|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello world, I'm actually new to betareading. It's something I've always wanted to do, however, so you can be assured that I'll try my best. I really take interest in darker genres, and I especially have a thing for stories of a psychological nature. I'd take romance too, even though they would normally not be my first choice. I'm usually pretty fast during breaks/weekends, but once school starts there is no guaruntee that I'll be able to get through your stories quickly.
If you're interested in having me beta for you, send me a short excerpt/summary of your story. I'll reply with whether or not I'll take you up.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I rarely make spelling or grammar mistakes. And if I do, spellcheck is there to rescue me ^^. I'm usually pretty good with cutting out redundancy in stories, and I like to think that I'm pretty good with developing themes.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Punctuation, punctuation, punctuation! For some reason, I end up putting period/commas in awkward places, and thus my writing sometimes seems disjointed. I also can't, for the life of me, overcome awkward phrasing.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything in the angst, drama, tragedy, horror, categories. Stories that really make you think, stories that challenge ideas we all have about the world. Anything plausible involving psychology. I'd prefer stories in the Harry Potter, Naruto,or Yu-Gi-Oh fandoms, but I'll do Phantom of the Opera, Bleach, and almost anything else If I end up taking a liking to the story. Romance wise I'm open to anything: Yaoi, Yuri, incest, etc.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fluff. Overly fluffy cheesy romances, and comedies. No parodies. I will not ever, I repeat, ever do anything Twilight. I also probably won't do stories focused on OC's, but I might if they're very well done.
