Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm completely obsessed with grammar, spelling, punctuation - even commas or semi colons.
In layman's terms, I love correcting things. It's a hobby of mine.
I've had quite a bit of experience beta reading stories friends or people I know have written, and, as they were pleased with my corrections, I'm hoping to help other people!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Like I said, grammar, spelling, punctuation...If something is misspelled - God, it'd be funny now if it turned out I'd misspelled that! - or whatever, I have to change it. It's a bit impulsive. I'm good at noticing if bits of stories don't fit with the rest. If something doesn't fit right, or doesn't flow like the rest of the story, I sometimes add or take words away. As I'm from the UK, I can also Britpick for anyone who isn't sure about words!
I'm also good with sarcasm. Which always comes in handy, I think!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I think my only weaknesses would be beta reading for a show I'm not too familiar with.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll beta read any type of story as long as it's in a fandom I know and trust!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not too sure about any self-mutilation - unless it fits well and isn't just for the whole gratuitous blood factor. Ditto character deaths. I'm also not too keen on character bashing - if it's mild, it's ok, but if it goes as far as killing them off I'm not too keen on it!!!
