|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been reading and writing fanfiction for seventeen years (oh god, am I really that old?). I am very good at checking grammar and spelling. I am also good at spotting plot, characterization, canon inconsistencies and other issues, as long as I am strongly familiar with the fandom in question. I also have experience living in England, and therefore can Britpick to a degree. I am not one to coddle writers. I appreciate good constructive criticism on my own writing, and strive to give it to my authors as well. If you cannot accept criticism, you probably would not want to turn to me. However, if you like honesty and want someone who will work to get the best work possible out of you, then I am available to /
I prefer to use Track Changes in Microsoft Office or OpenOffice to edit stories, both because it is easier and faster than highlighting things, and because it makes the re-editing process much easier for the author. If this is a problem for you, please let me know before you send me your story.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
SPaG, Britpicking, Characterization, Plot Consistency.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a horrible memory, so if I am betaing a novel-length story chapter-by-chapter over a period of months, my ability to spot inconsistencies will become weaker over time.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Slash, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Buffy fandoms, though I've been a bit out of touch with Buffy lately.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Explicit Het Sex and anything that worships Sirius Black. Wincest or any other form of incest, really. Anything that deals with real people (the actors, writers, or any other possible live human being I could actually walk up to and start a conversation with) and not characters in a fandom. Extreme SPaG-as in you never even turned on spell check and don't know what the SHIFT button does.
