Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a great speller and have a fairly large vocabulary. I do well with helping a writer find his plot when the bunny grabs the story and jumps down a plot hole. I'm usually pretty good about getting things read and done within a reasonable amount of time. Though honestly I work better with a deadline. So if you want me to beta for you then let me know when you want it done and I will try my best to get it done in that time. If I am unable to do so then I will contact you and let you know when I will be able to get it back to you. Please when you PM me be courteous, I will ignore any requests that seem rude. Also, while your writing on here is not for an English assignment, please use proper spelling and grammar. If I can not decipher your request for a beta, I will ignore it. I do not do this to be rude, but I have two children and I can not spend hours on end attempting to decipher a story.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am fairly good at fixing plot holes, as well as being a soundboard for bouncing ideas off of. I pride myself on spelling and grammar, in fact, it is a pet peeve of mine. I am not saying that I am perfect in my spelling and grammar, but I am saying that I have a pretty good handle on them.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to try to push where I think the story should go, though I am getting better at this. It's just a warning.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Having two small children makes me want to beta short pieces. But I will beta longer pieces as long as you have the understanding that I will need more time to do those. Genre wise I prefer supernatural, fantasy, and sci-fi. But if it catches my eye I will read it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not much into romance, historical, western, or any form of non fiction. I will not beta anything in chat speak or something that the writer has obviously not used their spell check or grammar check on. Please use those, they are a part of word processors for a reason. With such "stories" that have come out like Twilight, I cannot and will not do any form of sappy supernatural love story.
