Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
For this beta profile, you have not one, but two brilliant minds to help you with your story. We both are in the ‘gifted’ program in our school, so we know our stuff fairly well. We are not harsh, so if you send us a story that really isn’t good, we won’t tell you that. We will list what you need to omit and give advice on what just needs improvement. Even if you don’t ask, we will automatically spell check and grammar check your story, just in case. Since there are two of us, one’s strength is another’s weakness, so you basically have the best of all worlds.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and grammar are two of our biggest strengths. We are very nit-picky and if things don’t sound right, we will do research, argue, and then more research just to figure it out. So, because of that, background research is another one of our strengths. If you want to base a story on something that really happened but you can’t find the right event, we could definitely find something for you. It’s likely that one of us already knows an occurrence that would be good for your story. And for canon stories, we are also good for making book related corrections. If we like a book, we will read it more than once, and we will come to know the characters in the book better than we know ourselves. So if something seems off in your story, and you don’t want the characters to be out of character, we will be able to fix it. We both are very creative, good with communication, and can add depth to your characters and your story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
For the most part, all categories are covered. There is one weakness that both of us have, and it’s that we tend to over think things. Even if something is right, we can convince ourselves that it’s not. This is mainly on school tests, and not with books and movies, but it can happen.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
We prefer stories in which we know the book or movies it’s based on well. We will read any genre, from adventure to western, it doesn’t really matter. Any rating is fine. As long as the story is interesting, we will read it and do our best to correct it if need be.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Crack fics. If you were high one day, whether from sugar or what have you, and you wrote a story based on what you saw while hallucinating, we don’t want it. We are also not anime-fanatics. We have never, and most likely will never, enjoy anime, so don’t bother.
