|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have a few expectations of the people who would like me to beta for them. Number 1- accept the fact that I am anal about grammer and sentence structure. Number 2- I don't have consistent internet access, so I may be slow to respond to emails, or slow at sending back your chapters/stories. I will, however, endevor to respond quickly. Number 3- I am absolute pants at slang and slurring words, so i probably won't touch that.
My style is pretty simple. If you want to send me a completed story and have me proof read it or check to see if it makes sense, I can do that. If you want to send me a story chapter by chapter, I can do that too. I can be pretty harsh about mt critisims, but i really do want your story to be the best it can be.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strength is that I have been in several high level english clsses- in high school I was in College level english classes, and now that i'm a freshman in college, I am taking junior level classes. I don't know if this counts, but I started reading when i was five and haven't stopped since, so I have a pretty good concept of plotline development and character developement.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm stubborn. I will try to get you to do what I think you should, but I know it's your story, so yeah. I'm also American and have little to no concept of British slang.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Really, anything from Harry Potter, Stargate SG1, Tamora Peirce, Anne Bishop, ans Sherrilyn kenyon. Eclectic, I know. Oh, and I really like slash and non-cannon stories.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anime. Sorry, but I don't understand it. At all. And I do not like cannon pairings. Sorry all you Harry-Ginny, Jack/Sam fans out there.
