|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader I am usually laid back, kind, and relaxed. Nothing that you can write about will shock me. I’ve seen it all. So don’t worry about material. I will try to get back to you within one day to three days depending on how long the material is. As for my style? My motto is “critique with kindness.” I am absolutely NOT the type of person that will rake you over the coals. You have my promise. If I absolutely have to be blunt then I will warn you before I do so and I will try to make it as painless as possible. Don’t worry! Me being blunt is pretty rare. : ) But that doesn’t mean I will lie to you. If I have a question or am wondering about something then I will kindly ask you to explain. If you have a problem feel free to come to me and I will help you with anything that you need. I will provide you with feedback and will comment on anything that I think could be improved or that I have a question on. I will also comment on things that I like. I am totally honest. Another thing about me, I do not mistake writing style for error. Everyone is different. Being different is not an error. The errors that I am talking about are grammar, holes in plots, sentence structure, spelling etc. If there IS a hole in the plot, you do not have to tell me what you are planning to do to fix it. You can if you want to but I am merely here to point out what it is so it can be corrected by you. If you find you cannot correct it, I am full of ideas. So if you come up with a blank just say so and I will help you brainstorm. There is no shame in writers block. It happens to me all the time. : ) There are very few things that I actually expect. Like I said, I am a relaxed layed back person. But I ask you to respect my sensibilities. I am a girl and I do not like things that I are depressing. So: THING ONE: no depressing stuff. The ONLY exception to this rule is if you are planning on turning the depressing story around and eventually making it happy. THING TWO: Try to spell as best you can and try to use sentence structure correctly so I can understand what your trying to say. If you make a mistake that is okay too! That's what I'm here for. : )THING THREE The only other thing that I really require is that you try your best for you. Not for me or for anyone else. Know your limitations and be comfortable about it. If you feel like raising the bar because you want to and not because anyone else is pressuring you to then that is great! GO for it! : ) Other than those three things, I don’t really have any expectations. All I require is that you try your best and that is really all I can require. If you want me to betared for you than contact me at or make sure the subject says "FANFICTION" in all caps and then the title of the story. Thankyou.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excell at fixing grammar errors. I can spot them a lot of the time. I excell at imagery. I can help you be more descriptive. I am good at plots, story lines, and seeing the exact type of relationship between characters. I am good at deletion. Some things just don't belong in stories. For example you are talking about the economic depression and then you suddenly just add in I like candy. DELETE! he he he.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not good at higher level english rules. I can do them but i don't know them. Other than that, I don't mean to boast, but if there is a weakness i have not yet found it. He! he! he! XD :) If you spot one let me know! :)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will do any type of story(as long as it's not depressing) but I prefer the romance genere. M is a personal fave of mine. Mostly because there are less restrictions and you are not tied down as an author. But i will read any story with any rating (as long as it's not depressing) and respond appropriately.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
OK. I think i've said this a million time ut it's really important to me. DO NOT SEND ME ANYTHING DEPRESSING! I will NOT read anything that is depressing. No matter what. From K to M. Lemon, femslash, Romance, General Humorous i don't really care i won't read it if it will make me cry. So don't send me anything that is depressing without a happy ending. Don't send something that will make me cry. :(
