Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I READ quality fictions where the authors are admitting that they aren't perfect, where they want the help and discussion. If you write like a kindergartner I won't read your stuff - it's pointless for beta readers to fix EVERYTHING in stories and/or write your whole story for you. I DO NOT read slash stories, threesomes, or hard abuse stories.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've been known to be nicknamed by who I beta and other friends as the "character expert", as I somehow have that psychological or behavioral or SOMETHING that brings out the best characterizations to match the 'original' character traits in books or movies. I guess it comes with having a parent who is a behavior analyst. I also excel in copy editing, spelling, and can help re-write if needed.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is sometimes giving too much or too little. It's all in what you ask of me - if you want lots of suggestions and me tearing through, I will. If you want little, just let me know...the beta reading is for the writers benefit...I'll always beta as many times as you want. I have copy-read for both newspapers (my high school, college newspapers; was a writer for a city newspaper for awhile and wrote in college) and fiction stories.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My fandoms are very eclectic, so just ask. As for pairings and what I am reading at the moment - look in my community, or just ask as a lot of tv shows/books etc I put in my preferences aren't in the community yet (sometimes I forget to add stories right away).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't read rape (unless it's done in a after-effects, I won't read the happening, - if it's done in a good light I'll try it but can't promise anything, or anything related to child endangerment/molestation/etc I won't read. I don't like "seeing" murders or anything like that, but what that person goes through afterwards is fine. I have a lot of psychology work and history behind me so I know what the person goes through.
