Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Chrissi and I'm 20. I've never beta-d before but I'd love to give it a go and help other writers, plus I'm just to damn chatty for my own good :D Well, I love writing and reading stories but I'm quite picky about whether I like a story/plot or not. I've done English Literature A Level's, GCSE's (not sure about the equivalent in the US) so I have at least a basic understanding of English and will give fair, honest and constructive critique/praise.I'd prefer to beta for Harry Potter, Twilight, Holby City, St Trinian's, CSI:Miami, CSI:NY, Ashes to Ashes and generally any sort of British TV Show that I've seen. Other than that, I can't wait to beta so just PM me and I'll give it a go.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'd like to say I'm pretty good at spelling, grammar and punctuation. Creative writing was always my favourite part of English at school and I'm pretty happy to help with developing characters, storylines or anything like that. I'm also pretty good at sticking to deadlines :)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are soppy love scenes, I just can't get to grips with all that lovey-dovey emotion! I'm not too brilliant with my knowledge on things such as the US School system, or US TV shows, but I'm willing to learn.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta for books/movies/shows that I know quite well, otherwise my input might be pretty pointless for you. I have my favourite pairings just like everyone else, especially Dramione, or anything Bellatrix related in HP, and then Luc/Eddi in Holby.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a fan of slash in any particular sense (I've got nothing against it but I just would have no idea how to write it), I won't beta for anything I havent read/seen and despite fear of being lynched, I'm not a huge fan of Edward or Bella in Twilight.
