Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Where betareading is concerned, I look for how consistent and put together something is written. For example in stories I look at the plot as a whole then I begin breaking it up into sections as I read through. I expect to see that an author has at the very least spellchecked their work before submitting it for betareading. Also, I expect the author to have at least a grasp of how grammar and punctuation should go, as well as how they are able to be manipulated to suit something such as a story. I work as a Medical transcriptionist, and my attention/attentiveness to detail and the quality of the work I do are of the utmost importance to me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are the English language which is inclusive of punctuation, narration, grammar, etc. I am able to help someone to fix things in their stories or works they themselves may not see. An objective eye sometimes sees something a non-objective eye cannot. The quality of my work is in the 99% range of accuracy, and I have no problems helping others with the fine details I have so often times seen missing from stories I have read in the past.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Some of my weaknesses are historical references and/or facts, though I do try to validate before correcting something for someone. I will send back the original along with a revised version so my corrections, suggestions, or improvements are noticeable and easy to spot.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to read things that are more reality-based. By this I mean a non-alternate universe type of writing. There are some instances where I can and have no trouble reading alternate universe storylines, but typically if I am reading stories I like to stick for the most part to the original ideas of what the fiction is based on.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not adverse or against alternate universe, science fiction, or alternate reality works, but I prefer to stick to current universe and reality as much as possible.
