Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So, I tend to read things a couple times through before I'll get them back to you. Be very specific about what I'm allowed to do/correct! If left to my own devices, I'll change grammar, syntax, spelling, maybe suggest different words/phrases, edit out unnecessary passages or sentences, etc. If you don't need (or want) all of that, please be sure to tell me so we don't waste each others' time. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, but with spell-check, that doesn't mean so much. I am very good at flow, fixing it, helping words sound better, or coming up with alternative words with better connotations to help get the nuances of feeling and point across better.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a strong tendency to insert too many of my own ideas. Also, I don't have much experience in working with stories from any perspective except for first person narrative. Not that I'm not willing to give it a shot, but, it's not something I have worked too much with in the past.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Certainly stories where I've seen at least one episode/read one book/am even slightly familiar with the material and characters would definitely be preferred. On the other hand, if you don't need me to tell you that someone is very out of character and only need more abstract ideas/editing, I can work with anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Um, fluff/schmoop. I'll do it, don't get me wrong, but I can't contribute any ideas or much more than simple editing. My mind doesn't work in romantic ways so I'm fairly clueless about those sorts of things. This doesn't, obviously, include porn or anything of that sort, just people being all lovey-dovey.
