Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
You have to be completely upfront about what you want from the very beginning. I am very thorough in my editing; I will pour myself into the process of editing grammar and analyzing every aspect of your writing. If you don't want detailed editing, or if you only want it in one area, you need to specify that for me. I also need to know a little about your story before I will agree to beta it. This may seem a bit demanding, but it is for the best...the only way for me to be the best beta I can possibly be is to go into this process knowing exactly what to expect. In short, just tell me what you want and I will do it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am an excellent dialogue writer. I can definitely help you if that is a weak area. I am no expert in the rules of the English language, but in general I am an excellent speller with decent grammar. I am an expert at identifying characterization inconsistencies. I can do this because the characters (in my opinion) are the most important part of every story, therefore meaning I focus on characters more than anything else when I read.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I suck at descriptions. I don't spend a lot of time in my writing focusing on information that cannot be revealed through dialogue or character emotions. If you need help building up the setting and other background details, I won't be of much help to you. I may be incredibly meticulous in some areas, but I am still very much a broad-idea person. Other notes: I can't edit my own work; just the work of others. I also tend to be brutally honest. This can be good or bad, depending on the kind of person you are.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Once Upon a Time is definitely my favorite category to beta for, but I will do any of the specific categories I tagged. Also, if you wrote for a category I didn't tag, ask about it. I will beta for any book, movie, or tv show I've read/watched regardless of whether or not it's tagged on this profile.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will beta M-rated material, but only if it isn't the entire focus of the fic. I won't beta 100% smut pieces. I won't beta slash/femslash pieces. I won't beta anything with explicit rape scenes or incestuous scenarios.
