Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! This is my first time beta reading, but I think I'll be pretty good at it. I like to beta read other works like I beta read my own: with the mindset that there is room for improvement. I hope to be an English teacher in the future, and I'm in college studying to become one. So if you really need help with grammar, I'm your gal.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a real stickler for grammatical correctness. But I also like to help people improve their writing overall. That could mean helping to identify the "Mary-Sue"s and the gaping plot holes. Or it could mean just helping create a better flow of information in the story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to be really honest. So if you can't handle the complete truth, don't ask me to beta read. I'm my own worst critic, and I judge my own work ten times as harshly as other people do. I would be gentler on your work because I know how it feels when someone trolls your story. It's like they are bullying your child and it hurts. I'll be honest but not harsh. I feel the purpose of beta reading to improve and honest critiques are the best way to improving.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer Harry Potter, preferably stories about the Marauders and even Draco Malfoy. I'm okay with stories about Twilight. The only anime I really know well is Full Metal Alchemist, and I know a little bit about InuYasha, and even less about Yu Yu Hakasho (sorry if I spelled that wrong). I know some Gossip Girl, but I really only watched the show on TV, and even that was only the early stuff (like first two or three seasons). But I'm willing to try anything once, and I'll let you know if I've never heard of whatever you are writing about.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will NOT read weird Harry Potter pairs (SnapexHermione, DracoxHermione, just stuff that could never truly happen. I can only suspend my disbelief so far). That pretty much goes for anything. If you know that you have a strange, extremely unlikely pairing of any two characters in any kind of category, please move on to another beta reader. Like I said, I can only suspend my disbelief so far.
