|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'll be frank. I'm in love with OCs. That doesn't mean your story absolutely has to include one though. However, if you do have a story with an OC you'd like me to beta-read, I will point out everything. If I like him/her/it, then I'll say I will. If your OC has Mary-Sue tendencies, then I'll point that out too. I'll mostly focus on your characters, your literary language, and of course - the story. Especially the story. What I expect from people is pretty high. So, I'll list them:
-First of all; don't forget that this is YOUR story. I will NOT be writing the story FOR you. I will however, help you with it if you're stuck with the plot, or whatever has blocked you from writing. Does that make sense?
-Second; no matter how good the story is, no matter how great you portrayed your characters: I will not edit fan fictions that have abbreviations like the ones used in chat, including 'how r u', 'me 2', 'omg', 'wtf', and etc. You can type in just a few characters more to complete the word, I'm sure.
-Thirdly; have fun writing. Outside of being a beta-reader, I'm really not that strict. Talk to me, I don't bite!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'll analyze your story thoroughly. Incorrect grammar, spelling, words that could be changed for more better ones... I'll do my best to find them. If your story is too cheesy, or too cliche, or your characters are too perfect, I'll tell you (as stated above). I'm pretty good at stories, and making them more original, but that's your job, so I'll leave you little hints. I'll also look for incorrect tense use - as in somehow swapping from present tense to past.
It's my job as a beta-reader to make you a better writer, so I'll try my best to make you improve your skills.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
It's fun to help other authors with their works - but because of my schedule, I'm pretty busy. I'll be on whenever I can. However, everyone makes mistakes. It's what makes us human. So don't go on a rage if I miss out on a word or two. It's still your story, so read it, before uploading it. I'll be leaving little messages on what you could improve/what I liked/what I disliked as well, so make sure to check it out after it's finished.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance stories and comedic ones. And OC stories. I'll take any really, but I prefer these types of fan fictions the best.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not exactly, but the ones that aren't stated in my preferences below are ones I'd rather not do, since I'm not familiar with them. There's only a select few that I am familiar with, such as Naruto and Bleach, that I didn't put on the list. You can find another author to do those stories, because to be honest, I'm not exactly in love with those series -too many fillers bleh-.
