Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Ok so right now I'm new to beta reading, but I can't tell you how many times I've read a story and gone "That was great, except the spelling, grammar, ect. was all wrong." It kills me a little on the inside. I try to make all of my stories correct, but I am certainly not perfect. Fortunately I am better at catching others mistakes than my own. As for beta reading style (I'm honestly a bit of a newbie so hang with me) I would look through it first for any mistakes that catch my eye, then go back and read it thoroughly. Also my computers spell check is my friend so I would probably put it in word for a second opinion on spelling errors. If you wish to acquire my services I would absolutely love to help, I’ll jest need advance notice because I’ve got a crazy life that demands a lot of my attention.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am actually really good at figuring out what strangely worded sentences mean, and fixing words that were incorrectly changed by our friend Mr. Spell Check. I’m pretty good at spelling and alright at grammar. I love characterization, that's the best part of beta reading as far as I'm concerned.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
It's and Its are the bane of my existence. I'm iffy on those but I'm working on it, I promise!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer humorous stories, I also love a good whomp of my favorite charcters. Friendship/ family stories are "da bomb" and angsty/ introspection is good to. Slash has to either be written well or really humourous in order for me to like it. oh and I love a good plot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm good with some couples, not with others. It simply depends on the show. I generally don't like OC's, and I truly don't like stories that are simply made for the slash (meaning: no plot just characters all over each other) I don't really care about drabbles unless they are linked to make a story. I try not to be picky though! :)
