Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My minor is Creative Writing and I have taken at least three workshop classes through my university. I have worked with my peers on their stories and poems trading feedback and advice. I like to be professional about what I take on and I don't like going into anything blind. If you want me to beta a story, please contact me through the PM system first with the title, fandom, genre(s), summary. After that, we can exchange further contact information and discuss preferred methods of sending the documents. I am an honest reader and will not be afraid to give constructive criticism. I will comment first on the strengths of a piece before getting to the weaker areas. Should you ask me to beta, please be prepared for constructive criticism and not just fluffy comments praising your story and your genius. I will be kind about the criticism, though. To me, it should be helpful suggestions. I try to avoid "you should" and "you must" when giving criticism to a story. If I beta your work, I'll have it done within one to two weeks after it's sent to me with my comments and corrections.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am strongest in story structure and narrative. I am good at research and finding continuity errors in a work itself. I am good at spelling, grammar, and capitalization. I love working with emotions and setting the tone of the narrative. I can spot cliches easily in my own writing and in the works of others.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Developing romance, humor, are not my forte. There are times where I slip in grammar and don't catch it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer stories in either Doctor Who (New Who only, please), Danny Phantom, Bleach, or one of Neil Gaiman's works. Although, anything you see in my member profile as an interest will be acceptable as well. The ratings don't matter. Description within the work, should it be prose, would be nice, as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer not to work with sex scenes. I'd also prefer not to work on fics outside of works I am not familiar with. Nothing from Naruto, please. I'd also not rather handle humor.
