My English skills were at a college level in my sophomore year of high school. To this day, spelling and grammar are my biggest pet peeves. Sometimes, when I read stories on this site, the grammar is so atrocious that I have to stop reading it. I get to the point where I'm fixing the mistakes in my head so much that I can't even keep track of the story.
My only expectations of anyone is patience and a polite attitude. A fair warning: Don't be rude to me or I will drop your story like a hot potato.
If you wish for me to BETA for you, you MUST send me a pm or e-mail that includes:
1. What you are writing off of (Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha, Inheritance Cycle, Twilight, etc.)
2. The genre. (drama, comedy, romance, etc.)
3. A short description of your OC, if you have one, including personality. And,
4. A synopsis of your main plot. Please keep this short and to the point. A paragraph or two at the most.
The reason I ask for these things is so that, if I need to, I can edit your story and still make it sound like it's coming from you. You are, of course, welcome to change anything that you don't like. I'm here to edit, not write your story for you.
Also, if you e-mail me, I will need to know your pen name if I am to BETA for you so that I know where to send the completed documents to. :D
