|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have a great eye for detail and I tend to notice technical errors first (spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.), then continuity errors. I can beta-read for anything in the categories in black below; for grammar, spelling, punctuation and other technical questions, I can beta-read for any category at all.
I would request only that you take any criticisms in the constructive spirit in which they are offered. After all, beta reading is meant to help us all become better writers, and I think that's the goal of the majority of writers on this site.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I learned to read at age 3 and was writing stories by age 6 or so. I am an excellent speller (one friend calls me a walking dictionary) and I can also easily spot errors in grammar, punctuation, capitalization and tense. Knowing the rules makes stories much easier and more enjoyable to read, and I'm glad to help anyone who asks.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My memory is not always the greatest, so I do all I can to double-check my facts. If it takes me some time to get back to you with a continuity or characterization question, that's because I'm researching. I may not be quick but I will do my utmost to be thorough.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Almost anything goes. OOC is fine to some extent, but I do ask that the canon characters be handled with respect.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I have nothing against slash, but I usually don't read it unless it's done in good taste and handled with sensitivity. It can be as graphic as this site will allow, but if it's crude, I find it impossible to stick with. Also, I don't like slash for its own sake; in other words, if the characters are not slash in canon, I don't appreciate their being the subjects of slash fiction. I have nothing against slash, but it's not easy to do without its looking like gratuitous sex; so I would advise handling with extreme care.
