Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been writing fan fiction since about 2003, even before I knew that fanfiction was a "thing". The first story I wrote was a "Days of our Lives" story (wrote it on my lunch break at work and in between calls during work!); it came from a conversation that I had with a group on a message board. We were venting about the lack of storylines for our favorite characters. Someone mentioned a scenario and I decided to go with it. I first wrote it in play form,but later changed it story form. I posted it on the DOOL message board, not knowing that existed. People seemed to like my story and that encouraged me to write more. Later I wrote a few "One Life to Live" stories (again b/c I wasn't happy with the way the current storyline was going) and I even wrote a "Monk" story which I posted on the shows corresponding boards. Someone suggested that I post my Monk story on and when I did, I loved the feedback and what began as casual story writing (one story every year or so) suddenly snowballed when I started writing Frasier stories back in 2010. It started with a Frasier/Seinfeld crossover and then a friend of mine was constantly encouraging me to write sequels to my stories. Soon I was writing multiple stories at once and to this day I still have a lot that are in progress, but I'm working on them! My husband even got into the act, coming up with crazy crossover ideas and helping me with details of certain stories! I have now written over 700 stories, which is still hard to believe!br /

As for my beta-reading skills, I enjoy reading other people's work and although I'm a person who likes to take a story and make it my own, I refrain from "rewriting" it. I like helping people and giving what I hope is constructive criticism. I recently started highlighting the stuff that I find that needs to be changed which is something I've never done before but after a few people suggested it, I find that it works great and I appreciate having the new skill.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have been beta-reading on the site since 2014 and I have found that I absolutely love it. I was honored to be chosen by as a beta reader and I feel that my attention to detail is helpful in finding any grammatical errors or typos. I have been beta-reading for people a lot since the pandemic (and my unfortunate unemployment) began and it's nice to be able to have so much time to do it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I've beta-d for quite a few people so far and all of the stories have been very different which I really enjoy. I try to be as thorough as possible when giving feedback and I try not to re-write what the person has already written but just look for typos and things of that nature. So I will work as hard as possible to finish your story quickly. Another weakness would be my availability. I am a very busy person but I love this site and want to contribute more than just stories. So please don't get discouraged if you find that I am not available to help you. If the situation is really dire and you really want my services, please send me a personal message. At the present I have a lot of free time so I shoudl be able to get stories beta'd rather quickly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Please note that the fandoms listed below are the ones I would prefer to beta-read, but of course I will consider any fandom as long as it's rating is K-T. Thanks for your understanding. The M rated stories can make me a bit uncomfortable, even though I've written several M rated stories of my own.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No M rated stories or stories that aren't in English, unless you can translate them. Thank you.
