|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I guess I would look over the fic, mark any typos with comments, then make comments about style or grammar, or any more universal comments I may have (about characterization or something like that.
I would expect people to put their docs through a spell-checker before they send them to me, and not to take any criticisms I make personally. I know it is sometimes hard to separate your ego from your work, but it is possible (as i learned with some difficulty in Design School)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
proof-reading, grammar, style
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Large scale editing -- not the best person to ask about shifting chapters around in your novel
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
umm...I don't like Robin Sue stories -- if it is a RobinHoodBBC fic, as long as Robin and Guy are somewhat true to character I am happy to beta pretty much anything. If it is another fandom I don't really care.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
like I said above, for stories in the RobinHoodBBC universe I don't want to read a Robin Sue...by this I mean I don't want to read about an idealized Robin. He should keep his flaws. Also Guy can't be totally evil, he needs to keep his good points (few though they may appear to be, lol)
