Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am very thorough as a beta-reader and a bit of a grammar nazi. If I point an error out, it's not to harass you, it's because that's what my job is. ;) I won't beta anything from someone that hasn't gone through at least one effort to fix the errors he/she has made herself; in other words, don't send me a text with "he sew teh mono and it whas gr34t" and expect me to clean it up for you. I'll be happy to give you pointers on spelling, grammar and writing in general, and if I think a major change needs to be done to a story, I will always mark it but leave it up to the author - it's your story and your style after all. Minor spelling/grammar mistakes, I will simply correct. I tend to leave my comments visible in a document so you can see and perhaps learn from it. Lastly, if the story is from a fandom I don't know or don't know very well, I'll be asking you for some basic info, so I don't mistakenly correct things that are okay, and so I know some of the backgrounds your characters are coming from.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am thorough and tough, which usually doesn't sound very endearing, but I _will_ find your errors and point them out to you, which is what a beta is for. I also translate some, and can do translations from German, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian into English. I can also translate from Danish and Swedish into English (the other way around is just too much hassle at the moment, sorry!)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be slow. People who want me to beta will have to be patient, especially if it's a long story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories with some thought behind them. I reserve the right to say no to stories without plot, horrible spelling (like I said above, at least bother to use the spell check _once_) or impossible scenarios (as in, "X is a man but gets pregnant because I like the idea of that". You have to come up with a better explanation than _that_, buddy).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything like what I listed above.
