Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been writing fanfiction for over a decade and have a large number of stories under my belt. I enjoy helping other writers and giving encouragement.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I enjoy cleaning up typos, grammatical errors and structural issues. I'm willing to point out inconsistencies in timelines, plotting and occasionally characterization. I also give positive feedback and am easy-going with the authors I work with.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I might be a little too easy-going for some. I don't argue with storylines or plots (except for obvious inconsistencies)and I'm open for interpretation of characters, as long as they act appropriately and make sense within their own universe - or the world the author has set up. In short, I'm the clean-up person, not a co-writer. My betas are straightforward cleaning jobs - I don't do rip ups.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta short pieces (under 2,000) words, one-shots and slash/gen. I'd also like a summary before agreeing to beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer not to beta stories that feature members of my OTP with others, but it's on a case-to-case basis. I also don't beta hardcore kink, death fic, and/or infidelity fic, as I usually don't read these.
