|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Ruth. I've always recieved good grades in English Language and Literature, and I would love someday to become an Editor, or at least an Editorial Assistant (Or even a proofreader). I have the bad habit of reading a book, then re-reading it looking for mistakes! I suppose my beta-reading style would be:
-Skim-reading and correcting any obvious mistakes (eg spelling or typos)
-Thorough-reading and finding all the harder mistakes (e.g grammer or language)
-Re-reading until confident all mistakes have been noted and corrected
-Scanning in corrected fic OR re-write it (whichever is easiest for the author)
-Double-checking my own corrections
-Returning to Author (Plus discussion - communication is key)
-Process repeated if neccessary
Expectations: I do expect any author to be able to have a grasp of the english language. I refuse to beta any work which uses Text language or computer slang (eg. l8r, lol, or no use of capital letters/punctuation.), unless for deliberate effect.
NOTE: I have noticed there are a lot of authors on fanfiction whose first language isn't english, yet still produce excellent work. I also offer my services to those people who are having issues with their sentance flow/or making sense (I DO NOT OFFER A TRANSLATION SERVICE)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good speller, and being creative and a strong imagination. Giving story/writing advice I certainly excel at. I also extremely enjoy improving sentence structure (It's kinda a pet peeve of mine.)
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to make a lot of typos, so work may have a short delay to be returned while I am double checking my own corrections (I am utterly competant, however).
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Genre-wise, I do not mind what sort of story I am sent (Horror, Romance, etc etc) Though I would prefer it if I knew the subject you were writing about (I will inform you if I do or do not.) I only advise this because I will then be able to offer advice on characters or plotlines since I am familiar with the subject matter, and help with accuracy etc. I also prefer stories with some form of pairing. My favourite fandoms are Kingdom Hearts, the FFVII FRANCHISE, Kuroshitsuji, Axis Powers Hetalia, Loveless, Fruits Basket, Tsubasa, Death Note, Naruto, etc
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not picky. Will take anything, but I'm not particularly interested if it has no pairings. KH and Hetalia yaoi is my preference.
