Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I tend to be fairly vicious in terms of cutting words/sentences/giant chunks of stories that don't seem to fit with the flow of the story. If we develop a good rapport, I can attach explanations of any cuts where I think you might have questions (as opposed to you having to ask ex post facto). Just be warned. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm mostly an APA/Chicago girl. MLA isn't quite what I have a background in, but I'm at least consistent. If you set the pace, I'll match it in terms of grammar rules, regardless of which set of rules you pull from. (In other words, if you aren't writing using American English, I'll still be okay to help you.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to lose interest in a story easily if there's any sense of weakness in the writing. You have to be a fairly confident writer if you're going to deal with me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't have much of a preference, but world-creating epics tend to not be my strong suit in terms of being an editor/copywriter since I can't keep track of the minute details. I do like a good action-romance adventure or mystery story, though, but that's more in keeping with what I like to read rather than what I will be willing to help read (since my background is in technical writing).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll read most anything, but I'm not a very good in terms of helping out with what I don't know. Stories wherein the characters discuss complex physics, for example, will fly over my head.
