Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am not going to pretend that I'm particularly experienced when it comes to beta-reading, however I have edited many of my friends' stories and have a keen interest in eloquence and grammar. I'm not aware of the usual beta-reading etiquette, but personally I'd like to be in contact with anyone I beta-read for, and I would also appreciate the freedom to change a bit of sentence structure here and some wording there, etc. etc. However, I would always notify the author of any changes, however small, I made. While I would certainly take any beta-reading task seriously, I wouldn't like to work with anyone who wouldn't have a sense of humour when it came to their writing and my own editing of said writing. I am an unusually cheerful person (most of the time) and look forward reading fabulousness!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, eloquence and characterisation. I will tweak sentences if I feel they could benefit from tweakage, and will always stick in a semi-colon or apostrophe if you've accidentally left them out.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can only beta-read for fandoms that I am a part of myself, which limits me somewhat, although I am a huge geek and am probably a part of far too many fandoms for my own good. Also, while I view it as attention to detail and quality, some people perceive my beta-reading style to be overly picky. However, I assure you that whatever comes across as critical is just me trying to help. =)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not sure if I have preferred style as such... I'm good for one-shots, multi-chapters, whatever really. I guess my favourite genre is humour/romance, but other than that...
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to beta anything too angsty, unless it had a redeeming amount of fluff at the end. I also can't deal with character death. Sorry!
