|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, my name is Jasmine. I am going to be a 9th grade student in High School in September of 2008. I am in advanced English and my teachers frequently complement my writing skills. I have gotten pretty good at grammar because my 8th grade teacher loved to do grammar. I learned a lot from her and I hope that my writings show it. :) I don’t say something is good when in reality it is bad, but I am not harsh either. I will try to give you little ways that I believe you can story can be a little better and if you don’t agree that is fine with me.
If you have any questions about my profile or about me feel free to PM me.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at fixing spelling and grammar mistakes. I have Microsoft Office Word 2007 and if I miss anything it usually corrects it. If I believe that what I originally wrote is right and the correction that Microsoft said was wrong, I will go with my own judgment and/or research it on Google.
Also, I have my own laptop so I can usually go on at any time to beta a story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a pretty hectic life, especially in the summer. I usually travel a lot and this summer (summer of 2008) I am going to Vegas, Atlanta (twice), Hawaii, The Grand Canyon, and San Francisco so I might not be able to respond automatically. Even after the summer I am going to be really busy because I am starting high school and I need to concentrate on my studies. I am in all advanced classes, I take band, and I have a lot of extracurricular activities. I will try to beta your story as quickly as possible but, I might take a couple of days. The latest I will take is a week.
I am also new at being a beta. I have never done it before, so it might take me a couple of days to get the hang of things, but I grasp things pretty quickly. :)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I can’t really beta someone who switches tenses a lot. For example, if the story is continuously being switched from past tense to present tense. It confuses and annoys me. Please do not ask me to beta your story if your writing style is like that. Also, I would rather beta something that is past tense then something that is in the present tense. It just makes more sense to me.
I prefer romance/comedies and stories where Edward (from Twilight) is the school player. I also like stories where Emmett and Bella (from Twilight) are siblings. I also LOVE Quil and Claire stories. I like a bunch of other plots too, you can check out my favorite stories list to see some of the other plots I like.
I prefer stories (in Blood and Chocolate) where Vivian and Gabriel are starting their new life, or cut outs from Blood and Chocolate in Gabriel’s point of view.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not do any story in which Bella or any of the Cullen’s are killed (from Twilight). That just makes me depressed. It is okay if Charlie or Renee dies as long as it is in the beginning or as long as you don’t draw the killing scene out to much.
I do not like stories where the “bad guys” are the main characters, such as Victoria (from Twilight).
I will not beta any Blood and Chocolate stories where Aiden plays a big role in it or when he is a “werewolf.”
Non canon couples, there are very few that I will beta, unless they are just oneshots. I will beta most lemons that are uncanon. As long as it is not a full out story about that one couple (such as BellaxJasper.)
I will not beta most JacobxBella stories or ones where Jacob imprints.
