Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm all about constructive honesty. I know that we're all at different levels in our writing capabilities, and that's okay. So, if you're just beginning at fanfics, writing in general, or just think your writing needs improvement . . . (And let's just be honest, who's doesn't?) . . . Then I'm your girl. ;) My goal is to help you make what's in your head clear on the page. One thing I'm not about is correcting your spelling. Use a spell checker before you send anything to me. The mispelled word here and there isn't a biggie but if your copy is riddled with those red squiggly lines when I open it don't be surprised if it's rejected. I won't work with someone who isn't serious about improving their writing. I welcome with open arms anyone who wants to improve, no matter what their level.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization, dialogue, hunting down and destroying plot holes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm all right with grammar, but I'll be honest: the usage of a semicolon elludes me too.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll take action, romance, AU that isn't TOTALLY out of cannon, parody or comedy. Really anything you can think of with the exclusion of what you see below.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Sorry, but I'm a teensey bit of a prude when it comes to sex. A scene where sex is alluded to is fine. I will not beta for smut, slash or incest. I'm also not a fan of songfics, which I've always seen as a cop-out for original ideas. No, "Sark and Syd went to highschool together" type fics. Oh, and I've never understood crossover fics, unless it's meant to be humorous.
