Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been doing beta work for my friends for the past year, mostly to help the dialogs be more fluent and to prevent them from rushing their narrative. I usually work by reading the story on a PFD and highlightning and placing notes all over the things that need modifications, then send it back to the author to review, then we repeat the process as many times as necesary until we both get satisfied with the result. This can be done either by DocX, mail, skype or facebook. A live chat sesion works better if you want to bounce ideas of me, but it can also be done by regular mail since it could be difficult to schedule meetings with different timezones and my erratic work hours.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I work best with third-person dialogues and narratives, also descriptions of people and sceneries (at least my degree works for something). I work better with short stories but I'm not opposed to look over long ones. I'm also good at brainstorming, since I've been told I have a really active and bizarre imagination.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Since my native language is spanish I have some troubles when using very technical jargon, but nothing a dictionary can't help with. I also have troubles with first-person narratives since I'm so used to reading in third or second person.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love BL and yaoi, romance, adventure and humor stories. And if I'm familiar with the fandom it's even better. The ones I know the most are The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Naruto, Katekyo Hitman Reborn and Fullmetal Alchemist. I've got others but this are my favorites. You can check what other fandoms I know on my favorites list.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta anything with graphic pedophilia and/or rape scenes. I also won't beta any M!Preg stories, not because I don't support it but I just don't want to think/read of any specifics about it.
