Beta experience: I've probably been editing as long as I've been writing.  I've edited fanfiction in the Once Upon a Time fandom for authors FairieTales4ever, Ethereal_Wishes, Emilie Brown, I'm2Old4This, and others.  In the Caryl fandom, I'm currently editing for Geektaire, CLADD, NotEnoughTimeOnMyHands, BettyBubble and a few others, and have recently edited a published work called 'Beat of a Heart' by Brittany Basham which can be found on Amazon.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I will beta pretty much anything. My squick factor is really low.  However, I will not beta stories involving incest.  Not that we'll find too many of those on this site, thankfully.  Just a heads up of what my limits are. I also will not beta fics written in FIRST PERSON, nor any fic where either Carol or Daryl dies ... anything else is fair game.  Wait!  I just found something else which totally squicks me out ... sex between Dary/OC or Carol/OC.
Additional Comments: I was a TA for four different English teachers in high school.  English was, by far, my strongest subject.  I also tutored in English, Maths and History while still a student myself.  I have a decent grasp of canon and am more than willing to brainstorm with you if needed.  I love helping other writers while making friends in this new fandom (new for me at least lol).
