Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I’ve been a drama student for a long time and really like to see new writers develop. I have a network of friends who are performers and writers so if a little bit of help is needed they are on stand by. I don’t write Historical fiction but I have just been awarded a place to read History at the university of Oxford, so if you’re a stickler for accuracy I’d like to think I could lend a hand. I love fantasy, I really do and if I were to try and publish professionally it would be in that genre.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As a drama student my strongest points are character development and description, in any genre. As mentioned I am a history nerd and I value research so will happily spend time if help is required. I’d like to think that I am supportive, but honest.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I started writing as a way of managing my dyslexia, therefore meaning that I can’t spell for sh**. I’m fairly good with grammar but again, if you want a more technical reading I may not be the best bet. Sorry. I will devote crazy amounts of time because I’m a workaholic, but I do have to get some serious grades. In theory, revision comes first (it doesn’t but we wont tell the parents that!)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Whatever...
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll do it all. Even if it gives me nightmares (esspecialy if it gives me nightmares!)
