|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Basically, I've managed to stray away from writing stories as a whole, which is sad for me, but it's also given me time to focus on other things. That being said, I think I'd really like to go back to beta reading. Since I'm not involved in writing my own pieces, I find that I will have a lot more time to focus and really pick apart anyone's story if so asked.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have declared myself a grammar and spelling Nazi. Even when I'm not doing it intentionally, I pick out little grammar or spelling points. I have a watchful eye when it comes to these things. On top of that, I like to think that I have some helpful ideas in my creative little mind; hopefully, they're something I can discuss with you to possibly add to your fic. br /
I'm not afraid to be honest. I'd like you to know how you're doing, and I'd like to be upfront about your writing. If you don't receive honest opinions, how are you supposed to improve, right?
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best with timing. It's better if I am beta-ing during my summer vacation because I have more spare time than I know what to do with, so I am able to read stories at a much faster pace and more /
When it comes to deadlines, I am not necessarily the best. I sometimes get distracted and find myself doing other things. I'm a huge procrastinator, so it's better if you don't have a distinct deadline, especially one that is very near in the future. Of course, when someone has a specific time by which they want the story, then I will do everything I possibly can to fulfill such deadline.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am personally a fan of beta-ing stories which have chapters that are 7 pages or less. Like I said, my timing is not always great, so I'd prefer to read something that it a bit shorter so it takes less time for me to read through. I'm not saying I won't read a story that is over this limit, because I'd be delighted to, but it is more-so for your benefit than /
I am a huge lover of anything that is absolutely, positively super-dramatic. Drama and tragedy is more what I lean towards, so I am all for it if you have a dramatic fic you'd like me to read. I'm not saying that I want to read something that is completely melodramatic, over-the-top, throw every obstacle possible at the characters, but I do love me some intense dramas.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There's really nothing I won't beta, so long as it stays in the categories I have listed. If it's a fandom I am unfamiliar with, or not a fan of, then obviously I don't care much to read for it. br /
I'm not exactly one to hate pairings. I have my favorites, and the rest I am rather satisfied with, so I'm not going to be too picky in that department. This goes for both canon and non-canon. Of course, if it's a totally obscure couple that I in no way see happening, in anyone's world, then I may gently turn you down. But that's highly unlikely,because I doubt many people would be able to think of such pairings.
