Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My style of beta-reading is very similar to my style of reading, as I have a tendency to copy-edit as I read. I tend to prefer reading works written with a firm grasp on grammar, spelling, etc. but I am open to assisting writers who feel they may need improvement in that area. Outside of general copy-editing (spelling, punctuation, diction), I also try to read for things that might require stylistic improvement (awkward phrasing, etc.). In cases where I think a change might be necessary, I usually try to offer alternatives, and also explain the reasoning behind the edit.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am quite good at finding spelling and grammar errors, regardless of what I'm reading. I find them in professionally written and (presumably) edited books and articles all the time. I am also fairly decent at catching problems with consistency.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a perfectionist. Although this is sometimes a good thing, it also sometimes means that I take a long time to finish an edit (generally because I read things a few times through to make sure I caught everything). I also have a strong sense of my own personal writing style, which may not be the same as everyone else's style. I am currently working on being more open to others' styles.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am pretty open to most stories. Generally, I can't tell whether I will like something until I start reading it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not big on omegaverse. Other than that, I'm pretty open.
