Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am exactly what my normal profile tells you...nothing more; nothing less. I am willing to read everything that comes to me, and there are some things I do look for. I think the most important one would be whether or not the characters are - in fact - in character. It does not matter whether or not they become who it has been destined by the authors, but certain personality traits should be reflected. This is probably the most important thing in my opinion to keep while writing. It keeps the integrity of the character the original author was trying to create.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths? I guess you could say they're grammar (understand, please, that I am American, and any editing I do for grammar will be based on American grammar rules), spelling, and flow of a story (i.e. how you move from one section to another, and does the story stay consistent with what you've written previously). I am honest with my reviews and suggestions. However, honesty does not mean I don't like something.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can be TOO honest with my reviews and suggestions and may make people think I don't like something. I'm more of the type to tell you EVERYTHING I see at once (grammar, spelling, flow, or if something just doesn't make sense), and to some, that can get a bit overwhelming. However, if you submit something and tell me what you are looking for me to find, then I concentrate on that aspect only. If the writer does not specify, I give them everything.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Not picky, but I reserve the right to decline something if I feel I cannot help you.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Out-of-character stuff. I tend to delve into the lives of characters and try to become familiar with their personalities. When a character does something out of character, it really detracts from the story.
