. I also help with character development when I know who the character is and how the author wants to portray them. Just check out my beta profile and if you need a beta PM me.
I love getting reviews and PMs I try to respond to every review but sometimes I'm not able to get to my computer and respond. But they do not go unappreciated if they don't get a response.
I go on long hiatus's when I get overly busy with school. It's never on purpose it's just because I'm trying to pass high school and get into college. I still check for reviews and PMs when I do take breaks though and I do try to respond to those.
I love hearing ideas from my readers. If there is something you want to see happen in the story and you tell me about it, I might add it or I might write another story if I like the idea but it doesn't fit in with my current story.
I'm always up for co-writing with other authors or even writing stories for authors who have ideas but aren't sure of how to execute them, I'm full of ideas and I'm in a constant improvement mode.
