β : ranger5 is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have written quite a bit. Style wise I can catch obvious spelling errors that the spell checker doesn't (such as fowl instead of foul)I prefer being e-mailed the document -- suggested changes will be put in bold with the edited info in parens (). Generally try to get documents back to original writer iwithin 7-10 days.
Expectations, not to be accused of flaming when I have questions suggestions.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good at catching "wrong word" spelling errors. General suggestions for adding detail or closing plot holes have been accepted well by those I've pre-read for before. I often add suggestions on how to show & not tell and otherwise add color to the story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling, I'm an average speller so helping fix wrong word choices (as per above) is strong -- spelling unusual words less so.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Strongly prefer Ranma/Love Hina/Tenchi/Inuyasha & some Naruto. Though I'll admit that it's been a while since I've read/watched anything but Ranma & Tenchi. Willing to review about any -- AU's where being a canon cop isn't necessary.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Really depressing pure angst stories. While some are quite good, they leave me depressed so I often avoid them. Angst mixed with hope are fine.
