Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not going to lie to you. Ever. I won't be mean, because I know how hard a lot of you work on your stories, but if its bad I'm not going to keep it to myself. But I'll give you contructive critism, not just shoot you down. If you want a beta you want to improve, and you can't do that if your beta is all rainbows and sunshine or just flat out hates everything you write. I'm both a reader and a writer, and I know how to recognise a good writer. I don't have a lot of requirements as a beta reader, but I won't read it if its crap.
When you send me a beta request I'd like a breif description of your story, your style, where you are as a writer, and what you are looking for from me as your beta. If it lkooks like we'll get along, I'll get back to you. If I do become your beta, I'm on fanfic at least once a day, and since I HATE homework and I HATE extracurriculars, I'll pretty much be all yours. You'll get what you send me back by the end of the week at the latest. I like to know a lot about what you plan on happening, what happened to the characters before you actually started writing to story, the character's personalities and their physical appearances. I'm very into characters-obviously-and if there's a line of dialogue that doesn't work with that personality or an event that seems unrealistic, you will know.
Any book listed below as a book that I will read fanfic for I have loved and read multiple times. You won't need to do any explaining.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I would say that as a writer I'm best at sentence structure, just changing things around a little so that it sounds sweeter or funnier. I'm also good at plots and character profiling, pretty much anything that involves the story in itself.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I admit, I'm not the best speller out there. But I can usually tell if something isn't spelled right when I read it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really like romance or comedy stories. But I also like the heavy stuff, just as long as it doesn't involve a main character dying or giving something huge up, then I'm willing to read it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like slash or couples that aren't together in the actual books. I only read fanfics that could have happened in the book, just that the author didn't happen to write about it. Like, something that happened before or after the book took place, without changing any of the major couples or their sexualities.
