|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey, everyone! I've decided to be a beta reader...I've written about...15 or so stories, and I love when people help me, so I'm willing to do the same for them! Just for the record, I'm not some outstanding grammar person, but I do know my basic skills, and I'm good at spelling too! If you've got a story for me to beta, just let me know. Give me a PM, or however you want!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Well, I excel at stuff I know, I suppose. If you give me a fandom that I'm not familiar with, I'll give it my best shot, but Bleach, Naruto, Kingdom Hearts, Fruits Basket, Harry Potter, High School Muscial, etc. are my main areas of strength.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Really in-depth grammar. Grammar, frankly, bores me to tears. I know basic skills (your or you're, etc.)but I'm not a grammar expert...also, I'm not the best with factual stuff (when someone was born, when they did this, when they did that, etc.) although I'm willing to look it up. Okay, one other problem with my beta-ing: really long stories make me lose interest and I have to take them in tiny chunks...if you want me to beta a story that you've planned out as a long story, please ask me when you start the story. (This weakness does not apply to stories with a large collection of short drabbles)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer things I'm familiar with: Bleach, Naruto, Kare Kano, Fruits Basket, Avatar, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, Xenosaga, Harry Potter, High School Musical, Sweeney Todd, and Tin Man. I'm okay with yaoi/yuri/incest, whatever...no smut...
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't do smut...I can read it, but I can't write it and therefore will not be able to proofread your smutty stories...and stories that have the same carbon copy plot as everyone else's stories...also, really horrible Mary Sue or OC stories annoy me...I prefer you use the characters given...other than that, I'm flexible.
