|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
(Updated as of 15.11.2017) I've been an author on this site for almost eleven years now and in that time i have come to talk to and know several authors; that to me is an important concept when it comes to beta reading. The more that you come to understand the direction the other person is coming from, the more effective you can be when it comes to beta reading someone's work.
I love reading a good fanfiction, ones with depth and creativity whether it is only a oneshot or has multiple chapters, so one thing i would like to say as an expectation from anyone wishing for me to help them is that you be as elaborate and direct when it comes to your fanfiction. Be honest with what you're looking for and keep me informed of everything that you come up with for it. With that in mind im sure i will be of help in you writing your fanfiction; and i look forward to reading the full result.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
While im not at all much in the terms of writing a story myself; im very accurate in terms of noticing mistakes in grammer and spelling, I easily notice plotholes in writing that can stand out and potentially ruin a story. Also i am compulsively creative and can come up with complex concepts for character development and creation (Those who I work with, can attest that I create a lot of those) and plot devices to improve a story if requested. I am also able to improvise around a concept so long as i am made aware of the author's intent for the story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As i mentioned in my strengths; while im capable of assisting in writing and creating concepts etc, i find it difficult in actually putting my own words into writing when it comes to writing a story myself. This stems from my own concern of unintentionally repeating the same words in a sentence.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really enjoy stories with creative depth. i've noticed this in stories that span many chapters, and im always prepared for a challenge when it comes to such story writing whether its humourous or plain serious. Aside from the details ive detailed below there is hardly a type of story i am not willing to beta read so long as its truly well thought out.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There's hardly a genre im not at all unwilling to beta, however ive never been a fan of yaoi. When it comes to writing i believe you have to be able to relate to the character in some way, and that type of story just doesnt appeal to me. (No offense meant for any of you hardcore yaoi authors/readers out there) however for anime such as Cardcaptor Sakura where there are many scenes of yaoi though short; i am willing to make the exception so long as it is not extreme. Lastly, if there is a concept including something that i am not aware of; this usually comes from cross-overs with one series I am familiar with and one that I am not, i will not be capable of betaring unless i research the latter in detail, this can take a while but of course i am willing to make the exception if you are paitent enough for me to do so.
