Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I beta-read, I try to do it in the way that I want my own things to be judged. I will go through the document with a fine comb and question every sentence, every wording, asking if there was a way in which it could be optimised, while at the same time making sure to distinguish between what I would have written and what the original author wants to say, so that my own corrections do not change the individual writing br /br /

I will always give constructive criticism. If I see something that needs altering in any way, I will always suggest ways in which it could be /br /

My expectations are not overbearing - the document has already been spell-checked. Constantly correcting grammar disturbs the flow of the narrative. Also - and this goes without saying - it should be entertaining in some way or other.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to optimise the word choice in sentences, and will always strive to make the vocabulary utilised more varied. I am also adept at spotting inconsistencies - either conflicting parts of the narrative itself, or inconsistencies with reality, especially where history is concerned. Any story which has a strong basis in history is of particular interest of me, and I will pay special attention to those /br /

I am also bilingual, able to write both in English and German at an academic level.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not good at correcting punctuation, which can certainly been seen in my own stories.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer Prose over Poetry, and within that; Fantasy, of the High and the Low kind, as well as Historical- and Science-Fiction - and those sub-genres that can be found in between, such as Gaslamp Fantasy, Steampunk and Dieselpunk.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Neither Poetry, nor Romance are my fortebr /br /

I also do not like to ready Horror, or anything else that is excessively, gratuitously violent and bloody. I do not mind blood and guts and gore within the context of war, but nowhere else.
