Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
In all, I am a perfectionist. Though, I try my best to fix mistakes, I also make them, but I can promise you that the beta work that I do is to the best of my ability. I start usually by reading it through without correcting anything, and with the permission of the original writer, I add in what I think should be fixed or added to the story or poem. Then, I save my corrections as a separate document and send it to the original writer. If the original writer finds it acceptable then I will continue to revise and correct any grammar mistakes. Then I start from the bottom and read the story backwards to catch any mistakes. However, if the original writer finds that they don't find my version acceptable, I can go through their original version and just correct the grammar, spelling, etc. Please remember that I will never change the whole concept of the story, the characters, or the plot of the story. If allowed, I will only replace some of the "boring" words with more "interesting" words. For example: "She bowed her head in a silent thank you." I could change it to, "She lowered her head with a gracious thank you."
My only expectations of the writers that I help are that they are respectful of both themselves and of me. In other words, don't bash my work, and don't send me utter crap.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at correcting grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I also excel at describing appearances and emotion.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is past and future tense mix up. For example, "Her eyes were glistening. That was the best day of her life."
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta anything as long as it's understandable and has somewhat of a plot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't stand immaturity. Don't send me anything that sounds like "David bounced up in down with hypernessnessnessness and then vroomed around the room at the speed of light."
