Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have no expectations; anyone can send me any kind of story as long as it is not listed in the "Not My Cup of Tea" section. I will read your story over and change the grammatical errors immediately, then send a note to you suggesting anything if I see fit. I won't be too harsh; everyone can be benefited by proofreading, even professionals.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am skilled at fixing grammatical errors and I am a great speller. I am very thorough and will not be lazy; I'll take the time to look up what I don't know and to really dedicate myself to beta-ing your work.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is obviously that English is not my first language; however, as you can tell from my sentence structure and from my posted work, I do not do poorly in English and the reason I am here is to improve my skills. The more I read, the better I become, and the more people proofread your work, the better you will become, so it is a win-win situation.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My favorite stories focus on romance and comedy. I love stories with shippings and couples of all kinds. I prefer fandoms I enjoy and know a lot about. Obviously, I will get more excited about a fandom I like but that does not mean I will be more dedicated to one story than another. My favourite fandoms are Disney and Pixar, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon, and Nintendo. Specifically, I really enjoy Tangled, Toy Story, Tinkerbell, Megamind, the Shrek series, The Fairly Odd Parents, iCarly, Kirby, and The Legend of Zelda. I watch a wide range of television shows including Dr. Who, House, and Grey's Anatomy. My preferred live-action movies are Enchanted, the 2010 Alice in Wonderland movie, Night at the Museum, and James Cameron's Avatar.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not read stories with excessive blood and gore. I will read rape stories if they are not incredibly brutal and bloody. I will not beta Twilight stories because I have no interest in the fandom, and I will not beta most anime because I hardly know anything about anime. Stories focused on bloody battles and war are not my cup of tea. I don't want to be completely disgusted by guts and such while I read. I'm sorry; I just can't do it. However, I will read stories with war and blood in them as long as it is handled in a reasonable way. If you send me a story I cannot handle, I will direct you to another beta reader.
