      And sure! Alpha and beta readers are similar, but a little different.
      Alpha readers get a look at the first draft. They talk mostly about plot and characters and things such as that. (Although we do chat over grammar and wording too.)
      Beta readers get to read the manuscript after it’s been edited. They’re a little more picky with wording and grammar, but they also look at plotting and characters as well.
      Hope this helps! πŸ˜€

      1. Ooh okay thanks for the clarification! I don’t think I can sign up for either one (if you ever have them) coz I might not be able to commit plus also I’m not sure if my feedback is good enough. I hope the people who sign up are good! XD

        *is very excited because this is the first time someone ever wanted me to rant about Star Wars and my ships*
        *gets up on soapbox*
        I don’t like Kylo, first of all. He killed his own dad (Han Solo *sobs*) AND he told Rey that she was nothing (#arrogantandannoying). He is totally evil and he kidnapped Rey!!!
        But Finnrey is so amazing. Finn cares about Rey, he’s worried for her (the part, “I’m just here to get Rey” *even more sobbing*) And plus, they’re adorable together. And they’re fanart is just 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
        *steps off of soapbox feeling accomplished*
        *still plans to do a blog post about it*
        Any other points to add, Jo?
