Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't quite understand what they mean by describe yourself as a beta-reader...but here it goes. I was the editor for my school newspaper for three years so I'm used to going through drafts of work and proof-reading as well as making stylistic suggestions. My expectations for anyone I beta-read for is that you know how to use a paragraph and that you don't write in chat-speak. I would like it if you used description over dialogue but that is not a expectation. Contact me via PM.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at spotting things like dangling modifiers, spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes. I consider myself a good soundboard for ideas if someone is stuck and I am always willing to help out. As I said before I've been an editor for a few years so I usually know what to look for when I'm proofing a piece and I get back to people as soon as possible but I do not rush.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are that I sometimes mentally change things as I'm reading so I don't catch some mistakes which is why I go over a piece more than once. I think that is my only weakness but if you can notice something I'm bad at, don't hesitant to tell me and I'll post it here.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have no particular preference, though I admit a liking for non-canon pairings over canon. I especially like new takes one cliched plots, a good example is "The Marriage Stone" written by Josephine Darcy.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would really prefer not to beta male-pregnancy stories, but anything else I'm good for. If I find something I can't stomach, I'll inform you and then I'll add it here.
