Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta one of the main things I'm concerned with is homophones and spelling mistakes as well as cutting down stupidly long sentences. It's something I'm aware of when I'm looking over my own stuff as well, so I'm not doing anything to your work that I wouldn't do to /

br /

I would make my edits in a different colour which would mean you were able to see what I did and where the mistake was made. br /

br /

The only expectation I would have of you is that you would listen to me and at least consider any of the changes I made, or if I said someone was acting out of character. Not that you would need to change anything, just that you thought about it

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My skill lies in the fact I will read it a few times slowly so as to be certain that I've done everything I can. Homophones and common spelling mistakes tend to jump out at /

br /

I'm good at understanding characters and working out what their motives are if you need help with that at any point.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'll be honest and let you know that in real life I have mild dsylexia so I might not be able to get every spelling mistake. But if I don't it really is because my brain just skipped over it and moved the letters around.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer stories that are in my fandoms - 'Doctor Who', 'Torchwood', 'Merlin', 'The Listener', 'Supernatural', etc. But even if I don't know the characters I'd be willing to read it over for you, just be aware that I won't be able to correct things for continunity or if they act OOC. Who knows I might even gain a new fandom
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories I don't like happen on a case by case basis. I would struggle to beta something if I couldn't get into the story, so send me a message and let me know a bit about what your story is and I'll let you know. If I struggle with it I'll keep going until you are able to find someone better to beta for you.
