Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I'm a flexible, eagar and happy to take a look at almost anything and give a little advice. I can beta-read lengthy, fully developed works to the smallest sections of prose. I am flexable in terms of time and I'm easy going when it comes to how my advice is used, I know that it is important that the beta-reader does not hijack the story from the author. I can provide any level of service, whether you only want a quick grammar/spell check or a full critique, just ask, I'm gentle and don't bite. I'm a fairly experienced beta-reader outside of this site, I work part-time as a proof-reader for editorials and amateur short stories for a British independent magazine.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a strong proof-reader and meticulous when it comes grammar, punctuation and general fiction layout. I'm a very character driven author and so I have a good all round knowledge of what is canon. I'm very speedy and full of tact and constructive advice.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm inadept at pure comedy, I have trouble decoding other people's sense of humour. Also, I use a British-English spellchecker and have a ingrained hatred for exclaimation marks.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Undeterred by violence, bad language, scenes of a graphic nature and so forth. Male/Male, Female/Female is not a problem. I will take a good look at anything but I prefer general fiction on the whole, along with poetry and long, epic narratives.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Comedy and fiction that is nothing but a long, indulgent sex scene.
