Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm the person my family members always come to when they need something spelled or proofread. I'm very interested in helping my fellow writers improve their stories. I don't expect your story to be perfect when you send it to me for betaing, but I do expect you to make it look presentable. I'll turn down your request if it appears that you didn't make much effort with your fic. I'm here to polish your story and make it shine, not to do all the work for you. br /br /br /

I always consult a thesaurus whenever I write to make sure I don't keep repeating the same words over and over again. I'll only correct your writing style and punctuation if I feel it messes with the flow. I'll also be on the look-out for words that are being used improperly. br /br /br /

I believe that a good beta-reader needs be honest in order to help a writer become better. If you have a question about any changes or suggestions I make, please feel free to ask me as long as you do so politely.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good at catching grammar and spelling errors. For example, I know when to use 'your' and when to use 'you're'. I believe that bad spelling can ruin an otherwise good story, and I find it very difficult to continue reading one that is littered with mistakes. Therefore, orthography will be my main focus when betaing your work. I'm also pretty good at keeping characters in character.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I lack creativity and originality, so I probably won't be able to help you if you get stuck with your plot.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm currently in love with the Star Trek reboot, so it would be great to beta a trek fic. As for genres, I love angst, hurt/comfort, and horror with a dash of friendship/family thrown in. I prefer my pairings to be canon whether they're friendship or romantic. I would rather beta for fandoms with which I'm familiar.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a big fan of romance; the exception being if it's subtle and only a small part of the overall story. Also, no slash, incest, sex, or romantic non-canon pairings.
