Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to grammar. I also tend to add descriptions to whatever I'm editing if I think it would improve upon the story. I'd expect anyone who "wishes to acquire our services" to be able to put up with having some phrasing, word choice, etc. uncerimoniously changed. ;)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very meticulous in regards to grammar and spelling. I can't count the number of times I've been called a grammar Nazi. Additionally, I work fairly quickly, and can be counted on to have an average-sized chapter completely beta'd less than twenty-four hours from receiving it. I know how frustrating it can be to wait for someone to finished betareading before posting, and personally vow to avoid putting anyone in that situation.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
In the process of fixing grammatical errors, I often end up changing the entire sentence structure. I know that this may bother some people. Additionally, I'm still learning some of the more complex grammar rules ("that" and "which" comes to mind... gah!), and hope that anyone requesting my services can be somewhat patient in that respect.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any rating or content is on equal playing ground for me - if I had to choose a preferred genre, I would say that I would most like to beta read horror stories. However, I'm willing and eager to read any of the genres on this site. Really, I'm fine with anything. Cute fluff, or lemon scenes. Friendship, or total blood and gore. It's all good.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Everything goes - I mean, I work with some pretty weird people on a regular basis. There's some pretty crappy works, and some pretty messed up stuff. I've become desensitized. If you come at me with something that makes me say, "Okay, I'm not beta'ing THIS", I personally send you a framed award. No joke.
