Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. My name is Amanda. If you're interested in my services as a beta, I suggest that you read some of my fiction to get an idea about my style. It's the best chance you have before actually... taking me for a spin, I guess. If you think that you might like me to beta some of your work, drop me a pm and we'll talk. When betaing I read through the entirety of what I've been given (chapter, story, etc) before returning it with comments made where I felt them necessary in a contrasting color of ink. As a general rule, I like to email back and forth or IM about the piece I've just betaed so that I can better understand how to help you.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and spelling are strengths of mine. Diction is very important to me as well. I'm very style heavy. I will do my best to help you develop your writing style and the individual style of your pieces, if you are receptive to that kind of help.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to come on kind of strong. My suggestions may often sound like commands. I promise you they aren't. I just have a little bit of a bluntness issue. I'm trying to do better. Honest. Please, remember that all of the comments I make are suggestions, nothing more.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer slash to het, but I'll beta both. I don't have much experience with femslash, but I will certainly give it a go if you ask me to. The universes I spend the most time with are Yu Yu Hakusho, Lord of the Rings, and Sherlock(BBC and ACD Canon), but I will beta for any fandom that I'm familiar with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like non-con pwp where the non-consensual act is the entire point of a story. It makes me uncomfortable. If non-con contributes to the plot, okay. I'll beta that. But I prefer not to beta non-con pwp. Also, no incest, please.
