β : KatHarkness-Katara is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I try to be meticulous regarding spelling, grammer and punctuation. I also look for contradictions between character's thoughts, words and actions or similar. I may suggest alternative phrasing, removing or rewriting sections or other corrections, as well as basic writing issues. I understand typos happen, but I will point them out when I see them and would expect them to be changed. I will accept stories from categories other than those listed, but I may not be able to offer more than the cursory spelling/grammer etc.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good with the characterizations of my favourite characters. I have a British vocabulary, which would be useful for those using British characters. I also look up such facts as the education system or public holidays of other countries to give a more authentic feel to a story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do not have a good grasp of US slang, spelling and language. I sometimes favour one character over another, which can be detrimental to the story.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer action/adventure, family/friendship or mystery/crime stories, or crossovers.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not good with romance, but can write with canon, or realistic non-canon pairings. I cannot very well help with a story focusing on a poorly thought out pairing, especially not a slash or femslash pairing. I cannot help with rating M romance.
