Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader I tend to steer clear of anything plot-related unless it is severely impeding the clarity of the story. I check for spelling and grammar mistakes (of course) as well as general stylistic issues. As an American-English speaker I try to focus on using words that an American character and American audience would readily understand. I have always appreciated people writing with an ear (or eye in this case) for the vernacular when dealing with their characters. I also look for things that may take away from the story like geographical errors, mathematical errors and general consistency issues.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are finding spelling and grammar errors, inconsistencies in story line and language.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are in dealing with any story written for characters who speak a different language and even more specifically, non-American style English.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories that have characters I am familiar with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer to not beta any story dealing primarily with smut-related themes or song/poem/vignette style stories.
