Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
If you're here, you're looking for someone who can beta your story. And I'd be willing to help you with that friend. I myself am a fan of helping others hash out their ideas for stories and plots and will tend to focus on character and plot more than grammar and spelling. If you want me to beta for you, I simply ask that dialogue between us remain respectful and that you be upfront as to what you require in terms of beta. So long as we're both honest with each other, there's no reason we cannot get along and make a wonderful story in the process.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a particular talent at playing devil's advocate: of asking why things work a certain way in a story, or asking why characters do or think certain things, of making suggestions for possible future chapters that might work. I also thrive at looking for and consequently plugging plot holes no matter where they may be. Character and setting is the name of the game with me.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'll be the first to admit I'm not a history nor an english professor and so won't be able to effectively advise on anything requiring a great deal of historical accuracy or grammatical perfection. I'm also not bilingual and so will not be able to help if you're looking for someone who can correct non-english grammar/word usage.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
As I've admitted above I'm not what one would call a grammar perfectionist. That said, I do prefer stories have a minimal effort of spell checking and paragraph breaks put in. I also prefer stories that have something of an interesting premise or take an old premise and do something new with it. Though even a lack of that won't prevent me from reading a story so long as the characters and setting are engaging enough and the english language isn't having any atrocities committed against it in the body of the text.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a fan of yaoi or slash as a genre. Likewise if I see that an OC/self-insert is the main character as though it was supposed to be a selling point to your work, expect that my eyes will proceed to roll themselves harder than Mad-Eye Moody's artificial peeper at Voldemort's birthday party. Otherwise I will give just about anything a good faith first impressions/look. Whether it goes further after that will be entirely up to the author and their opinion of my critiques.
