Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am one that has a keen eye. My style is to work with minuscule details and work up to giant ones. The only thing I ask is that if I ask you a question about how you are doing something please don't skirt around my answer. I need the answers to figure out how it needs to go. I ask questions because it is my feeling that although I may be betaing drastic changes or larger changes are important for the original author to decide. Ask me if you have a story and I will tell you if I know the fandom and willing to beta.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a member of the grammar police. Mechanics, spelling, word usage, etc. It is all on my radar. Also tenses are a big thing. Really the easiest way to say it is I am detail oriented. I am good at digging down to the nitty-gritty.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not one to decipher on my own. By this I mean when the tense, paragraphing, or other huge things are off, I am not comfortable making my own opinion on it. It is just not right in my opinion. Also I am not comfortable with must have nows only because I like detail. I'm not saying I won't help, but patience is a virtue.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer stories of topics I know. I am not a one topic only by any means, but I apologize ahead of time because I would prefer to not have to research it. Also I'm okay with one shots as long as there is length.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm sorry, but uber fluffiness not my thing. I'm not saying a good romance is bad. Heck I don't even mind sex scenes. It is the over the top love fest with pet names and no plot line out of the fluff. Now I'm not saying fluff is out, but there is a line. Also not into bashing fics. That doesn't mean no death or ill-will, but it does mean no evil at least towards other authors...
