Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader I will check your spelling, punctuation and grammar. I will also go over your sentence structure and plot. My betareading style involves giving the writer one or more possible choices of correction and letting them chose which style they prefer. I do like to be given a rough outline of where the story is headed, and which characters are important to the story or writer and also details of these characters, even if they never appear in the story itself. I expect that once the betareading process has begun, the writer gives me a time frame as to when they expect me to finish, and also times that they are available to communicate over issues that come up regarding the story. I can beta stories that are not in my prefered ranges, such as movies or cartoons, but I will consider requests to beta such stories on an individual basis.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Story structuring and keeping characters in character, especially in speaking patterns. I like to give most stories a little polish so that they become more refined, but if the writer prefers that I not alter their story in this manner I won't take offense. I like to give the writer options, and let them choose where to go. I do not get offended easily.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can go a bit overboard in adding to the word count. Sometimes, I can also confuse a plot hole with a writer who is trying to hint to something. Also, unless I have re-read a work in the recent past, I can forget earlier characters or plot hints in later chapters.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories in fandoms I spend a lot of time in. This includes, but is not limited to; Harry Potter, Loveless, Supernatural, Gundam Wing, and Psych.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like to beta stories that are long, and then have a very unhappy ending. Also, I do not like to be asked to beta chaptered stories that have already been posted and/or continue to add chapters unless I have already offered.
