Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, if you're visiting by beta-reader page, then you might have already read some of my work. As a beta-reader, I can say this: the past two years have taught me that I am a better proof reader than I am a writer! I don't presume to be great at what I do, as I know I have so much more to learn. As a beta-reader, what I expect from anyone that wishes to acquire my services, is that you tell me what you expect from me. If you just want a grammer and spell check, let me know, as is the same if you want me to 'spit-ball' your ideas with you. You also have to be willing to take the criticism I give you. You may do what you like with it, but you have to be willing to keep an open mind and take it. That's all I ask!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Well, I'm good at grammer, spelling, stucturing of sentences, including an uncanny ability to spot what is good and what is not so good in someone's work. I have to admit it's harder to do with my own. I am also good at getting people out of their writer's block!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not dyselexic, but I do have a tendency to spell words backwards! Also, I am not very good with American idioms as I don't know what half of them mean!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I beta for mainly CSI: New York, and prefer stories that contain the Mac/Stella pairing or Smacked as we call them! But I am not opposed to any of the other canon pairings either. I'm also open to beta-reading NCIS, JAG, and The Good Wife fics with their canon pairings and the ones I've mentioned on my profile.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta stories that contain pairings of the same sex of slash fic as we call them. Not because I think it's wrong, but because where I come from it's not always accepted, so I'm still getting used to the idea. I may or may not change my mind in the future. I also won't beta any humour fics, as by nature I am not very funny and I don't think I could do justice to the authors or their stories.
