Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I focus on grammar and syntax first and foremost, because those tend to glare at me and make it hard to see anything else, haha. I'll also do my best with spelling, but honestly I'm not the best at it and if it doesn't show up as a red squiggly line I'm less inclined to notice it. After that I'll focus on style and word flow, basically checking to make sure there isn't anything I have to read over several times to understand due to awkward phrasing or something, as well as making sure there's variety in your word choices. Next, I'll worry about dialogue and seeing if it sounds natural or stiff, IC or OOC, ect. Finally I'll check for any other trappings to make sure it all comes together nicely. I'll also make sure characters stay IC and the world doesn't have any inconsistencies. br /br /br /

Typically any changes I make I'll put in parentheses next to the error/original sentence. If I have your permission to just make small changes myself (like adding an S to something that should be plural or something), I'll do that too.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization, syntax, and making sure words flow/sound nice.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I miss incorrect tense changes sometimes, and occasionally I'm too nice if I think you won't react well to criticism.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like romance, both the hetero and homosexual variety, and emotional pieces. Action, family, fantasy, pretty much everything else is good too. As long as I know the fandom/basic canon, I'm happy with anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Songfics bother me honestly, and I have no idea how I'd edit one, so please don't ask me to. Also, smut/hentai/lemon/whatever they call it these days, aren't really my area of expertise. I don't mind a scene or two, but if the entire piece is a smut piece I'm probably not who you should ask. I'll do it if you really want me to, but I can't guarantee a good job.
