Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a recent English grad who proofreads for a living. I'm a bit harsh, but I'll make sure not to leave any mistakes. I expect authors to understand that I'm not criticizing them when I critique their work, and to at least consider the changes I suggest. Of course, all creative decisions are yours, and I'll respect that too. I look for grammar, flow of ideas, repetitive words and phrases, and story comprehension.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am best at mechanics editing (grammar, spelling, things of that nature), and making sure that the flow of ideas makes sense for the audience.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Identifying different voices in fiction is not my forte. If you need help making sure your characters stay distinct in their speech, I might not be much help
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm fairly open to any kind of story in the categories I've specified, except for the "Not My Cup of Tea" issues below.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer stories that aren't overtly Mary Sue, but hey, it's fan fiction, and even my stories are a bit Mary Sue-ish at times. I don't do graphic horror, though CSI-level imagery is ok. I also don't trust myself to do poetry or songfics. They're not forms I'm comfortable with, and I wouldn't want to drop that discomfort on you. Also, no graphic slash. Trust me, I'll be less than useless.
