Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, hi! I'll just get to the point: I have no experience in beta reading. However, everyone's got to start somewhere, right? Usually, I'll read the manuscript once, and then go over it a few more times to edit the glaring mistakes. I may also sometimes input my own opinion or plot suggestions, but you don't have to follow through with them. (Apparently my mind is a very attractive garden for plot bunnies.)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I wouldn't say that I'm a full-blown Grammar Nazi, but if something sounds awkward or incorrect, I'll definitely point it out. I'm also a stickler for believability: just because it's fantasy doesn't mean that I'll let all of the Rules of the Universe slide. Another thing that I look out for often is characterization and consistency. Again, if it's not believable, then I'll jump all over it until it is.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good at making dialogue flow, especially CASUAL dialogue. That's what I get for having no social life! I also tend to sugarcoat things and apologize a lot because I really hate offending people, so if you want me to be tougher on you, just let me know and I'll do my best! (See what I mean?)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to beta stories about genres that I'm more familiar with so that I can help you more with the characterization. However, if you just want me to do grammar and basic plot flow, I'm not picky. Here are some examples:br /br /

I will beta any kind of pairing, even incest, slash, femslash, and "crack" pairings. I'll also beta stories involving OCs, but the OCs have to be well done or else I'll jump all over them.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Graphic sex, or sex-driven stories in general. I also won't do song-fics. Other than that, I'm not too picky.
