Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have only beta-read for very few people other than myself before, but I tend to auto-correct other people's writing in my head as I read it. Whether it's a fic or a published novel I always tend to notice the flaws. It's something I can't help but do, and I often feel compelled to mark up books and send them back to the publisher with my corrections (I have yet to actually do this as I view marking in books to be sacrilege).br /

br /

If you would like me to beta-read for you then please be open to suggestions for re-wording. I will not rewrite your fic, but I may change a sentence or /

br /

I am willing to beta for authors with any level of skill, but I greatly prefer that your fic be well written. I would rather read the work or a peer or superior than that of an amateur. If you feel your work is not very good then do not fear! I will still beta for you, but you should be willing to accept constructive criticism. I promise I won't bite!br /

br /

Also, as it is not listed, I would like to mention that I can beta for Withnail & I fics (and would in fact be thrilled to do so).

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I feel that I am skilled at rewording sentences to give them greater clarity and/or to improve the tone of the writing. I am excellent at picking out grammar and spelling mistakes (in other people's writing at least).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do not enjoy rereading a fic unless is exceptionally good or it is one I myself have written. If you make changes to a chapter/fic I have already beta-read and ask me to do the beta again I will likely be a bit more careless with it. It is not intentional, that I can promise you, but it does tend to happen.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really enjoy angst, hurt/comfort, whump, and other such genres. I am fine with light-hearted fics as well /

br /

I tend to only read slash but am open to gen./no relationship. If your story has multiple relationships as long as one or more are slash I will consider /

br /

I am ok with most genres and warnings!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't read het. or femslash. If you are an excellent writer I may consider it, but your chances are /

I don't tend to like OCs very much, but don't let that dissuade you too much; there have been a few I absolutely loved.
