Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm OCD when it comes to spelling and grammar. I spend AGES on my own fics before I post them, making sure the wording sounds right. I like to make things sound like they come from the time period in which they are set, so it sounds more believable. For example, if the story is set in the 1860's, I don't use abbreviated terms such as 'c'mon' and 'hey'. To me it... it's insulting. Be warned that if I beta-read your fics, I might just go Grammar Nazi. Unless you ask me nicely not to ;) You have been warned :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a mild form of obsessive compulsive disorder that makes me spell and grammar check writing frequently. I study the subjects I write about religiously so that I can understand them as characters - their strengths and flaws, etc. If anyone needs help with such things, I'm your girl!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Pretty much my obsession to detail. I LOVE description, because it paints a picture in my mind. And spelling. And grammar... I'm a bit of a Nazi with that kind of stuff.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
As with most writers, there are certain characters I love better than others. But I don't let this stop me. I'm a sucker for science fiction and fantasy... of thrillers, mysteries, adventures, romance, family and hurt/comfort, even smutfic... don't be afraid to approach me. I promise I only bite as hard as you want me to.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
While I'm essentially NOT that great at writing romance and/or fluffy stuff... I will give it my best shot. Be advised that I do tend to draw a blank at that kind of thing... but I can offer suggestions as to what I think people would like to read... :)
