Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! As a beta-reader, I've been writing for myself for 5 or 6 years, and only in the more recent years have gotten into creating successful plots. As a result, I know the easy mistakes people can trip up on through experience. I'm currently in my first year of taking an A level in English Language and Literature, and am predicted A grades along with the A* grades I got at GCSE level. Along with the Fruits Basket fanfiction I'm currently writing, I have two other Original stories in the works that are well into their plotlines that many have commented on and are fans of. I am British so can only help in that language, though I do know of American spellings and a small amount of Japanese suffixes and phrasing (-san, -kun, Nii-san, Senpai etc.) and some English period colloquialisms.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at keeping canon characters 'in character' and will gladly help anyone out if their writing of canon characters are going off the rails a little. I also excel at helping with plot development and knowing just how much build up is required until the climax of the story. I read things usually at an oddly fast level, so any work submitted to me will be completed in a matter of days unless of course I'm getting bogged down with A level exams and such. I'm also very good at picking up on spelling mistakes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can get a little bit rusty with grammar, but this usually doesn't pose problems. If I skim read I can sometimes miss things out, but I read over things quite often so they will be picked up.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My preferences have to be the genres I enjoy. There's a rather large list as there are not many I won't like to beta: +Romance +Humour +Hurt/comfort +Fantasy and a lovely bit o' Angst thrown in are my most favourite genres.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Western, simply because I have no experience in writing in that field. Any seriously gory horror-themed pieces, because I can never write that realistically and as a result couldn't offer any advice in how to do so.
