Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to beta reading, and am not too sure about the protocol, so feel free to message me with suggestions. If you want a review, I suggest you message me the document, and I will respond with a review, and comments. If you want more detail, eg for spelling or grammar, then I can respond with a marked up document.
I'd prefer a .odt file, as I use OpenOffice, but I think I can accept most formats.
For an idea of what I'm comfortable with, I suggest you check out my more recent stories, or the stories I have given positive reviews to.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think that spelling (UK English), grammar, and punctuation are my main strengths. I also like detail accuracy, though I must confess that Wikipedia is my main reference source.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Characterisation, human interest, romance. Anything that dwells too much on people I guess...
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Short snappy stories. Ones that make me have to think. Action. Surreal. Poetry. Mysteries.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not keen on graphic scenes, or foul language. Also with my attention span, best to steer clear of long rambling doorstops.
