|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm fluent in English, although if you have a rather simple Chinese fic I MIGHT read it, depending on my vocabulary :Pbr /
Basically, I read through the story, fix up any spelling or grammatical errors (in a different color) and mention any plot holes. I generally don't like very clustered stories with no paragraphing, although it really just boils down to the author's preference. br /
Unfortunately I can be a little forceful with my ideas; it's a bad habit I'm trying to fix up. I just try to steer the author in the right direction, but betaing is by no means, to me, holding the author's hand along the way. I'm just here for corrections and consultation.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good at grammar and spelling, as well as spotting plot holes. *Note that I spell the American waybr /
Details and descriptionbr /
I'm also quite good at spotting characteristic flaws.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If the paragraph is huge, or the sentence runs on, my brain tends to switch off and I skip mistakes. I will try to go over them again though.br /
Action scenes and sex scenes- I'll read them and can tell if something's good or bad, but don't expect much feedback. br /
Overly dramatic soap operas- will be politely declined. br /
My grammar and spelling may be good, but are by no means perfect. And no, I don't rely on Spell checker.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Obviously I prefer to beta something I know about, although if it sounds interesting I might feel like doing my homework. It'll take a while though. br /
Any stories that have a good potential storyline will probably be read.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Songfics. REALLY emotional fics. Because I'm a slab of stone.
