Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy helping others improve their writing styles and stories. Through my vast experience of writing college papers and my own stories I will try my best to help improve grammatic, structure and word usage of people seeking my services. I expect authors seeking my services to be open to new ideas, constructive criticism as well as patience. I do ask for at least three days to critique, edit, etc. documents. I have a relatively easy schedule, but there are times that it gets hectic. You know how life can be. I will try and get it back to you as soon as I can, in under the three days. If it will be longer, I will let you know.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are more in the form of structure of the story. I'll assist in the formation of paragraphs, misspelled words, grammatic errors, etc. I also try to assist with writer's block by offering suggestions from previously written chapters or offer new suggestions when appropriate.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not extensively versed in Japanese, and do not pretend to be an expert, but I have been doing a lot of research to be able to understand what is needed and how most things are done. If I have to, I'm not afraid to do a little research via the internet to correct cultural errors, etc.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer most types of stories, mainly Inuyasha and Once Upon a Time fan fics, but will be open to other types of stories as well. I really enjoy stories of alternate universe, and various pairings. Also willing to beta lemony goodness as well, with a few restrictions. See 'Not my Cup of Tea.'
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not really into poetry. Sorry, but I had that shoved down my throat in college. I can look at it, but as to rhyme, pentameter, haiku, etc, I'm at a lose as to how to help you. I would refer you to a poetry expert in that case. Absolutely no Yuri/Yaoi pairings or anything with underage sex. Sorry, really not my cup of tea.
