Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My goal is to offer you constructive criticism that supports you as a writer while offering you clear, valuable suggestions. I've been writing and editing professionally for a range of clients for almost 20 years, so I'm comfortable offering helpful comments and edits that keep or enhance the author's voice instead of imposing mine over it. I believe that "correct" isn't necessarily the best end result, if it doesn't fit the story. I also believe that we can all benefit from an outside perspective to catch things (I still cringe at a plot mistake I made in one of my stories - easily fixable, but I was so far into it that I didn't even see it until a reader pointed it out.) It helps me if you're clear on what you want - I can be picky, or I can give you high-level, more general comments.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at making suggestions that keep your voice, not make it generically "right". I'm also great at reading for consistency and clarity. I am picky about spelling, and can be picky about grammar.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not great with poetry. Or parody - I have an off-beat, snarky sense of humor, and love stories with that sensibility, I'm just not a great editor for things written specifically as parody.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I gravitate to tv-based fics, but I'm happy to take a look at other categories. I'm going to most helpful with keeping characters in character for shows I have some familiarity with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't read stories that include sex-related violence, and I don't read horror.
