Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Cadie. I'm just a normal girl who decided I wanted to be a beta-reader. I find myself going through stories and easily being able to pick out the mistakes with most things, as I've been reading fanfiction for a while. I'm not a college student planning on majoring in English or Literature or Writing or anything like that, I just really like reading fanfiction and helping people to become better writers. Uh, I don't really have a betareading style, or one that I can tell you about, anyways. I just read the stories and pick out the small flaws that are in it. I'm not rude about it or anything like that, it's just a little thought that comes into my mind, like, oh, that isn't the right form of "there". I don't really have any expectations, just please don't give me a story that is just a whole bunch of stuff written down and expect me to fix it up into a nice little story for you. If you need help on plot or something, that's fine, but at least show me that you've put some work into the fic... Please?
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are probably verb tenses and using the right versions of words for the tense the person is using. I can also pick out little typing mistakes and if someone leaves out a word or misspells something pretty easily too.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I guess one of my weaknesses is that I tend to comma splice a lot, I think? I like to use a lot of commas and sometimes I don't know if I should put one somewhere or not. Some spelling stuff might be hard for me to catch if I haven't seen the word a lot. Also, I have this problem where if I read over a story after I've already read over it once, it's harder for me to catch the mistakes. I think it's because I know what is going to happen so my mind just skips over the remaining mistakes, so I try to get them all on my first try. Also if the first and last letters of a word are in the right order, I can accidentally miss that mistake. Like laed and lead. I just read it as lead automatically.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd much rather betaread stories that I'm familiar with the main book/manga/movie/tv show/etc it is based off of. I find it helpful to beta if I know somewhat about the characters. And I only read yaoi fics when it comes to the more mature stuff. If it's something that doesn't involve anything sexual, I'll read heterosexual or yuri fics, but I'm only really comfortable with yaoi sex scenes.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't really like reading fics that involve excessive rape scenes. I'm okay with a few if it's needed for plot or something like that before it turns into something better, but if the whole fic is rape, I'd much rather not read it. Also, no yuri or het if it has sex scenes please. I'm just really not comfortable with writing that stuff myself, so I wouldn't be able to beta it properly.
