Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Let me say this first and foremost: I love a well done fic. Unfortunately, quite a few (though nowhere near all) of the really good ideas have authors who are... not as good at writing as they could be, to put it gently. I really hope I can help with thoes who have thoes good idea but need improvement.br /br /br /br /

Grammar is my main focus in my beta-reading. Sometimes, on a rare occasion, I'll help you with plot development, but not really; I'm just not good at that. If I do have what I believe to be helpful input I will offer it though. Also, I sugar-coat a bit, but not really. I won't say for every flaw there is something good, because that just ain't true sometimes, but I will try to tell you if you have really good points in your writing.br /br /br /br /

I'll read just about anything (almost), so please, give me a viable excuse for all time time I spend here. ;)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and punctuation. I'm also good with general wording of sentences and making sure they don't sound, you know, bad. I'm also good at spotting the over-use of certain words and finding possible synonyms to use instead. If you have trouble with Russian, Southern, or Scottish accents I can help out a lot with that too.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling and characterisation, but mostly spelling. I'm... okay at spotting OOCness, but it's not my strong suit. Spelling though... I can spot obvious errors, but I am an avid user of spellcheck so that kinda says a lot.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Pretty much anything. I would LOVE beta-ing hurt/comfort, angst and friendship fics though. And I mean absolutely adore.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash, I suppose. I mean, I'll do it, but if I can avoid it... Humor and crack!fics are kind of no-no too, mostly because it makes my OOC spotting ability even worse than it normally is. Again though, I'll do it, just don't expect me poiting out that "Oh, your Vulcan speech patterns are a bit off here" or "You may want to add a little something to that Mozzie scene, Neal seems a bit off".
