|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, people of Earth. I'm AJ, also known s Avril, April, and Slayer.
I love editing, but I am an unbelievable procrastinator and will endlessly put the editing off. It's very sad, really.
My style? I will aim for the storyline. Next will be grammar. Then spelling. Then tenses. Then punctuation. Simple enough.
I have a tendency to edit the story a little, so bear with me.
My expectations? I want a decent storyline. I cannot bear awful, boring plots, so if you send me a pathetic, dull one, I'll edit it. Simple as that. Not the main idea, but certain boring parts. I also would like, at the very least, coherency.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, punctuation, storylines, and reading speed.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Mary-Sues/Gary-Stus. I dislike them, but if they are vague, I overlook them.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vampire Academy, Twilight, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, High School Musical, Princess Diaries, Fearless, The Mediator, Teen Idol, All-American Girl, Sweet Valley, Pretty Little Liars, Star Trek: 2009, Marley and Me, Spiderwick Chronicles and It Takes Two. I may make exceptions, so PM me.
I absolutely j'adore original plotlines, as well as thrillers, fantasy, and horror. I'm okay with romance, though.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
ANGEL, gay pairings, mature themes, OOC characters.
