Author has written 3 stories | Harry Potter.
β : golden phoenix ash is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As you probably know, my pen name is golden phoenix ash. My real name is Karina and I'm 17. I live in the Philippines, but my english is pretty good. I am currently a college freshman, so I am knowledgeable in basic english grammar and spelling. I have proofread some of my classmates' writing before, so I'm not exactly a beginner in proofreading and editing.
If you want me to be your beta reader, I expect that you have already ran your work through spellcheck and grammar check. That is because I find it annoying if the work I am proofreading is full of spelling and grammatical mistakes. A few mistakes hear and there is ok, but it's irritating if there's a mistake in every other sentence.
I also expect that your work's format is not going to be a strain to read (ex. wall of words). My eyesight is very poor so I don't like to read stories with the formatting that is hard on the eyes.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My Strengths include detecting spelling and grammar mistakes easily, sentence structures, rewording badly written phrases/sentences (if I get what you're trying to say). I will not go against the writer's idea for their stories, but I may sometimes suggest some ideas to the writer.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are plot ideas, characterization, and sometimes flow and organization. Also, it might sometimes take weeks for me to get back at you if I'm very busy.
I am not good at comedy/parodies, western and poetry. Therefore, it would probably be best that you don't make me your beta reader if your stories are comedy/parodies, western, or poetry. If you're story is of some other genre but has some comedy involved I might be able to help you.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything not mentioned below is welcome. If you want me to be your beta reader, you may send me a PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (if you email me, please entitle it "betareader request". There's a chance I might confuse it as junk mail otherwise).
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I absolutely will not take on any type of slash, incest,or hardcore lemon stories. I do not like lemon in stories (especially if it is not within the bounds of marriage), but I can tolerate it if it really has to be there and it is not explicit or graphic. I have never liked horror stories. I also don't like it if the story contains rape and murder, but I will tolerate if unavoidable.
