Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Updated July 30th: Besides those of you I have already gotten back to, I will no longer be accepting fics from Twilight. If I have already betaed or agreed to beta a Twi-fic for you, I continue to offer you my service. I prefer active voice to passive, meaning eliminating as many linking verbs (was, were, be, am, are) as possible. It makes a story much more interesting to read. Character relationships are a must. A story will go nowhere if relationships between characters aren't established. I don't really have any expectations at this time but I will make note if I think a chapter is too short or if a piece can use more detail.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am fairly good with spelling even though my older work contradicts that statement. I can get a bit picky with word choice and sentence structure. I will suggest stronger, more sophisticated words if you have a habit of using common, everyday words.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to let fragment sentences slip by as long as it is emphasizing something. I feel I know my commas pretty well and I can get nit-picky, let me know the level of pickiness you want from me!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories with at least a bit of romance. I tend to lose interest if it's all plot. I am willing to try beta-ing anything. I definitely favor slash/yaoi/shounen-ai/mm/homosexuality
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will let you know if I can't handle reading something so you can find someone who can.
