Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello ::D I don't have too many issues re: the contents of what I edit. But! My head aches when I attempt to read fics that don't have the teensiest consideration for grammar. On the upside, I really enjoy reading other people's work. I love contributing to the production of anything, esp. if it means sharing ideas. So as a beta reader, I will not only edit fics style-wise, but also substance-wise. Also, if I become your beta reader, you can expect me to read your piece at least thrice. Seriously. On the downside, it will take more than a day, since I generally let chapters 'stew' before I check them again.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a gut writer, so likewise, my editing skills are based primarily on intuition. I'm okay with basic grammar, and punctuation, but I would say my favorite part about editing is being able to give the writer new ideas. Style-wise, I've edited a couple of amateur newsletters before, and my bosses have, at times, complimented my output. Substance-wise, I've been told that my ability to describe things thoroughly is spanking. ::)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Punctuality would be my weakest spot. I'm online on an average of three to four times a week, so I can't do 'speediting'. Technically, I have a tendency to replace words I find weak, and omit lines I find unnecessary. Re: plot-advice, my mind runs wild, so my stories are always complicated.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would love to beta horror, adventure, suspense, and romance. Generally, slice of life stories. I love character interaction, as I have this fascination with what different types of people think about in secret. I would also like to beta fics that are heavy on dialogue, narrative and descriptions.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Lemony, citrus, orange, whatever you call physical intimacy. I can handle mild physical interaction, but making out is as far as I can take. I also can't do scifi, and I can't write comedy to save my life. And, as I've written above, I have absolutely no patience for 'fics that don't have the teensiest consideration for grammar'. I'd rather avoid working on pieces that have an excess of smileys.
