|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm only beginning this beta-reading journey, but I would love to help out some fellow ficcers. I'm currently finishing my MA in Children's Lit, so I'm a bit on the busy side. If you are looking for someone to hit your work hard and fast, I'm probably not your gal. But if you want me to seriously devote my time to it and don't mind waiting (not too long, of course) then I'm the girl for you.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm quite decent and grammar and spelling, particularly at catching tense changes and those pesky homophones and dangling modifiers (from experience). I also tend to look at flow, or cliches, if that matters.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As I mentioned before, I'm not the fastest at giving feedback because I have other obligations. I tend to be a bit hard on cliches, although I love them (and use them myself). I'm a fan of parentheticals, so I write and encourage others to write that way.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer fandoms that I've participated/engaged in at least to a degree so that I can focus on the characterization (even AU) along with the grammar and writing style.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm completely incapable of beta-ing smut. I just have no experience.
