|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a Beta I focus on plot consistancy, compliance to Cannon, and general wording issues. I like to work with the author through im when I'm reviewing and revising the work. I do focus on the cannon of the base work to the point I will have try to have the book (if a book) the story is based on near me for refferences. I can be a bit harsh about plot consistancy but no more than I expect from my own work. I will never downgrade your work, ever. I do expect authors to be willing to listen to constructive critisism, especially about orginal characters. No one wants to have someone calling their character a Mary Sue, and as a Beta it would be my fault too if this happened.
Grammar and word usage are also important but most often a secondary concern that is fixed quickly, Thesaurus Syndrome is also a priority to work with also. Thesaurus Syndrome is when an author finds a synonym for a commonly used word and misuses the synonym, its very common and just a personal pet peeve.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a real ability to work on wording issues and improving sentence stucture and flow. I have an excellent memory and this helps greatly with plot consistancy.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
The nitpicky details of some grammar rules.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would preffer to Beta stories based on works I am familiar with the cannon for or AU for those I am not.
Any other works not in my prefferences please send me a message to see if I can work with it. I will always be open to any other works than the ones listed they are just the ones I know best.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Orginal Character stories with out an Author willing to work on Character development.
