β : Rinolia is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Everything I read I end up editing. Whether it be a flyer on campus, an e-mail, or the newspaper, I will edit anything I find wrong subconsciously. It's just what I do. So I decided to fill out a beta profile and extend my anal retentiveness to other people's stories.
I'm an English Writing/Literature & Political Science double major at college, so I write things. A lot. Which can range from the most abstract and creative to policy papers (which are the most boring things on earth to write and even more boring to read). That being said, I think it lends me experience with a lot of different types of writing and also the most effective way to get a point across.
For a "style" I guess I just have a tendency to read the story as a whole first, just to make sure it flows, and then go back and do the corrections. I try to get things done quickly, but I am a college student, so I could venture a guarantee around one week of you sending it to me, you'll get it back.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I pick up on really nitpick-y things like grammar and punctuation without even realizing I do it. I also think I'm pretty good at characterization and subtle, not overt and obnoxious humor.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a tendency to say things in twenty words when they could have been said in five. Some people like that kind of writing style, but when I see people do it I cringe a little, and I know I totally do it. I have been taking journalism & magazine writing classes, so I think I've cut down on it a bit, but I do have a tendency to be verbose.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Umm, I'll read pretty much anything. Original ideas are always a plus, or even new takes on a done before plot. There's always a new angle to write on. Judging by the stories I have written, I think it's plain to see that I am a yaoi fangirl, but I'm not against other kinds of stories.
My OTPs are Matt/Mello - or Mello/Matt, not picky (from Death Note) and Ryuichi/Tohma (from Gravitation), so if you have a story with either one of those pairings that needs beta-ing, consider it already being pounced on by me. :)
But I do welcome pretty much anything!
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Main character OCs. I am absolutely not a huge fan of OCs. I don't really care how well they're written or how many flaws they have, there's just something about them that never quite sits well with me.
