β : Calico West is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been reading and writing in fan fiction for awhile and would like to start growing more as a beta. If you are going to choose me to view your story, please be up front when you contact me what exactly you want me to do. I would like to give you more than editorial services, but if a proofreader is all that you are looking for, let me know before I start critiquing. I can and will help with your characters, their dialogue, the setting, continuity, and more. I am not going to try to change your writing style, only enhance it to make it better.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a sharp eye for finding spelling and grammatical errors. I edit and proof all of my stories, so reading my works might be an advantage for you as an example of what I could do for you. It is my goal to give you a quick turn around of your work. I can read and write fast and as I don't like to be kept waiting, I wouldn't expect you, the author, to he kept waiting either.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
At this time I have not come across any major flaws of mine during beta-ing, so I cannot say what is my biggest beta weakness, unless being picky about proper punctuation fits under this category. I promise I don't nag about it, though.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Laramie. I'm honestly signing up to be a beta for all of my fellow writers of the best western show ever created. I've watched every episode multiple times and know the characters so well I feel they are a part of my life. Other than Laramie, I would be willing to beta any of the various shows in the western category, as that is what I'm most familiar with. I am flexible with any kind of western genre, of hurt, angst, drama, family, humor and more.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As a Christian, I have certain values and beliefs that I will not set aside for a story. Therefore, I will not be a beta for any type of story that has sex scenes, extreme violence, any type of slash story, nothing over a T rating, and no T rating that should be rated higher. I do not use profanity, but I will not tell you to not use it in your story, however, if your use of profanity is excessive, I will turn your story away. I'm not trying to be unkind with my preferences, just wanting to retain who I am while doing something that I enjoy, reading and writing.
