Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm kind of harsh so if you can't take criticism, I'm probably not the best person to go to. I correct grammar and spelling, but also help direct word choice so the characters sound more like themselves. If you insist on dumbing down certain characters speech I will CUT you. Hermione talks like Hermione, Draco talks like Draco, Harry talks like Harry, and Ron talks like Ron. Not even Ron sounds ridiculously stupid when he talks, foolish though he may be. I'm known for rearranging entire writing bits because it's choppy and delivering scathing remarks. I'm ruthless on other people's work but for some reason slack a little on mine (probably cause I want to spin it out fast).
Also, if you want me to beta it would be MUCH easier if you're okay with emailing instead of using the Message thing on here, because then I can highlight the file and mark it up with different colors to show you what I think should be changed and how it could be changed.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm an impeccable speller (usually) with a very high vocabulary. I'm also a stickler for word choice to make everything sound proper and flow properly. I'll also tell you if your idea is just crappy and you should scrap it before you go any further. Yes. I'm mean. I'm not going to apologize for it. Deal with it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Ruthlessness, and tendency to want to scramble an ENTIRE story around because your ordering will look funny to me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer betareading original stories if you please. Umm, but that's it, not particularly picky.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Eh, nothing really. I'm not picky about what I beta, but it should definitely be something that I've read, and while I've read a lot, message me before you request I beta.
