|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am very critical on grammer and simple misspellings. Since I am not the best speller in the world, I expect one to not be able to spell a larger word good but also expect you to use your spell checker if you have one. I hate the small mistakes and prefer to know if you have carefully read over the document before sending it to me.
I like to read well written works that are not choppy and include a lot of detail. Detail is key to me in any story. If the story doesn't have a lot of detail, I am most likely going to suggest you add more. I prefer to read works that are a fanfiction of anything that I have seen or read. Otherwise, if the information isn't included, I will find it very hard to move along with the story and eventually not be interested in the job of betareading the work. I also will not offer to rewrite the story for you. Otherwise it wouldn't be your story anymore. I only give advice and comment on the work.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are basically if I know what I am reading about I will do better at telling you what I think of the story. I am very good at eyeing characterization, plot, and grammer such as including commas and what not.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are simple, as said above, I am probably the worst speller. So, I may only catch the small mistakes. If I think you spelled something wrong I will probably not take the extra time to find out the correct spelling of the word and just note to you where it is and ask you to fix it. I also expect you to use spell checker for common words. If it is a word that you are not sure of, look it up. For example, if you are writing a fanfiction about Harry Potter, I totally understand if you spell a spell he uses wrong. Personally, in that situation you should take the time to look up latin words such as those.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have a preference of anything. I just don't want to end up beta reading anything Twilight crossed with your twisted life or killing Bella etc. Please give me something that is actually worth reading. If you are writing a fanfiction that you don't think I might know the original story characters and whatnot, I would be pleased if you give me a quick summary. I just want to be able to understand a bit of back ground information first. Please contact me first and ask me if I know of the original story.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories that I do not prefer to read are ones with a gay relationship of any kind in it. Please don't make me read that. I appreciate gays but I don't want to read about them and their lives. I will read a romance but please don't have a gay couple in it. I will most likely refuse to beta read that.
