|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, my style tends to run with my tastes, meaning that I have the most fun when I'm looking over something I know about. I don't mind doing things out of my taste, but then I can't catch all the mistakes, because I don't know the fandom well enough. As for my "Style of beta-reading", in the sense of correction, I tend to take what the author(ess) sends me, and when I find a mistake I'll surround the correction in double parentheses, meaning (( Insert correction of mistake here. )) after the mistake. That way it's easier to find them. br /
Anyone who wishes to use my beta-skills, is welcome to request it of me. My expectations are few. 1)If you don't like the way that I beta, I'll try something new, but I need you to tell me. 2) If you decide not to use my talents any more, I'd like a little note, telling me so. That way I don't bother you with pestering notes like: "Have you got another chapter for me?" or "Why haven't you sent me anything new?". Which I may be likely to do, as I tend to get addicted to /
I've been beta-ing for a few different writers here, if you'd like references I can give you their names, after I ask their permission of course.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are in spelling, punctuation and grammar, writing wise. I tend to be easy to deal with and very laid back. I don't mind if you yell at me when I do something you don't like. I also can write romance pretty well, so hopefully that means I can help out with that if you need it. I'm also rather quick at fixing things up. I usually read things through at least twice when checking up on things.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
With my quick fixing up things, usually I'll get the major things, and miss some of the smaller mistakes, if I go too fast. There can be days when I won't get online at all (very few and far between, trust me. I'm addicted to the net.), so that you might not get your beta'd version as quickly as you normally do.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't mind beta-ing any story, I'm pretty ecclectic so far as tastes go...
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to beta anything below PG-13. Anything lower generally can't hold my interest, which means I get bored with it and kinda just run off site to do something else.
