Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been working with one specific person, beta-ing back and forth (checking with Amita4ever for a reference, LOL). So, I thought I would open myself up to more folks. I have taught college level English and have a strong background in grammar. I spent a few years tutoring and also editing. I like helping writers get what they want down on 'paper'.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
In-depth knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary. Strong knowledge of science (biology, geology, forensics, genetics), history, military strategy,
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes my English background gets in the way and I can nitpick colloquial expressions apart. Sometimes it takes awhile to get used to the style of a writer too.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Pitch Black/COR, Firefly, Dresden Files (prefer books over the TV series), Battlestar Galactica (new), Twilight, Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs... Most of the genres I am interested in are sci-fi, fantasy, crime drama, paranormal, paranormal romance.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Songfics, stories that go too far beyond suspension of disbelief.
