|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've not beta-ed before, and if you've read my early fictions you'll realise that I had a few mistakes (ones that would have been easily corrected with a beta). Since then my writing has improved and I want to help others improve theirs as well =]
I prefer to work with plots, so if you have them it'd be handy, then I could help you make sure that nothing irrelevant is happening. But if you haven't got them then a rough guideline to how long your piece of work will end up (and how long I'll be working with you) would be appreciated :)
One important note, I dislike American's who disregard any comments about the British language when writing a British fiction (i.e. Harry Potter). And the same applies to the opposite way round. I will beta for people who are willing to listen, especially people who speak/write American-English and need it to be double checked so that it's correctly British-English. I won't even pretend that I know how to do the other way round (and will end up needing a betareader for that one day XD)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Descriptive scenes. I could personally write forever on the background details, which is a flaw in itself, so I'm used to working on those and making them lengths applicable to the story's theme and content.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My main weakness is not being technical enough. I don't care for the proper technicalities of whether a fiction is 'good', I just read it and if it is something I like, I will carry on reading it.
I'll put more here when I can identify more.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter/Sailor Moon
David Gemmel based fictions
Mike Gayle based fictions
Kathy Reichs based fictions
Teddy Lupin fics
Puppy Love (Sirius/Remus) fics
M/M/M Family fics
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Generally, no stupid smut. I will beta smut fictions and lovemaking scenes, but really, if yours is going OTT then I won't be afraid to comment (for example, a lot of what you would find at Adultfanfiction.net is OTT)
No Snarry Love.
No "Serena is betrayed by all, gets pregnant and leaves with new hero" fics
