Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a writer primarily in the Lord of the Rings arena, though I am starting to branch out a little (the fanfic bug has bit again). I am very particular about punctuation and will focus primarily on that and how the story flows as a whole.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am quite good at re-wording sentences so they make better sense, and have a firm grasp on what I like in writing. I continually read authors that I consider very good, and always try to improve my eye.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I think my greatest weakness as a betareader is that I don't know as much about English as I would like. Though English is my first language, I have gotten a bit careless of late and know very little about things like hanging participles, or however that's spelled.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer adventure and comedy over romance, though I will read romance if asked nicely. I have a very high squick threshold, so very little bothers me. I used to be a member of Godawful Fanfiction.net, and have read the worst that has come through there.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
However...I usually can't stand OC stories in an established fanfic world. As ever, there are always exceptions, but I'm leary of any possible Mary-Sues.
