Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a keen writer myself, I use my beta reading status to help you in improving and really wringing the most out of your own talents. I never try to take away from your own creative control, however I do give creative suggestion occasionally. By no means do you have to take any of these suggestions to heart, but simply keep them in mind, as I'll only bring them up in rare circumstances. I heavily assist with spelling, grammar and the general setup of your work (paragraphing and correctly setting up quoting, etc..). Often when I have a suggestion about the overall setup of a sentence or paragraph I'll add a comment in italics beside it, rather than simply changing your work (unless the mistake is at the most basic level) so you're always free to disregard any suggestion if you don't agree. So, in closing, if you use me as a beta reader you'll get a high quality service from someone who has been beta reading stories for over 6 years. You'll get your grammar, spelling and characterization checked to a tee. You'll get suggestions in paragraph and sentence setup, but not someone who is too overbearing or intolerant of your own (precious) work. If you have any questions about what I do, don't hesitate to e-mail me and I'll be more than happy to answer any questions.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, grammar and the correct setup of paragraphs and phrases. Creative ideas and the ability to be able to suggest ideas that may benefit your work. I'm also a bit of a veteran when it comes to fanfiction; although I'm only 20, I've been writing fanfiction since I was 12, posting on fanfiction.net for several years and have beta read for many, many people for over 6 years, so I'm pretty attuned to everything a good beta reader should embody. I'm a writer of fanfiction myself, and if you have any doubts, please read some of my fiction. I have several specialised areas which I writer fiction on myself, which include The Powerpuff Girls, Invader Zim, Nightmare Before Christmas and The Incredibles. I wolld be able to offer a much higher quality of service in these areas as I can go into characterization a hell of a lot more!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to want to perfect things, which I guess could be seen as a fault. I also tend to lean toward more angsty fics and tend to favour them slightly more than other genres (see my own fics).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta read stories that are intended to be rather long, with an interesting, thought provoking, and intelligent plot, with a writer who is both enthusiastic and bright. I want to be pulled into the story. I want to be interested. I don't tend to like to beta fluffy love fics or those that are intellectually shallow.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As I have stated above. If you're unsure, please contact me.
