Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I start out by reading the story once through first. Then as I go, I focus on typos, punctuation issues, grammar issues and fix what I see. Then I go back through and reread out loud and see where there are choppy sentences, run-ons, comma errors, and readability issues. Once I am done with that, I go back and read for storyline issues, such as conflicting dates, ages, names, and how the characters are acting within the storyline.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very strong with grammar, and can make it nearly perfect in regards to punctuation and sentence structure issues.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to speed read and sometimes gloss over words and phrases, but as I read more fiction and beta more, I find that rereading through a story a few times and especially reading it out loud, helps catch the things I gloss over on first readthrough.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta stories about Luke and Reid from As The World Turns, Sawyer and Kate from Lost, or Lucas and Peyton from One Tree Hill.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta mpreg, anything science fiction, and no graphic death scenes for any of the characters listed above. I can handle death fiction, as long as it's poetic and beautiful, and not just killing for the sake of violence and gore. I can write and have beta'd plenty of sex scenes both gay and straight, but I will not read or beta anything with extreme kink or fetishes, not to say that the sex between the characters has to be Vanilla, but if I as a beta have to spend hours trying to figure out if theoretically it's even humanly possible to perform the sex scene you just wrote, then it's not good writing and distracting. So, don't include it in the story you want me to beta.
