Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Liz. I'm new to betareading, but not entirely unexperienced. If you'd like me to beta for you, i'd be happy to as long as i'm familiar with the subject you're writing about. If you are erratic in your writing, i will call you on it. As it annoys me when people don't update, at least without telling their readers.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Staying in character. If i think a character is O.O.C, i will leaving a note, and suggest a way to improve on that. Dialouge comes quite easily to me, and when it doesn't flow correctly, or you have worries about it, i'll try to give you some tips on how to fix it.
'Reviews'. I'll often leave a 'review' of the story, to give you a feeling about how a reader would view this chapter.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do miss grammar errors, but not often. At times, my 'reviews' will come off kind of judgemental, but i try not to be.
Word documents are not always compatible with my laptop, and i may not be able to accept them.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer humor or romance. Mainly OCs if romance, but slash is fine as well.
I won't take a couple i'm not a fan of though (such as Stella and Adam from CSI NY)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Angst-Ugh. nothing i hate more then a whiner.
Fluff and/or overly sappy romances-They're annoying, i'm sorry. Action-Mostly because i myself cannot write action scenes, and i probably wouldn't be much help to you. Any cat. i haven't written for, i probably won't review just because i may not know the cat. well enough, and wouldn't want to hinder your process.
