Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I try not to take over the voice of the author, but to enhance it. When a sentence or paragraph needs revising beyond simple spelling or grammar issues, I will make note of the problem and give a suggestion or two to correct the issue, leaving the ultimate revision up to the author's discretion.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Psychology is my strong suit, and I will call out an author if the characters are grossly OOC. I also excel at grammar and word choice. Sometimes, its the subtleties that make all the difference.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am still known to make comma errors regarding certain subordinated phrases. I'm working on it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a sap. I love working shippy fics.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do slash. And if it's not my ship, I can't often stomach it.
