Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am perfectly capable of finding grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors, but I feel that this is (or should be) more of a minor consideration in comparison to continuity, logic, and plot/story-progression issues. I'm not afraid to give an honest and blunt criticism, but the decision to change something ultimately lies with the author. I'm merely here to give my opinion.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- I am polite and constructive, even with fics that need a lot of work (I have never flamed anyone, ever)
- I am a logical thinker - I am honest and sincere (I will tell you the truth)
- I am passionate about my fandoms - I don't take flames personally (I prefer bad feedback to no feedback at all)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
- I can be picky about which fandoms I will write/read - I can sometimes be long-winded with explanations - I am honest and sincere (I won't lie to make you feel better)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta any "Stargate Atlantis" fic. I prefer fics which include Beckett, but it is not an absolute requirement. I am open to both slash and "mature" fics as well. If you are very sensitive to criticism and cannot handle it, you may not want to ask me to be your beta. I firmly believe that everyone has weaknesses and aspects of their writing that can and should be improved upon, and if I see them, I intend to tell you what they are.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm open to most genres of fic, but my fandoms are limited to Stargate, Star Trek, Doctor Who, and a very select few others. If you don't write for one of those, chances are I wouldn't make a good beta for you, but you are welcome to ask.
