Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I already beta for one author on here, as well as writing my own stuff, and usually when I do so I'm a very fast reader and check my email constantly, so anything I beta will usually be back within a day or two of my receiving it. At heart I'm a perfectionist and I always write and rewrite my own work until I feel happiest with it, so that will easily be transferred to beta-reading. I know how frustrating writers block can be, believe me, and so I'm happy to help anyone who feels a bit lost with their story or just wants a bit of feedback, as long as I know what's required of me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I admit it. I am a perfectionist and so my strengths are grammar, spelling and general structure. I'm good at creating images, metaphors and similes and typically I tend to write one-shots from different character's perspective, generally those who don't appear largely. I know Harry Potter very well, so I can spot things that are out of character or plotlines that don't really work, and I can suggest other ideas that might work better. I read and write well and anything I am sent will generally be returned within a matter of a few days.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Obviously I am not perfect, and sometimes I do get bogged down with outside things, meaning that occasionally feedback or updates can take some time due to other duties. I am prone to occasional bouts of writers block, as are most people, although I tend to overcome this quickly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter is my strength as I know that universe best but I can beta anything else as far as grammar and structure is concerned. I am also happy to beta stories from His Dark Materials, Twilight, and The Wind on Fire, to check canonicity etc as well as grammar and spelling. My preferred kind of story is romance, humour or tragedy as I find them more interesting both to read and to write.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not interested in beta-reading slash of any kind if it is slash for the sake of it - if a story has been written and the writer wants help making it credible rather than just some silly sadomasochistic angsty piece, then I'm happy to help. Otherwise, no thank you.
