Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I used to beta-read here before the system was well-put-together as it is now. I'm very exacting about the basics of grammar and spelling, if that means much, but I try not to let that detract from the actual content and story of what I'm reading. I've taken Fiction classes, and am very used to picking up on individual styles pretty quickly.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I've already said, spelling/grammar are my main strengths. However, in the areas in which I know a lot, I consider myself strong on actual content (details of myth, clothing, fashions, trends, for example), and can also aid in research as and when required.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I would say one of my weaknesses is that I do have a tendency to change around whole sentences willy-nilly when I don't like the flow, although it's something I try to keep tamed.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Given that I specialize in Regency-related and mythological fiction, obviously if these are areas a beta-reader is required for I would be more than happy to step up to the plate.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not overly interested in beta-ing horror work, but I imagine that would be my only qualm. That's not to say I wouldn't look a piece over if it was well-written, and help if it was, but it's not something that particularly catches my fancy. Also, poetry is REALLY not my strong suit, but what poet wants a beta reader anyway?
