|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm always willing to read over whatever is necessary. I'm good about getting on AIM and am more than willing to help through emails as well. I tend to hate things that can't stick to the outline, if you're using someone else's character and you're butchering said character, I'm going to tell you! I'm not some evil woman hell bent on ruining someone else's art, I just want to help present fanfiction in a format that isn't painful. Seeing a story that it wonderful and everything, but is full of gramatical errors makes me cringe!
I don't expect everyone to be able to produce something that is mind boggling, but I don't want to beta something for someone else who has no intentions of finishing what they're writing. Don't waste my time, please. I'm not the best, but I am good enough, I'd say. Ask for experience or anything, I'm copy editor of the Southside Sentinel, a school newspaper, but a newspaper all the same.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I tend to be a stickler on things like commas. If I think a sentence needs a pause I'm going to make sure it's known. When I am reading I want it to seem natural and flow as it would when someone speaks! I cannot stand it when I go to read a fiction and someone has a work of fiction that is so creative and amazing, but it's brought down by all sorts of spelling mistakes and switches back and forth between the tenses! Then there's the pronoun problem. When someone has I and then switches over to he or she..... I'm usually good about offering help with detail work as well. I'm always willing to help with plot problems, characterizations, and other things as well. Certain things just get on my nerves and I'm all too willing to help!
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have to say that as a writer dialogue is always my forte and I always have something to offer there. I do like to try and put too much in, so I may try to offer more than is necessary and I'm going to be expected to complain about commas. I swear, I'm probably the worst with commas. I fill everything I write with commas and try to do that to everyone else. I'm bad about trying to glue my style to others, so don't let me do it!
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm fond of reading romance, so it's better if I stick to that, considering I'll work quicker since I enjoy it so much. I also love horror and action, I'm up for just about anything, though.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not big on helping with angst, but if you really want me to have a go at it I'll try. (Just don't mind me when I start crying or whatnot.)
