|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm happy to beta most stories, and I'll try to read them with an open mind. However, do expect to receive your file back covered in red and full of notes; I'll try to make your writing the best it can be by offering as many thoughts for improvement as I can.
My preferred method of betaing is to give the whole thing a read-through, then go back and pick it apart.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'd say I'm quite good at finding odd sentence phrasings, and I'm pretty good with spelling, punctuation and grammar. I'm also known amongst my friends as an idea bank, and I'm pretty good at finding plot holes and inconsistencies.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'd say characterisation is probably my weakest point, especially if it isn't a fandom I'm very familiar with.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I quite enjoy reading more light-hearted fics, although I'm a big fan of drama and action. I enjoy reading in-depth multi-chapter fics, but short character studies, one-shots or drabbles are all fair game.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Sappy romances aren't really my forte, and I'm not overly good with heavy angst.
