|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello there, I'm Jay, and I'm an editor, if you wish for me to edit your work, I will read through and correct your grammar, spelling, punctuation, accuracy, character accuracy, give you advice on style and give you an honest readers perspective.
I will also provide you with a before and after version of the editing, and notes pointing out the mistakes and some critique, unless otherwise requested. I believe in editing being a learning process for the author.
I expect the works, or the sections of the work I am required to edit to be completed or near completion, I am not squeamish, or judgmental. I will edit stories for any pairings in my listed fandoms, as well as original work. I will read any rating, and am not picky about content, be it intimacy or gore.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good with grammar, spelling and style, I enjoy helping people work out the hairy parts in their writing and can provide valuable insight where you may be stuck, or are writing in an area you are unfamiliar with. I am knowledgeable in many areas, and I have very valuable resources I can offer, as well as experience with writing and dealing in the fields of law, music, science, drugs, intimacy, music, language, culture, street life, medicine, psychology and the art of conversation.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not as fluent in the area of punctuation. I may miss punctual and a few small grammatical errors, though I am very thorough, this makes me slow, and being a busy person, doing this may take me a while, if you want the job done quickly, I'm not your girl, but I am if you want it done well.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories with emotional content, and things that are written from the heart, I really will edit MOST anything, but I really do enjoy humor, romance, and introspective kind of pieces. I also love poetry, and prose.
I also prefer the fandoms Kingdom Hearts, Invader Zim, House, and the Final Fantasy series.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Action is not my favorite genre, and I'm definitely NOT one for religious themes, in the least. I also prefer not to edit work that is very long, if it is given to me in smaller sections, I will be fine. my limit is 9,000 words per section of editing.
I refuse to edit self-insert or original character insert works. I just cannot do it.
