Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I'm actually new at this, and have never beta-d anything before, but I proofread ALL of my friends' essays, papers, and such, and I won the county spelling bee once... so that counts for something, right? Lol. I love fixing problems with writing, and I'm a total grammar Nazi (that's what my friends say), so I'd be awesome at proofreading some stuff if my services are required! The only thing I expect of someone who wants me to beta something is that they at least know what they're talking about... and unfortunately, I don't think I'd be interested in beta-ing slash. I'm not in any way opposed to homosexuality; I'm all for it, because you can't choose or change who you love, but as a lot of slash fics that I've read are in very poor taste, I can't see myself getting past that to proofread it. Now, that doesn't mean I'm not open to experimenting, but if I find that I still have trouble, then I'll take that preference off. Anyway, that's about it... so pick me! Yay!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I know for a fact that I'm a great speller; I'm good at grammar, and I know my English like the back of my hand, so I think that I'd be very good with the technical stuff. I'm also really good with choosing the right metaphors and allusions in writing, and I think I'd be really good at just spiffing up a piece of work.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
To be perfectly honest, I can't think of a weakness that I would have in beta-ing something... though, again, that could be 'cause I've never done it! But please, don't hold that against me... If I had to guess, I'd say my only weakness would be VERY minor typos and such. Nothing big. :)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love movies and books. I haven't seen or read ALL of them, obviously, and I do have favorites, just like anyone else. I'm a sucker for romance, drama, tragedy, angst... all that jazz. And I absolutely love Harry Potter, Twilight, Final Fantasy VII (only)... among a lot of others. Just give me a try!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not really. I can't think of ones that I would just REFUSE to betaread. I'm open to a lot! Again, slash isn't really my thing, but I think (or I hope) that if a good one came along, then I could get past it and betaread. Just depends on how good you are! Lol.
