Author has written 9 stories | NCIS, and Scandal.
β : boymommytotwo is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been writing for 20 years, but most entirely non-fiction. Fanfiction is my first foray into publishing anything in the world of fiction. I'm basically just a huge fan-girl, so if you need to bounce ideas or want to brainstorm - come my way!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am great at seeing story arcs, or where there's more development needed of a character or reasoning or storyline. I'm a very reflective person, so I tend to need substance in the stories I read. I am a grammar fiend, a word snob. I enjoy characterization and development of relationships. I generally encourage a fairly quick pace in stories, but have been known to let a runon sentance or two through (hey! sometimes it serves a purpose!).
I believe constructive criticism is the cornerstone of any good relationship, and being a beta is no different. I will be very honest with you, and always try to do so lovingly.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a terrible speller but always recognize when something is wrong and use the dictionary. :) I also take a few liberties with staying "within character"... but I can ride that as lose or tight as you want to. If somethings super-OOC, I'm going to say something because unless it's explained, it's likely to bug me.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a ship addict... and mostly romance, UST, H/C, etc. Some family. Het, slash, anything and everything inbetween is cool with me. Conventional or unconventional... I'm of the opinion it takes all of us to make the world go around. I tend to want to read things in fandoms where I watch the show, but I'll give anything good a once-over.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I generally would not choose to do gen or team-only/action fics. Also, unless overtly sophisticated, crack!fic is not usually my thing. Also, if you're sending something to be betaed, it's my opinion that it should be your best possible work product. If I can't make my way through it, I'm going to tell you so.
