Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a librarian by profession, and have done a lot of reading in my time. I love helping people improve their writing, whether it's through a thorough line-by-line or a detailed comment on what works and what doesn't. I am harsh, but fair, and love cheerleading and giving credit where credit is due.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar. Continuity. Nitpicking the, uh, logistics of sex scenes. Inserting endless pop culture references. Blending humor with angst. I have a very wide vocabulary, possibly a little too wide. I'm also British, and happy to Brit-pick stories set in the UK.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Point of view slips! I'm working on it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
In the Glee fandom, I'm best at writing the Hudmel clan and Rachel. I am open to beta reading anything, although if I am unfamiliar with the content then I can only read for grammar, flow, and continuity. I especially like fluff, coming-out stories, first-time fic, and stories which don't take themselves too seriously. I am happy to deal with NC-17 fics, too.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am pretty much open to anything, apart from non-con and character bashing pieces.
