Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am someone who is extremely thorough. Spelling is something I take seriously. While I'm not bad with grammar, I'm not a pro at it either. I can catch basic mistakes. I have a knack for rephrasing. I will always offer another way to say something, or little hints on what might be a good way to rephrase things. When it comes to plot, I am very good at pulling apart the motives and plot-holes behind each story. Characterization is also a strong point. Helping you with getting a deeper understanding behind your main characters thinking is important. If you don't want a lot of comments on your story about characterization flaws, or thoughts on furthering their depth, then please navigate away from this page.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are mainly within characterization, word-flow, and plot. If things don't make sense, I will tell you. Sometimes I might just leave a little note, and others I may leave you a long-winded paragraph about why this thinking process makes no sense whatsoever. It really just depends on what your story is. I'm also not afraid of length, no matter how long or short.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I occasionally overuse comma's. I also reserve the right to turn down a request if I don't think our styles would match up well (meaning I'll look at your other stories and make a decision). I'm not talented enough to guide a very new writer through the process, I'm afraid.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am open-minded. I appreciate a wide range of genre's and have yet to read anything that has set me off a type of story, well, except mpreg. I had a bad experience with it. My preference in a story is one that is character driven. I also probably like slash best, but that's a fandom-by-fandom basis.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not be accepting any stories with OC's unless you're really, really convincing, and even then I'll likely do it and not enjoy it. You'd be better off asking someone who enjoys OCs. No first person POV. No mpreg. As long as your story is moderately well-written I can help you out however you need. If it isn't, then I feel like we have to wade through too many problems on a local level (spelling, grammar, etc.), that we won't get to the global issues (plot, characterization, and relationships). I'm all about the global problems.
