Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been an unofficial beta to friends before (and to my mother with her college papers), and a while back I felt it was about time I take up the task of beta-ing here - to help strengthen other aspiring writers, and as a learning experience on my end as well. Please be patient with me, and I will do my best to serve the people who request my services. In beta reading essays and letters for friends and family, I often concentrate on spelling, grammar and context. In beta-ing fiction, however, I try to be a bit more broad. I may look at how the characters are presented, wording, sensory detail/emotional impact, and so forth. I won't lie though, even then I sometimes put a level of emphasis on spelling and grammar.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've been told I excel in spelling, and every now and again I get comments on my organization and word flow as well. Whether any of that is true, however, apart from spelling I do not know - I'm kind of my own worst critic, so sometimes what people see is good about my work I see as needing improvement.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As far as my writing is concerned, one of my biggest downfalls is my habit of unknowingly writing run-ons. Thus, I might not be able to recognize a run-on when I first see one, depending on how it's phrased and/or punctuated. And this is more of a personal issue than a writing/betaing issue, but at the same time has to do with a lot of it - I sometimes have a bad habit of procrastinating. So if I don't respond in a timely manner and there isn't anything like exams or other school work that might be holding me back, you may want to prod me with a stick (politely now) to remind me or get me moving again.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm currently a full-time student and working towards obtaining my BA in English. Because of this and my procrastination habit, I can only beta one-shots or short multi-chapter fics (no more than three to five chapters) at this time.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Regrettably, I cannot beta any fic rated M or above. This mainly has to do with my moral standing and for the sake of my sanity. I can handle strong language in moderation, but I would rather not beta fics with an f-bomb every other sentence. Darker stories and themes I can handle, but no slash please.
