Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a beta-reader because I enjoy reading fanfictions as long as they are well written and find it annoying if my reading is stopped by either bad spelling or grammar. When I started writing on fanfiction I am the first to admit that my spelling and grammar were apalling though with encouragment and help they have improved alot. As a beta-reader I will read through your story and correct any instantly obvious mistakes, before going back again to check more thouroughly. On the third reading I will look at the way the sentances are structured. I will highlight any changes made so it is obvious to you where you have made errors or where I feel it could be improved. I will be happy to discuss any issues with you.
English wise I would say that I am quite good I have achieved an A grade in English language when I took it early in November of last year and am predicted an A* in English literature GCSE.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are spelling and grammar (I would say particularly punctuation) I also have quite a good eye for whether the characters you are writing about are in character (as long as I know them well enough.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good at the style of writing, one of my english teachers comments is that I need to develop a writing style, I thought I had one but who knows. So I probably wouldn't be much good at helping you with yours if I don't have one of my own.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to beta stories of up to and including T rating and those with a romantic theme running through them as these are the stories I prefer to read. I think that it would be no good me beta reading a story that I personally didn't find interesting as I wouldn't do as thorough a job as I should.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Though I read some M rated stories I don't think I would be very good at beta-reading them.
