Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Okay. I’m a good speller, and even if I don’t know how the word is spelled I’m not lazy enough not to open a book and find out how it is spelt. I’m a stickler for grammar and punctuation, and I know the difference between you’re and your. I also know that defiantly is not a substitute for definitely, and other common mistakes. I’m thorough and fast, unlike my updates, so worry not. I’m more of a reader/corrector than a writer. I like beta-ing people’s stories, and I take great pride in helping a person improve their story. Along with basic correcting of grammar, spelling, etc, I would like to discuss the overall structures and whatnot- things that worked and things that could use some work.

Let’s see… Expectations:

-That the author will take everything I say into consideration and not blow it off, otherwise what’s the point?

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I wrote before, I’m good at spelling. I’m also good at recognizing spelling mistakes even if I don’t know the proper way to correct it, and will take great pains to make sure I do. I’m great with knowing the difference of contractions and their counterparts e.g. it’s, its. My other strengths also include knowing the correct usage of homonyms.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Could definitely build up my knowledge on correcting tenses. I might not be able to pick up all the mistakes right away.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Hrmm… Not really. Gangs, fights, love, heart break… For HP I love the whole AU/Time travel plots, but the others are generic. Oh, except for Naruto; I’d prefer it if he wasn’t an idiot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi/Slash/Shounen-ai/Guy-on-guy; you get the picture. And “not my cup of tea” x10 would be those fics that have characters speaking in caps half the time and drugged on exclaimation and question marks.
