Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm pretty easy going, if you select me as your beta reader then I'll do everything in my power to be of use to you, without saying yes to your every request. I'll read your chapters at least 4 times before replying, and will thoroughly check grammar and spelling before everything else. I will be in constant contact to ensure that I have not interpreted things in the wrong manner and end up doing major league edits that completely alter your story and change what you were trying to do. My expectations are simple: 1) Don't send me things under the pressure of wanting an update. Think through each part thoroughly before writing and finishing. I'll help, but at the end of the day, it's your story and we want to show what you can do and not what I can do. 2) Don't be afraid to try new things, unleash your imagination as the site says, be as wild and creative as you want! 3) Don't get offended if I criticise anything, it's constructive criticism and not me trying to reject your ideas. At the end of the day, you are the writer and I would be excited to be able to help anyone and be absolutely honoured to be chosen to beta read for anyone.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm really anal about grammar and spelling. Though sometimes I get carried away with my own writing and make a load of mistakes, which I then get annoyed at when I re-read my writing later! However, I'm getting better at noticing these errors, I swear! I'm addicted to this site, so I've read quite a few stories. It'll help when reading for any similarities that may get noticed by others and I'll never slay anyone for their writing. Constructive criticism is always needed, but you should never offend anyone whilst doing it! I've watched quite a few movies/dramas/animes, so I think I'd be quite helpful, but I am always willing to do thorough research on anything I might not know in order to help you and to be of use to you. I'll give honest opinions and reply a.s.a.p, and will always ask about parts I'm not sure about without assuming or misinterpreting.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not perfect, but I'll try my best to help you. My biggest weakness is that I'm impatient. Even though logically, I know it takes time for masterpieces to be created, I still check religiously for updates whenever I can.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll read anything and do anything! Well maybe not so much the latter, but I appreciate all writers and their creations.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not much I don't go for. I may cringe at times, but will push forward and read through anything. It would help if you gave me a heads up of what to expect though, like a brief summary, but no pressure ]
