Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've beta'ed for friends on my own time before, and I'd like to think I do a fairly good job. I'm probably going to correct your grammar and spelling more than anything else, but as long as I'm familiar with the characters I can also give you a heads-up for any OOC things I spot. As far as the quality of stories I beta goes, as long as it's not in chatspeak, I don't mind lending as much help as I can.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm probably best at editing for things such as sentence structure, spelling, and grammar. For categories such as House, where there might be actual medical jargon being thrown around, I'm also likely to do research to double-check anything in there and correct any mistakes I notice. So if you're not the best speller, or you've got a huge medical mystery going on and want someone who's willing to take the time to double-check your facts, I'm good for that.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When I notice things are getting OOC, I'll almost certainly mention it, of course, but I'm not always the best at articulating how things are off in a story. So if you can deal with the occasional "It jut doesn't seem right..." then I'm still a good beta reader for you. Poetry's something that's always been a weakpoint of mine - I'm good for pointing out when the meter's off, but not much else.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything with humor/parody, friendship, or romance...things I like to read, I'd also like to try editing. I'll beta for angst fics, though I prefer angst to have some sort of purpose or reason. I'm more than willing to beta for things like slash and crossovers, as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Character death is something I avoid when I read, so I'd really rather not have to spend a good deal of time editing it, unfortunately.
