|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm really rather new to this, but I've edited my friends' assorted works before. I enjoy reading and helping polish up a good story, but I have to make it clear that chat speak and total disregard for grammar and spelling really isn't something I can stomach in the long term. I'll do my best to do what I can to help you if you choose to ask for my assistance, but there's only so much I can do between school and work.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've been told that I have a good grasp on how to make a story 'flow', as well as a decent eye when it comes to grammatical errors. My diction is a major strength as well, and I can supply excellent substitute phrases for flat, uninteresting lines.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't have a huge surplus of time, and my responses may be sluggish depending on my school situation. If you notice anything I need to work on, please let me know!
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like strong female characters, so stories focusing on them and their growth are always something I enjoy.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't really want to beta angst-ridden stories. Gratuitous abuse, rape, and self-injury aren't things I'm interested in reading. br /
Mary-Sues are out, period. Even Main Female OCs can be iffy, given the tendency towards the former, and I would have to read them over first. That sort of character leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Same with /
Anything else is probably okay; if for some reason I am uncomfortable with the content or themes of your work, I will make sure to tell you early on so that you can find a more suitable Beta.
