Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not picky when it comes to my expectations of an author, but I'm very strict when it comes to spelling and grammar. I have a very keen eye for mistakes so I'll be able to catch any that may or may not be in a story. Still, I believe in constructive criticism above all else and will never be the kind of beta to tell you your story sucks. Helpful tips and advice will be given freely and in a kind manner.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel in grammar, spelling and sentence structure. I understand that sometimes we authors tend to write with such excitement, we tend to not realize whats actually being put down on the page.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not great, however, with characterization. There are many characters on this site I am not familiar with and, therefore, will not be much help in that area. If you believe characterization is an issue, I'm most familiar with those of Jareth (The Labrynth), any of Johnny Depp's characters, Dr. Cox (Scrubs), Logan (X-men), House (House M.D.), the men and women of Charmed, the characters of Twilight and any of the numerous Buffy/Angel characters. Even if I don't always write them, I only offered my services for genres I'm familiar with.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer non-slash fics, but will still beta them if asked. Other than that, I will read any kind of fic thrown my way. I'm always open to new variations of stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Like I said, slash fics kind of bother me if the characters in the original book/movie/tv show aren't gay but I'll beta them anyways.
