Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Editing to me is fixing spelling and grammar mistakes, making sentences flow more smoothly, and possibly making suggestions on the plot. I don't drastically change things by taking out paragraphs or inserting new ones unless given the go, and generally just do the fine-polishing. I'm willing to research background for stories I'm editing and to back off and just fix spelling and grammar. Whatever the "alpha" wants done. I can't promise any time frames for getting work done, but I can get things back usually within a few days.
Anything with French or Latin in it can be done, though I'm not fluent in it (working on that. Babel fish, anyone?)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've got all these grammar rules stored up in my head and excel at grammar as a consequence, though I'm also good at sorting out inconsistencies and making sentences flow well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to change words. I realise that the writer probably picked the word for a reason, but sometimes I think others sound so much better.
As a writer, staying off the romance, though I can't see what that has to do with beta-reading. So why put it? I can't think of any weaknesses as an editor and am filling space. Inconsistency of style, there's one for writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance could be great, but I'll beta any category of certain broader ones. I'd rather stick to movies, books, and the tele.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd rather not beta anime. Maybe Hellsing, but the above is preferred.
