Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a beginner, but that doesn't mean I'm not qualified! I love to read all kinds of fiction (hence my presence here) and want nothing more than to help other authors to create their own stories. I may not be the best author out there, but I do have my fair share of editing powers. I've helped many of my friends to edit their stories, from proof-reading to brain-storming,so I'm up for helping any level writer in their journey to becoming more awesome than ever! If anyone is willing to give me a try as a beta, I would appreciate a certain level of patience. It might take me awhile to reply back, but I will also give you the same level of respect. I will not give up on anybody! :) My style of editing is just to lead authors in the direction that I think they need the most improvement/help with. If you're awesome at character development, then you don't really need me to beta it do ya? If there's any specific point of writing that you really need help with, then I'd be more than willing to give advice! And that's what I do, constructive criticism and advice, no flaming. ;)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Not sure what to put in this section, but I would say that I'm pretty good at judging whether someone would be willing to read your stuff. I'm not saying I'll tell you that your story sucks or anything, just help you to find the audience that your writing will attract and then help you to appeal to them even more. Or maybe, try and appeal to other groups of people if that's what is needed. I'm also relatively good at plot suggestions and character developement. Most readers have a pretty good idea of where they want their story to go, but not sure how to get there. That's where I come in! Some characters need to be tweaked to get them to react in the way you want, and some plots need to be twisted to fit the characters to keep them canon. I like to think that those kinds of situations are my specialty. :) I've also wasted a good supply of red pens on spelling mistakes...not to say I'm a grammar nazi, but spelling is important! :)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I think my weakness would be that I might not be the most consistent of beta's. I'll try my best, but there is a life outside of the computer(no way!). I hope this will never happen, but I tend to get really attatched to stories, and get kind of upset when they refuse to update. I know I said I can be patient, but don't you think year long updates are a bit much? I know I'm not one to talk, but if the muses leave, they leave. If you're going to discontinue, tell people! ...Okay, that's enough ranting... One last thing, I'm also a bit of a perfectionist. If I think you have the potential to be a great writer, I'm going to do my best to push to be better. I might get a bit bossy, but I hope you won't hold it against me!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm willing to beta anything that I've ever seen/read: Any American cartoon (I've most likely seen all of them) Some books: Maximum Ride, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Artemis Fowl, Good Omens Only a couple of Movies: Labyrinth, Repo: genetic opera, Phantom of the Opera, Pirates of the Carribean, anything Disney Anime...well, I've probably seen it, but ask first, k? Specialty: Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, Inuyasha, Yu-gi-oh, studio ghibli stuff...there's lots...Games should be limited to Kingdom Hearts and Pokemon. I know some Final Fantasy, but maybe not enough to help with the beta...Don't know many plays, but i'll give it a try if you like! :)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
hard yuri...sorry, but true...-_-;...twilight ...glee(anything that isn't Klaine related)
