|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've taken two creative writing classes at my high school, and I'm a creative writing major at UMass Lowell. I am a stickler for grammar and spelling, and I can't stand it when a writer's sentence structure becomes repetitive and stale. I reread things six or more times sometimes, just to be sure I got everything. As an editor I'm very, very thorough, and I don't hold back because it'll hurt people's feelings - but I give constructive criticism accompanied by suggestions of how to improve. I'm friendly and willing to help with anything. I love to edit and betaread, so please don't be shy.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, repetition, sentence structure, variance of tone, flow, spelling, character voices, dialogue (is it natural? is it stilted?), description, mostly the nitpicky stuff. I go over things with a fine toothed comb six or seven times.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Certain character voices, a lack of variety in fandoms, unfamiliar with some countries and their traditions and dialects of speaking.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Fluff, slow-burn romances, anything that makes me want to scream ARE YOU BLIND! at the characters, anything that shows strong friendships, Dean/Cas, Doctor/Rose, Ninth Doctor or Tenth Doctor, John/Sherlock, SuperWhoLock/SuperWho/WhoLock/SuperLock, Priestly/OC, parodies.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
MPreg, Wincest, Crobby, Priestly/Tish, non-con, Doctor/anyone but Rose Tyler, Roger/Mark, Jenko/Schmidt.
