Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Greetings to all. I'm interested in beta-reading 'cos I think I'm awesome. I've spent five years studying writing in all its various forms and I'm something of a tyrant when it comes to spelling and grammar. I love nothing more than going through a story, slashing away with my red pen!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can fix spelling, grammar, tense issues, point of view problems - seeing a problem and knowing how to fix it is easy when it's not my own work. (I suck when it comes to editing my own stuff.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I won't mess with your story lines of course, but I do like to fix dialogue. I read a lot of stories where people get incredibly formal with dialogue and it bothers me no end, but unless you're open to it, I will try to refrain from making dialogue changes.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll read and beta anything, so long as I'm familiar with the characters and they're written IN CHARACTER.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
To reiterate my previous point - anything that's out of character. It's not fan fiction if people are out of character. It's just a story that borrows names. I'm also not a big reader of AU pieces, but again, if the characters are still well written, I'm willing to give it a try.
