Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. I am a human (note the user name) and I have never been abducted by aliens. That is how I got this job! I like longer stories but not too much so. I love reading stories still in the wraps and I always encourage people to keep writing! Before you go for a Beta make sure that you have really givin your story some thought, spelling is mostly correct and puctuation is my Pet Peeve! I will give constructive critisism and I do speak a little spanish (although that probably does not help much...)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are reading long stories which most readers cannot stand. I can really help with storyline, plot construction and puntuation. I will actually give constructive critisism with OOCness or if things are getting rushed too much and I pretty much just be honest. Im no Simon Cowell though. (I'm not mean!) Also, if there is a story written in Spanish that an author is having trouble translating into English, I can offer pointers and ultimately correct verb tenses and edit the English version as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Organization. I am not quite as good at judjing the organization of the writing that different writers set up. Second, if it is really long, school may come in the way of reading a story chapter. It may take a few hours on some days but never over 3 days if you follow the general rule of no more than 100,000 words. I look at the main jist of the story, not just the little twitchy grammar points. I do care if it's obvious but if not, so be it! :D That's about it. See! Im perfect with being imperfect!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any books I've read you can get very thorough feedback from me on. They include Percy Jackson, Dragonriders of Pern, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Most Diana Wynne Jones, Ally Carter, Maximum Ride and sooooo many more that I just will forget to put. So if you have a book not on the list PM me and ask me if I have read it. I've read over 100 books in the last 1/2 a year (I know, I think I'm becoming addicted) if it is NOT Twilight or any really irritating book then I've probably read it. Thanks!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm very sorry but I hate Twilight FanFictions. Harry Potter gets boring after a while of reading them (unless they're Dramione :D)and stories over 100,000 words aren't pleasant... Anyhoo, I don't like FFs to a book I haven't read. I kinda get lost.
