Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I expect a pretty solid thing to beta - I don't want to write a story for someone, I only want to check things through and ensure that it is correct and good to read. I would mainly fix any typos that I notice, fix grammar and punctuation so that the whole thing flows and that kind of thing. I'm unlikely to change the way anyone is trying to phrase something, because that's 'their' thing and I'm not trying to turn anyone's stories into my own. If you wish to see examples of the kind of grammar, etc, that I use, then please check what I've written as reference.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I tend to catch most typos before publishing anything. I use grammar and punctuation in a way so that it is easy to read, and so that the reader will pause whenever appropriate or read at the pace I want them to.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a tendency to use the same word often in a short space when I can't think of a better one that still gives the same atmosphere. Sometimes better punctuation could be used, but I'd rather opt out for the easiest one.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd rather beta stories that contain characters/pairings that I support (check my own works and my favourites for details).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta stories that are based on things I am not overly familiar with or pairings that I don't like.
