Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I haven't done this before but I can definitly focus of spelling and punctuation for anyone that feels like they're something they miss when proofing. I'm also good for fixing sentences that feel like the word order is not quite right. I have been told I can be too much of a critic to the extent that someone told the teacher in charge of our school paper that "Becky is ruthless; we know she's going to be doing some kind of critical writing in the future. I wouldn't want her in my restaurant."
I don't have any "expectations" of anyone that wishes to acquire my services.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at spotting things that don't work in story lines and pointing out when someone is rambling with their plot. For example when it feels like they are just dragging the story out. I can be a little human thesaurus when needed and I can bluntly or kindly fix spelling and gramma etc.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have started to confuse characters from actual books and films with their character traits in fanfiction. Because of this I may sometimes let random OOC actions slip by.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Fanfictions from books and films etc. that I have read or seen are preffered.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I have grown a fond hatred for songfics. So probably not those depending on how desperate the person is for a beta.
