Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a college graduate with a Masters degree in Communications. I currently teach writing (non-fiction) for a living. I enjoy working with young writers and helping them develop their skills and voices. I have been writing fanfiction for over thirty years. I only have a few stories published here but have many at other sites that I will be archiving here as I get the opportunity. I have mostly written in the Lord of the Rings, BBC Robin Hood, and Pirates of the Caribbean fandoms. I'm currently getting very interested in the Avengers, Captain America and Thor.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, sentence structure, and helping authors refine points of view and strengthen character voice are my strengths as an editor. Since I mostly write romances, I'm very good at helping authors with difficult or awkward love scenes. I'm also good at assisting authors in creating realistic original characters. Yes. It can be done.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be a bit slow. I teach part-time and have a husband, young child and busy social life. I can usually only work with one author at a time. I will always try to give a realistic time frame if someone asks me to beta a story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am one of those odd ducks who actually prefers to read OC fics. I also like well-plotted romances between existing characters.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to beta fics that are overly contrived or silly. No "modern girl falls into Middle Earth," or "Avengers as high school students," please. I take writing fanfic fairly seriously and I appreciate other writers who do as well.
