|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Songsiren. If I were to become your beta-reader I would critique your grammar and spelling a lot, which means my general 'pickiness' would have to not get on your nerves. Also, I look at character's personalities attentively, even if they are original characters. Not only that, but as the writer of the story, I would expect updates at least once every three weeks, just to keep me from forgetting the story. I think I am pretty leinient in this, but if you are going on vacation or there is some odd circumstance I would like it if you told me as soon as was convienient.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are basically in the words. I like word description and I am good at getting and idea across; I am also good at untangling others' words. If you were to look at some of my stories, you might notice that the grammar is pretty bad and there are a lot of typos, epecially in the older works. I generally like it this way, because I can see how far I've come and how far I've go to go. These stories are NOT my best work, and I assure you just because my grammar and spelling are bad, I still am pretty good at revising someone elses's work.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are in my obssesive and taking over personality. If I see something in your story I think is wrong, I'll tell you and keep telling you if you don't acknowledge what I am trying to show you. Also, if I see something with you work that I think that I can make better, I will rewrite your work, but I will NEVER rewrite more than a sentence at a time. I am really trying to work on this but don't be offended if I do it to you.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, I would prefer stories that are romance-y. I've just recently gotten into this genre, and I like it. Maybe if you believe your story has deep emotional meaning, then I will take it. Also, this may be a drawback to some, but I will only do stories from these... genre/storytypes:
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Castle in the Sky
Nausicca of the Valley of the Wind
Howl's Moving Castle
Blood and Chocolate
Edgar Allen Poe
Lord of the Rings
Cartoons (These have to be pretty d*mn good):
Any X over of any formentioned book/movie/anime
Well, that's it.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Okay, more bummers. I am fourteen, and I have some moral standards (and a mom who checks my computer) so no M rated stuff unless it is just for cursing or kissing. Just no full-out lemons, okay? And if you feel you absolutely must, give me some warning beforehands. Sorry for being a pain. One more thing, I don't want any slash. I have NOTHING against those who are gay or like gay readings, I just am only just getting into romance-y stuff, and I want to stay to standard stuff before I move into deeper feeling-y stuff. Okay, sorry for all the bummers, but if you want, I'll be a beta for you!
NO slash, not against gays, but
