Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My name is Kaitlyn, and though I am not an experienced beta-reader on this site yet, I have proofread over various people's papers and now I have been asked to go over a novel-in-progress. I check over things as I read them, and I read them very thoroughly, so it may take me a while to get done what I have to do, depending on the type of project at hand. If you want me to be a beta-reader for you, I ask that you not want me to rewrtite the story for you and I want you to have a basic knowledge of grammar and spelling. I realize everyone makes mistakes, I just don't want to have to proofread two pages of "He ain't gots no life, nowlege, and he ain't gots no love in his hart." Also, if it has lemons in it, send it on to another beta-reader, because I will not read it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good with grammar and spelling. I won't stress over the hardly-known rules of grammar that don't make too much of a difference, but it will sound grammatically correct once I'm through with it. I am also well-versed in making a paper or story flow.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I am a bit too picky. If you want something that I want changed to stay the same because it expresses your ideas better, simply tell me. I am not against poetic license.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would like to go over something that's subject is familiar to me. I am an anime dork, so Naruto, Inuyasha, FMA, Bleach, you name it; they're all fine. Popular novels, such as Harry Potter, the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, Dan Brown's books, the House of Night novels, and of course, Twilight, are all okay as well. I am open to other stories, but please be prepared to give me a little background information if I need it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If it's riddled with curse words, sex scenes, or anything of the like, you can count me out. A bit of romance is good, but there's a difference between creative writing and porn.
