Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a pretty flexible beta, whatever way you prefer the document to look like when you get it back works for me. I've just made changes, I've highlighted the sections that I changed so the author could look at it and see if they wanted to keep the changes or not, etc. Whatever you need will likely work for me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strength in beta-reading is grammer. Most of what I correct is errors in this, as well as identifying missing details or errors in judgement. I also tend to remind people to add detail to their story, though I'm not always the best at telling you how to go about doing this, as I'm working on this in my own stories. Just a warning, however, that I can be very picky and I'm not afraid to re-write an entire paragraph (if it fits in wtih the beta style I'm using. If it doesn't, I'll make sure you know I think it needs changed). However, I will do my best to not be rude, and if you feel I am, feel free to let me know and I'll be more carefull with my words. I am a musician (flute), so if you need help in that subject I'm more than willing to help.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses in beta-reading and writing, as mentioned before, is adding detail. I can tell when it's missing, but I find it difficult to add it and still allow the story to flow. I'm also not good at planning every detail of my stories ahead of times; often I know the beginning and the end, and allow the middle to write itself chapter by chapter. Another weakness of mine is finding time and energy to sit down and write or beta, which is why I may need reminders to get it done, but I will do my best to sit down and do it at my first available moment. One of the reasons I decided to open my availablity to beta is to try and help my procrastination issue.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories that have adventure and romance, though if the pairing is an unusual one, I'd like a logical explanation as to how the couple came about. If it makes no sense, I'm likely to get frustrated, and I will do a poor job at beta'ing your story.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer to have stories that do not have extremelly detailed abuse, torture, or rape, as I find them incredible difficult to read. However, I'm willing to read anything else, though I typically read more yaoi/slash than heterossexual or yuri/femslash stories. However, I will be willing to beta them for you if you have decided that you want me to beta your stories for you.
