Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello there!

I was never entirely sure what a Beta Reader is, until I actually decided to read the description (duh). And then it seemed to me that yeah, I could do that =)

I guess I should let you know my experience, so here goes:

Fan Fiction wise, I started writing back in 2007, when I really got into Naruto and discovered all the fictions floating around the 'net. I've written three major fan fictions, which are part of a series. These were posted on another site, whilst I totally forgot about my account on here *sweat drop* whoops, you got me there!

General writing wise, I've written from a really young age, and I've always loved it. I'm a published poet (yeesh, only one poem, and it embarasses me a little), and I study Creative Writing at university. I'm in my second year, and I get good marks for my stuff! *proud*

I am into my grammar and correct spelling, but I'm always friendly about it =)

I do live in the UK, so I use the English spellings for words like 'favourite', 'honour', etc. But I'll keep in mind that you guys in the US spell them differently *cough*weirdly*cough* =P

My fan fictions on this site are all Naruto based, and that's the anime I know most about. I've put down Death Note and Twilight as preferences, mostly because they're my other two obsessions, and I know a silly amount about them.

I'm a self-confessed otaku, and I like to think I'm pretty 'down with the lingo' a lot of people like to slip into their stories, eg. 'arigato', honorofics and other romanji Japanese.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Like I mentioned above, grammar and spelling... They're big ones for me.
As well as that, I'm pretty good at noticing plot holes. I'll try my best to help you with the basic flow of stories too, if you need any help.
I'm good at advice =)
I'm also pretty good with written speech, and I know a lot of people struggle with it. I had a whole lesson devoted to it on my course, about how to make it flow naturally.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Fight scenes are a little iffy with me, I have to admit =S But I will try my absolute best .
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't mind anything sexual, it doesn't offend or embarrass me at all. After all, I've done it myself =| I don't mind violence either, so I'm down with all that kind of stuff. Although I'm not particularly violent myself... =| Lemons, Limes, slash, rape, incest, yaoi... I think I could handle all these things. Yuri, not so much, I've never read a fan fiction involving yuri, and wouldn't know where to start =S Any drug references are fine by me too. There's not much you could write in a story that would scare me off.. That's not a challenge though!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There's not much I won't betaread... oh, I guess apart from yuri, as I mentioned before.
