Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am beta reader. I often revise things for friends, like essays, and have beta'd a few fanfictions in the past. (I'm a beta for Project Team Beta.) (Note: I use OpenOffice, though if needed I could use Word.) I am blunt in general and though I will refrain from being mean and rude, do not expect me to sugarcoat anything. If I don't like your writing, I'll tell you. I'm not really offended by anything but a few key subjects. I'm open to anything. I also beta in a very precise way. If you have a preferred way of communicating with betas, tell me so I can meet your needs. If you dislike a style of mine, tell me and I'll refrain from doing that. Just don't be rude to me and I'm good. If I beta for you, I'll expect you to tell me the background of the story somewhat and where you're planning to take your story. I won't demand that you update your story, but if you stop writing I expect you to tell me. Also tell me how long you expect/want the story to be. Tell me your weaknesses and what you're uncertain of writing. Also tell me what you won't change for any reason.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a wide vocabulary (which is not the same as spelling). I'm good at planning story-lines with dates, if you want something like that. I'm good at picking up what you should have mentioned, such as a character arriving or leaving. If you need your reader to know something without knowing it's important, I can help you with that. I'm good at knowing when a detail is incorrect about a character. I have a good grip on grammar and most of it rules, and also have a variety of resources to go to if there is something I don't know.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My spelling is atrocious. Well, it has been getting better, seeing as I can spell atrocious, but still has a long way to go. I am not good at describing things in a physical sense. I can, but they don't seem to flow nicely in any story. I'm horrible at romance. I'll beta it but I won't be able to help you fix it too much, but I can tell you if the characters are way out of themselves. A few grammar rules got me confused, though not many.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Danny Phantom and Harry Potter over everything. Then White Collar, which I've been watching since it came out and ever episode after that, Supernatural, though only seasons 1-5, and Kuroshitsuji. I have re-watched all the episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender and all of Korra. I will beta anything in the categories I've put, but those I know the best. The others not as well. I love horror more than should be healthy, so if someone dies or gets tortured, I'm all for it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer Harry Potter the books over the movies. Supernatural season 6 I have no knowledge of, so not I'm not very helpful for that. I'm also not a fan of Zutara (for ATLA). However, I'm willing to beta anything if someone wants, but for some things I might only be able to provide a technical aspect. The things in my preferred section are the only fandoms I have a huge/decent knowledge of. The others might be a little rusty.
