Let’s face it, everyone has bad days at work; days when no matter how hard you try you can’t seem to motivate yourself. It doesn’t matter what your profession is, there will be times when your mind is on other things, your focus is lacking, or you just can’t pull that necessary bit of information out of the air.

There is very little that is harder for a writer than letting someone else read their perceived masterpiece. The first person to typically look at a manuscript is a beta reader, or someone who reads it over with the intent of carving out plot holes and inconsistencies, among other big-picture issues.
Earlier this year, I offered my services as a beta reader in a Goodreads group, and have since beta read approximately 10 manuscripts, and multiple drafts of some. I’ve read everything from a memoir-style contemporary to a science fiction fairy tale retelling to an urban fantasy with a touch of mythology. If you’re interested in being a beta reader, take a look at my tips below before you get started.
