|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have way too much time on my hands at the moment and need something to do, so I can ensure you that I will be fast and attentive. I have a tendency to be very blunt, but that also means I'm honest. And that last sentence just made me sound really mean, but I promise you I'm not. I'm just willing to be the one to tell you the things that you don't want to hear, but I'm also a very positive person and will be the first to point out your strengths. (Seriously. I'm a gushing fangirl at heart.)
Please, no chat speak, unless part of the story is an IM or text message. Chat speak is impossible to read! Also, I'd be glad to help those who are trying to translate one of their stories from Spanish to English. No movies of books listed unless stated otherwise. PM/e-mail me with questions.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Dialogue is probably my strongest area. I am a grammar and spelling freak. Characterization. Friendship. Fluff. Romance. Family. Emotional problems (I've had many experiences with depression.) I also tend to have encyclopedia-like knowledge about the things I love, so I can catch small inconsistencies with the canon and such.
I'm also good at formatting and summaries if need be.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Not very good with humor or parodies. Mystery/Suspence. Never been kissed.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Preferably canon pairings in romance. Stories that display the different dynamics of a strong friendship.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No slash or lemon please. No AU.
