Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I would love to carry around a red permanent marker with me everywhere, so I can fix mistakes. I myself am not the best writing but I have never had any trouble proofreading. My background includes proofing technical PhD papers - the content of which still confuses me. My career includes reading legal documents, thus I am accustomed to nitpicking and parsing.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have an internal urge to proofread everything! I provide CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. My goal is not to make someone unhappy with their writing but to help polish the author's words. My greatest wish is to support you and better your writing, but not to change your writing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am no author, but I sure make a heck of an editor!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything on Harry Potter, by Jane Austen, historical fiction, Disney Shows, supernatural/fantasy...it all goes. I prefer... imagination! So long as it's tastefully written, I'm good with any pairing!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Absolutely NO horror or super violent stories (excessive murdering and/or raping that has nothing to do with the story, but just included "for the fun of it"). No weird feces-related stories. No "hate" stories - you know what I mean.
