Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I beta, I am looking for the basics in grammar, punctuation, consistency with POV and spelling. I am also looking for continuity between chapters and characters within your story. I also think it is important to look for believable dialogue and getting rid of anything in "txt msg" format unless someone is reading a text in the story. I guess that's pretty much it. I try to look for everything and anything. I'm not perfect and am bound to miss something.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty strong when it comes to dialogue, as well as keeping it from being nothing but he said/she said attributes to the dialogue. For the most part, I'm pretty good at giving the characters movement and different tones of voice instead of just a bunch of talking heads.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a weak speller. That's why I am a big fan of the spell check on Word. I'm also not so good with the writing of smut. If you have written smut in your story, I can beta, but don't ask me to write it or improve it for you. Also, I miss a lot of the basics in grammar within my own writing even though I'm better at finding it in others work. It's a curse I am forced to live with.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars, That 70s Show, and iZombie because those are the categories that I am most familiar with as far as the canon of those shows are concerned.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta stories that are Buffy/Angel or other and Spike/Dru or other, Veronica/Duncan or other and Logan/Lilly or other, Jackie/Kelso or other and Hyde/other. If your story only contains these couples for a portion of the story and then moves to Buffy/Spike, Veronica/Logan, and Jackie/Hyde then I will gladly give it a look. I'm very devoted to my couples.
