|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi guys, I'm Belle. I'd be really happy to work with you on improving your stories-grammar and spelling were always some of my best subjects, other than english. If you'd like to read some of my stories to first see how I, as a writer, develope my own characters and use proper grammar and spelling, you can either see it on this site or Ramblings and Thoughts-I'm LaBellaBella in both.
Some of the expectations I do, however, expect of you if I were to beta for you, would be the following: A. You need to at least know the basic spellings of words-how am I supposed to know that shadshdfashd means burrito? B. This goes for grammar, too. Please be ready to know that "their" and "they're" can't always be used in the same places. C. Please respect my opinions! If I tell you that something a character says is way OOC *when it's not supposed to be*, like you have Bella saying to Alice, "Ew, bee-yotch, that puke-green sweater looks so like, un-fabu!", please please PLEASE do not erupt like some kind of crazed volcano-person.
Thanks so much, and I really look forward to working with you!!! :)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Like I said, spelling and grammar had always been good subjects of mine. But I would have to say that characterization is my strongest point. I can really help on that and can tell if a person is even slightly out of character. Or, I can even help you invent or detail a new character to the story. Whatever your heart desires...:P
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Hm...I have no weaknesses. I am perfect in every way!
No, I am totally just kidding. My biggest weakness would probably be transition developement-meaning that, when you would like to go from the beginning of school to 11:00 at night, it might take a while for me to figure out a fantastic way to do it. So if you're JUST wanting transitional help, perhaps (if you don't want someone who will have to think for a bit) you won't want me to help you.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
The stories that I would really PREFER would be the ones I have read. Fortunately for you guys, that would be many on the site. My favorites here would probably be: Twilight, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Giver, All-American Girl, The Golden Compass, Rent, Wicked, Les Miserables, and a whole lot of other things. I'd prefer books, but if I just listed it, then it's perfectly fine.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not, NOT I TELL YOU, beta-read Naruto, any other type of anime/manga you may want of me, or...I'm sorry to those many who will want this...Harry Potter. I apologize for that may be an "inconvenience" to some of you.
