Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I won't take on anymore than five stories at a time. Because I don't just skim through I actually read it and depending on how long the chapter is sometimes that takes time. Writers must expect it to take up to a week for me to beta a chapter. I'm a very busy person and I have school and my sister to take care of, but I won't take longer than a week. I'll fix any spelling and/or punctuation mistakes and occassionally add (in red) a suggestion I have when it comes to describing something or wording something a specific way. If you are planning on coming out with chapters each day then I need a warning first because like I said before I'm very busy so I will need to make time for it. If I cannot beta your story I will tell you. I will only beta a fanfiction if I have read the book, seen the show/movie, ect; that it is based on. Other than that just bring me a story and I'll beta it as best I can ^_^
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Hmm...I think one of my strongest points is that I'm very good when it comes to metaphorical descriptions. My mind is very imaginative. Also when I read a well-written story it's easy for me to connect with the main character(s) and their emotions. So if the story is describing the character being nervous because they're in trouble I'm not going to suggest a description that implies the kind of nervousness that comes from being in front of a bunch of people or doing something embarrassing. And I have a good eye for spotting punctuation and spelling mistakes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness? I don't know, I guess I would have to say if I'm rushed sometimes I don't put as good suggestions for changing parts. And I also tend to take a while and procrastinate because I am always so caught up in all the other things I have to do. I have a tendancy to forget things sometimes like if I look at something and say okay this is what I need to change, and then I get distracted or something, I sometimes forget about it when I come back to it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer romance stories. Good love stories keep me interested and so it's a lot easier for me to keep my focus on the story. Or maybe a story about family or close friends. But for the most part I need a good love story for me to not get bored. But not like completely fluffy and sappy, like it has to have it's good parts and it's bad parts.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories only about war or violence. Action stories I can handle if they're good, but stories about blood and guts and gore, I just can't. Unless there's a love story that ties into that lol. But I just don't find anything interesting about something soley based on the gore and violence.
