Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I understand Emergency and Star Trek best in the form of the way it was on the show itself, or presenting canon, true to the real scripts shown. I've been writing all my life and enjoy especially creating new episodes to TV shows I adore. My favorite genre is Emergency, a close second is Star Trek. I understand the characters of each very well and I frequently watch the shows to pull images or research facts and tidbits on characterization frequently for my own website. I am experienced in finding consultants on medical, and fire technology as I have done so to help out my own stories in the past. :) If you'd like basic typos like spelling or punctuation taken care of, I'm really good at that.(Raised around Catholic nuns and rulers. LOL!) I am an avid Trekker for Star Trek stories, having dabbled in online role play games by email with fiction stories with other fan authors. I'm good at knowing all the Trek characters on every Trek TV series except Enterprise. I am also seeking a beta reader who'd like to perform the same services for my fiction in a trade off.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good at spelling. I have a very good working understanding of emergency medical services at the EMT-Basic level and have self researched the paramedic level extensively as a hobby in terms of fiction writing. I also pick the brains of the paramedics and firefighters I work with as part of work and as a member of a community emergency response team at a local fire station. I will not change any of your writing. I will merely check typos, and punctuation as a screen. I do know characters well in the shows I have written for and can help you with your dialogue. I have a skill at tying together plot elements offered in those stories unfinished to polish up endings. I am a very visual writer and reader. I can help you add descriptions to enrich your scenes action wise. I might be good at bouncing a crossover between the shows for which I've written so far.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a strong canon writer and that is my best strength and skill to offer you as a beta reader. I will not tweak plots or offer suggestions on my own. I will do so only if asked specifically. I am stuck writing and assisting in the third person view. For an example, see one of my stories for what that perspective is. For Doctor Who, I am only familiar up to the Seventh Doctor and Ace. For Star Trek and Doctor Who, I only know the TV series well and not the novels nor movies with any great alacrity.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am not very good at beta reading those stories which stray from the actual facts or away from the strict world view parameters presented in any aired television shows themselves. I like to stick with what was as I viewed the programs as a fan audience in terms of characters. For example, in Emergency, if you have Johnny marrying a mystery new woman and having kids and calling Roy's daughter Jennifer, then I am not for you. Sorry, but I really like experiencing the process and helping out those writers who would like to preserve the magic of the original shows' flavor in the TV series I am familiar with. Canon fanfiction writers are rare. And I am that kind of fan. I have no length of story preferences. Bring it on! *grinning.* The only story files I can open are .doc, .rtf, .txt formats. I use Word Pad, Edit Pad Classic and Open Office for editing programs.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash, abuse, rape, Mary Sue, non canon series fiction straying from original series premises, or NC-17 (sexually explicit fiction.)
