Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
beta reading style... there's a style to beta reading? Well, actually I guess there would be. As I've never been a beta reader before I'm not really sure how I'd describe my "style" but I would assume it would pretty much follow my writing style (in process at least, not content). Rad what's there, make note of/correct the more glaring errors in spelling, read again, make note of/change specific word usage/phrasing, read again, repeat until satisfied then submit revised version (and/or notes) to original author. br /br /br /

But like I said, never done this before so who knows. Mold me people. Mold me. :D

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I believe my greatest strength lies in the area of dialogue with vocabulary (assisted by the odd web/dictionary/thesaurus/)a close second. I'm also pretty good at catching most too/to then/than it's/its errors (though not perfect). I also like to think I have a bit of a flair for alliteration along with a fair instinct for structure and pacing but your mileage may vary.br /br /br /

I'm also told I'm rather good at plot development, both short and long term.br /br /br /

Now as far as area's that would be of benefit to this particular site. I have a wide and varied knowledge of both TV and movies (and to a lesser extent, books) though the majority of these do tend towards the comedy/fantasy/Sci-fi end of the spectrum thought there are more then a few dramas, etc sprinkled throughout so odds are I've at least heard of whatever Fandom you're writing in if not a fan myself.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
General grammar and spelling sadly. My first drafts tend to be filled with pockets of red lines and while those pockets have gotten further apart and smaller over the years a few still manage to slip through that I can't blame on my fingers moving slower then my brain.br /br /br /

I'm also unfamiliar with most teen dramas/cop/lawyer shows out there as well as a slew of anime/cartoons (though I'm pretty sure I could ace a test on Kim Possible and at least pass on on sailor moon.)br /br /br /

Oh and I over use the comma to an extent that would put any English teacher into fits of despair the likes of which they may never recover from.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Comedy for a start. It's not so much that I'm not a fan of the drama/angst (just look at my own work posted here will tell you as much) as it is that I love a good laugh more. br /br /br /

Content wise though I can't think of anything that would be safe to post on FF.net that I wouldn't at least give a once over even if it wasn't my cup of tea.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
will you look at that. They actually have a cup of tea section on this thing. Brilliant. As above, so below. I suppose if there was any real hard preference for material I'd rather avoid it would be from those fandoms I'm not overly familiar with and that has more to do with not feeling like I could do the author justice with my peer review as it does with my own limitations.
