Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! I'm AlmightySempai, a college student with nonetheless strong English skills, and the desire to make some new writing friends. I believe in treating others how you would have them treat you, and that constructive criticism is the author's best friend. I am ready to help with spelling, grammar, sentence structure, readability and plot continuity, though I am certainly up for other types of beta requests. Any suggestions I make to the author of a story regarding these things will be done in a respectful manner, with the knowledge that I am here to help, not hinder the writing process.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I received a perfect score on the English section of the ACT college entrance achievement test. As such, I believe my spelling and grammar skills are near impeccable. I would be glad to help with correcting grammatical and spelling errors, and reviewing problems usage and sentence structure. When I beta a document with a large number of these errors, rather than just correcting them, I will try to help you prevent them as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not a great judge of character, and sometimes it is difficult for me to judge when someone is acting out of character, especially if I'm not incredibly familiar with the original work. Sometimes plot continuity details escape me. However, I will try my hardest to be of help in those areas as well. I am much better at beta reading others' work that my own.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am comfortable with most anime, books, games, genres, etc. I am a fan of both heterosexual and slash pairings, and don't mind reading either of those. Explicit sex, violence or drug use, no problem! I'd prefer to beta for fandoms that I'm familiar with, but will beta even if I'm not. If you're worried I'm not familiar enough with it to beta, just ask! :)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not much. The only fandoms I would rather not beta read are Naruto, Inu Yasha or... Nope, just those. Also, I'd prefer not to beta for stories that are centered around angst, because those are depressing, and parody, because I'm used to seeing lower quality work submitted under that category.
