Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will beta almost anything quite happily. I'm friendly and I promise I don't bite so if there are any shy people who are a bit nervous about posting, I'm your gal. I can get beta'd chapters or fics back to a deadline and if there isn't one, my average is about one or two days. If you feel like you can't finish a story I am helping you with - no worries and no rush. I know how that is. I can either cheer lead you or help you find a new project. Hakuna Matata policy. My beta-reading style is all about co-operation, I get given a piece or work to beta and I will try and fix punctuation and grammar and give you my ideas, if you don't like my ideas, you don't need to use them. No arguments, a completely calm, relaxed routine.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization and making sure the plot is reasonable are pretty good strong points with me. Imagery e.g. making metaphors and effective adjectives has always been important to me as a writer so I have a lot of practise on that. I'm decent at formatting as I believe a format can make or break a fic. I enjoy cheer-leading and encouraging writers and I find that people newer to fan fiction find that a great deal of help. I can of course help out with spelling and punctuation, I'm not perfect with either or the two, but I will work extremely hard to make sure the thing I'm working on is done to the highest standard I can produce.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Comma splicing is my main weakness, but I will work on it. Impatience as well, but if I'm told I'm pushing to much, I will stop with no arguments. I just need a firm hand is all. Occasionally I have slips and have a few technical errors, but I will try my best not to - especially since it is someone else's work. Besides, punctuation and spelling is easier if you are fixing someone elses for some reason.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm mainly a slash type person, but I will happily beta anything- be it het, slash or just friendship. Genre wise I pretty much like it all, especially hurt/comfort. I prefer real-life shows to cartoons and animé, but I can give the other two a bash. The only animé I can really do is Pokemon in terms of knowing about the characters etc, but if you're just looking for a tech beta I can do literally anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not a huge fan of main character death fics, but I will do them. I also don't like Mary Sue fiction, especially when it's a long lost daughter etc, but I'd still be game for it.
