|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi there. I'm SleeplessShinyOne, you might know that already, but who cares- Hi anyway! I am a friendly person who will not tear your story dead unless you ask me to or it is written entirely in txtspk.
I love to help people edit things, I really do, and am not cruel about my, er, how to put this... statements of necessary improvements. Feel free to PM me with a story you want me to possibly beta!
I will have your story back within a week- I swear. Unless I tell you otherwise, (ex. vacation, emergency, lack of comp. access) or you wrote a novel, it will be back within a week.
Quick Warning! My username should imply that my "work hours" are EXTREMELY varied (It's 1:47 AM now as I type this) if you have issues with emails/PMs in the middle of the night/at crazy early times in the morning, please let me know.
I edit on a Mac, do make sure not to send me something in a bizarre format.
Hope I can help!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I pride myself on my grammar correction. In terms of writing with correct grammar, you have the right person. I will not hesitate to gently point out that your you're is over there with their they're. Also, I can research some historical stuff fairly well, for anyone interested in maintaining consistency. I always have new story-related and/or generally helpful links to email ya, if ya want 'em. I read with a speed unknown to human mortals, and I type with the same.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
In life, I am impulsive and tend to rush. I am easily distractable and my corrections tend to be "all over the place" and out of order. Also, my seplling smoteimes si lakcing. ;)
I am not the greatest at concise and short sentences sometimes, so I don't catch as many run-ons as I should. Also... I tend to be too nice with criticism. If you desire the harsh literature-music-movie critic laying somewhere inside of me, attach a note and say something along the lines of "I WANT SHINY TO BE METICULOUS AND EVIL IN HER EDITING."
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like anything, really, truly. I will read anything you send, and cheerfully research the fandom even if I don't know what the heck it is. I prefer adventure, angst and drama but my secret weakness is fluff, so go on, tell me about cute things. I like them. ;)
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No. Not really. I dislike correcting poetry because I think that beauty should never be touched, so please don't send me poetry; I can't possibly tell you what to do with it.
