Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am fairly experienced at editing and proofreading, since, as editor-in-chief of my school's literary magazine in the past, I had to edit and proof every single piece of the 200-plus pages that we published at least two or three times. I actually rather enjoy it, so I think I usually do a pretty thorough job.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am quite the stickler for grammar, so anything I beta will be quite correct in that respect. I have also been told that I can tell when dialogue is realistic and when it is not. In addition, I pride myself on having a good vocabulary. Therefore, I am usually able to spot redundancies in word choice and suggest alternatives. Overall, I am a perfectionist, which serves me well in editing, since I do not overlook many things. Oh, and on more specific terms, I'm pretty godd at making sure boys still sound like boys in slash.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My skills lie more in the area of technicalities, rather than character accuracies. I'll be able to tell you if something is really OOC, but that is not something that I tend to get too wrapped up in when it comes to fanfiction. Of course, if you want me to pay special attention to that, I can.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have any genre or style that I prefer very much over others. Slash and femslash are both completely cool with me. But I'll read most things.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like it when people use homosexuality as a joke. It's not funny. It's like using someone's race or gender as a joke. Other than that, the only other thing is that if I'm not familiar with the fandom (or part of it, in terms of long TV series and that sort of thing), I probably won't do it. That's all, though.
