Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! I love reading and as someone who writes and edits for a living (press releases-not fiction, sadly) I usually find myself mentally editing stories as I read them, or playing with sentences until they sound just right. So I'd love to help someone with editing before their story is published.br /br /

I'd ask that anyone using me as a beta use Google Docs as our platform. It's completely free and AMAZING for the purposes of beta'ing!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My two greatest strengths would probably be showing versus telling and including emotion. I think I'm pretty good at capturing the characters' voices as well as adding humor. Also, I do my best to be a strict cannon follower.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can get caught up with real life, and may not respond immediately. I'm relatively new to betareading. In writing I sometimes lose the forest for the trees. Also, I am a possible abuser of the word "that," and the Whedonesque abandon to create new words. :)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love unusual stories and stories of 'verses that haven't been told yet, while staying true to cannon characters.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
AH (all human) stories, songfics, poems, horror, and OOH (out of character). Also, if you're writing a generic romance/lemon using a 'verse, I'm probably not your girl.
