Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, sheepish grin aside, I have never done beta reading for anyone else before nor had any of my stories read that way, so I come with no experience on hand. So long as it's a story in one of the topics mentioned below and it's in story format, I'm more than up for doing what I can. More than anything, I'm open to ideas so if you want me to beta read something a certain way, feel free to let me know. I would greatly appreciate not having to read anything that hasn't at least gone through a spell checker because really, while I understand that writers can't always catch their own mistakes, I honestly feel that running a basic spell check is a must. If I do end up with anything of that sort, the first thing I plan to do to it is run it through Open Office and send you back the results.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I tend to read and write stories that "look" like stories, so to speak. Not so much into songfics or poetry or even scripts/plays. I'm pretty OK with grammar, spelling, punctuation. I didn't fail College English, if that's any consolation. On top of that, I tend to be OK with catching grammar issues. (For those of you glaring at my own writing, I don't proof read it.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have trouble reading stuff where people use chat speak, or anything in play/script form. I also have a full time job that may slow me down. I can usually get through roughly 10,000 words a night if I'm just reading something but will likely go slower if it's for another person.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Happy stories, comedy, romance, and anything that ends happily. Not to say I won't read anything else, but happy works for me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Don't have anything I couldn't stand entirely. :)
