|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a 20 year old college student working on a journalism major. I do editing, but I'm also great help when you're developing an idea. I'm an upfront person and once I get to know you, and even before, I can be extremtly blunt at times. I can take a week or two to get back to you but I'm thorough in my editing. When I'm betaing I will typically read through whatever it is I'm working on twice. Once so that I've read the entire thing, and then again to make comments or correct mistakes I see. I try not to make major edits in the document itself, but I will make some fairly long comments on the side if I feel that I have something to say. I try and explain any changes that I do make, or if I'm suggesting a change, I'll explain why and if I can, I'll provide a possible edit. If there's not a lot of comments, it's because I didn't find a lot of problems. If there are a lot of commments...well, you DID ask for my help. Expectations. Well, I would definatly expect anyone who I beta for to listen to me. I'm more than willing to listen to an explanation about why you disagree with me on something, but don't just blow me off. If there is something we disagree on, I would prefer it if the chapter that the disagreement is about isn't posted until we've had a chance to talk and figure things out.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a great muse. At least for the people that I've spoken to. I'm good for bouncing ideas off of and so long as I know where you're going with the story or where you want to go, I can spot plot holes fairly easily. If you're having trouble deciding where you want to head with a story, but have a place to start, I'm the kind of person who will take what you've got and start throwing out ideas about different directions that you can take. I tend to remember a lot of what I read. If I think there's something wrong with a sentance or a part of the story, I'll say so and I'll typically try and provide a way of fixing it or a better way to phrase something. My grammar is good and it's something I appreciate in others.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling. I'm not horrific, and I can DEFINATLY tell if something is majorly misspelled, but I depend on word for spell check for final edits in that regard. Depending on the length, I tend to take a little while before I get a chapter back to the author. But I do take care when going through and betaing.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Artemis Fowl is definatly where my heart is right now. Artemis/Holly more specifically. I'm totally open to looking stories from other catagories on my list, but I've been with AF for the past couple of years and I don't see myself leaving the fandom anytime soon.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Girl/girl pairings. I've got no problem with it, it's just not something that I'm intrested in reading. More specificly in the AF fandom, I will NOT do AM or HT.
