Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello there, my name is Shelby and I go by Bonkers4Reid here on fanfiction. I'm pretty down to earth and writing is just a hobby for me. I write for fun/relaxation/stress relief. I'm (unfortunately) known for long hiatuses between updates to my multi-chapter fics. If you chose me to be your beta you won't have to worry about that though. In my day to day life I always put the concerns of others way above myself. If you want to know more about me, please don't hesitate to send me a P.M. I'll even let you "interview" me to see if I'm a good fit for your writing style!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a self-proclaimed grammar nazi. I'm also very particular about the words that I chose for my fics, I'll spend a lot of time trying to find a better-sounding synonym. I like to think that I have a good sense of characterization for my favorite fandoms, so I'm not afraid to tell you if I feel that you're not representing a character the right way. (not that there really is a RIGHT WAY, since this is fanfiction and everyone has their own interpretations, but I think you get what I mean.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best speller, but spellcheck is my best friend!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd love to help someone who is working on their very first fic, that would be a lot of fun! I'm very open in regards to what I'll read, so I'll help anyone who needs it. I like romance, hurt/comfort, family, and friendship fics the most. I'm also into "case fics" (Criminal Minds, Sherlock Holmes, ect) where a crime or mystery must be solved.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't read much slash, but don't shy away from me if you need help with a slash fic. I'm also not interested in beta-ing something that is really established, like "I think I want someone to beta my story... TWENTY chapters in!" I suck at poetry, so trust me, you don't want me beta-ing your poems!
