Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As an experienced beta-reader, I like to consider myself open to most (if not all eventualities). I tend to read stories through in sections (individual chapters if a novel, or separate pages if its a shorter piece) and re-read the same section to get as strong an understanding as I can of what the writer is trying to achieve. Only then do I consider if it could be better achieved by expressing something differently, or by a character reacting in a different way.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterisation is a strong point of mine, and I tend to pick up on inconsistencies in the way a character acts and reacts. As a former student of English Language and Literature, I am also well versed in grammar and am able to make corrections if a passage does not read correctly.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have an active life and like being busy, so if I am presented with a lengthy novel it will take time for me to go through it effectively. As a writer I tend to have a great idea that peters out as my attention dwindles; however, as a beta-reader I endeavour to keep myself focused and working.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am willing to beta most types of stories, but crossovers will only be accepted if I know the series; so I can beta better!br /br /br /

Both short pieces and multi-chapter novels are fine, as a whole or in installments. Original characters are obviously more difficult to beta, but I will gladly accept stories with OC's. br /br /br /

My personal strengths lie in science fiction, fantasy and medieval history, with some experience in war history and other genres. I am also a former lover of anime, and would still be willing to beta anime-based stories.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As above, crossovers are not my forté, and will only be accepted if I know both series.
