|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a university student studying psychology. I've been reading fan-fiction from various fandoms for a decade now, and I've been writing my own for about as long. I'm a prolific reader and am also working on my own original fiction works.
As far as my expectations go, I would prefer if any documents were put through a basic spell-check first. The more spelling and grammar checking the author does, the less time I have to spend checking it myself which allows me to go over other things such as plot flow, characterization and organizational issues!
I prefer only to beta-read fanfiction from the categories I absolutely know best, in order to ensure I give back the best results I can.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm excellent at picking out small spelling, grammar, tense and structure errors that can be easily missed in an initial look-over.
The better I know a series, the more specific I can be about character detail, and flow of the story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm only human. We all make mistakes sometimes, and I may miss the odd thing in your writing. br /br /
With the way I beta-read, I'll change things I want to change, and make notes about why I did such-and-such a thing. You may not like my changes, and I won't force anyone to use them, however if I see that I am continually fixing the same sort of major problem and the author continues to leave it in, I can get a little vexed.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love humor, but only if it has a greater purpose. Other than that, just about any genre is fair game, regardless of length.
Any story with a lesson is good for me. I enjoy longer more involved fics over one-shots, but I will diligently read either.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Parodies, crossovers. Self-mutilation and rape unless they are properly introduced and addressed seriously.
