|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My Beta-Reading style consists of three steps :Skim, Study and Solve. I'll skim it for obvious mistakes, study for any subtle grammatical or spelling errors and solve all cases (hopefully!). I will be at your service daily, but please be aware of any time zone differences. Just because you are awake, doesn't mean I will be! :)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar: I live for good grammar. Just don't kill me if I miss one error! br /
Spelling: Again, live for. br /
Other languages: If you want to add some French to your writing, but don't want to use a translator, I'm here. br /
Stuck for words?: You can always ask me. I will try and understand the gist of what you want to say, and help you word it. But I won't do it for you, because it'll end up being me writing the story. br /
Characterisation: People have been telling me that I'm really good at keeping characters 'in character', so I've added this too.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Romance: I suck at it. It will sound mushy and cheesy, and probably humorous. br /
Using the DocX: Don't send through the DocX, I don't like using it. Just contact me through e-mail and attach your chapter to it. br /
Action scenes: I fail in places where I cannot overload with adjectives.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything but the things mentioned below is fine with me. OCs that are not Mary-Sues are a-okay. As long as the plot is understandable, you can send it over to me.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Mpreg, incest, rape. BIG NO. I will NOT deal with any of those. EVER. Mary-Sues and Gary-Stus must stay away from me. Romance that is too graphic, again /
Gender-benders are...not bad, but I'm not huge on them either.
