Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My betareading style is I look more closely at the use of words that people include in their fanfic's like plurals and the POV'S. My expectations of people that are hoping to acquire my services is that they themselves first read their story just once and tell me if they have any concerns. I will then address them and give my feedback. I'm not really a professional reader but I have been told that I have an eye for catching certain things in written pieces. For example, if you write a short chapter, it may appear that you're rushing the plot and your readers won't fully understand what they're reading, that is something that I look for. Another thing I look for is use of dialogue and whether or not it makes sense. Like, I look for the characters feelings behind the words and if it matches it or not. If I don't know what series you're writing about then I want to at least make sure I get a general idea of what the character is like.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are punctuation because that's something that just naturally catches my eye. I also think I'm good at dialogue and if you're rushing your words then I'll let you know. I look to see if the POV that your using is continuous and whether or not the whole piece makes sense in general. Also just spelling mistakes I'm good at as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not too good at sexual descriptions because I don't really know how to edit that very well. I'm not very good at fighting scenes and how to describe them. All in all I'm not a pro at big descriptions and I'm sorry I didn't write a lot for this section it's just I can't really think about the work that I can't edit versus what I can.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer anime or manga stories over comics or books because I'm more used to that style of writing. I would also prefer work that is K through T. The anime and manga series that I specialize in are listed on my main profile as well as the characters. Note that those aren't the manga/anime's that I will only do it's just that those are the ones I am best at.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would not like to recieve any rated M work because of the explicit material and some of the language is a little inappropriate. I also would not like anything having to do with the end-of-the-world, none of those scenarios please because I have a strong phobia against that stuff. I don't want to betaread stories that involve rape or other sexual crimes because that is pretty disturbing as well.
