Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a new beta-reader, but I would like to be of service to anybody who would request it. I believe that I could prove useful when reading through a story so that I can improve it if necessary. I only ask that you participate and take into consideration any recommendations I have. Of course, it is ultimately up to the writer whether or not to implement any changes, but it does feel nice to be appreciated.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I would like to think that I am able to catch many errors in syntax that writers tend to let slip when they write for long stretches of time. It's understandable that people make mistakes when they are excited to write and have a great idea to put down, and therefore they miss certain things that the readers do not. Personally, I've been told that I also am quite good at being both thorough and yet gentle when making recommendations or criticizing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Occasionally I will admit that things pass me by on the first read through. I've had times when I re-read something and realize that something just doesn't make any sense, or that there were a few grammatical errors that I skimmed over. Of course, I try to alleviate this by doing multiple readings of something so that I can get a good grasp for the work.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I personally enjoy minor A/U stories, where things are changed but the "rules" of the original work are kept the same. Characters that change a good deal also are enjoyable to read as they progress through the story.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Extremely A/U stories where the universe has been completely changed. No offense to those stories and their authors, but these stories that deviate heavily from the source material are simply not my cup of tea.
