Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I really and truly hate to see a story with a good concept and plot that doesn't get read because of spelling and grammar issues. I have some free time these days, and I've been struggling with some writer's block for a while, so I figure helping others with their work is a win-win. Nothing like helping revise someone else's work to get the old creative juices flowing. Really, I just like exposing myself to other people's writing styles.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm an English nut, no two ways about it. I'm the kind of person who will correct a person's grammar as they talk. As much grief as that has gotten me over the course of things, here I really think it can do some good. My spelling is almost perfect (even if my typing sometimes can't keep up), and I have an extensive vocabulary. Some people hate using the same word twice in one chapter but can't think of another to go in its place. I'm great with that sort of thing. I can help with phrasing and style issues, as well. I have some experience with this type of work, too. I used to do this sort of thing for research papers and the like while I was in school.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Once in a while I do geta little busy, and there are obligations I may be forced to put ahead of my beta responsiblities. If ever this is the case, I will send a PM to anyone to be affected by this.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories on movie and television subjects, stories where I'll know what's going on, so Science Fiction and mysteries are the best for me (detective stories, anything aired on USA, SPIKE or FX, movies that have come out in the last two or three years, almost anything on the Syfy channel, that sort of thing). As far as story genres, I like mysteries, dramas, comedies, supernatural stories, adventures. I enjoy a good PWP every now and again, especially if it's done well. I'll read just about anything, though, and I don't shy away from slash if that's your style.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't really care for strictly romantic stories. Don't get me wrong, I know that some people like them, but if romance is an aspect, I prefer a story where it would be secondary to something else.
