|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am new to doing this for strangers, but I have been reading, editing, and suggesting corrections for my friends since we came out of the book closet. Though a lot of my fanfictions are entirely cracked out, that is not my writing favorite writing style. My original stories are very angsty, giving me some experience with that tone and genre. br /br /
br /br /
I tend to leave plot choices and OOCness alone, as it is not my place to judge those items. Diction and things of that ilk are fair game to me. I reserve the right to correct a missused and/or misspelled word. Grammar is in that category as well. There is a difference between 'their', 'there', and 'they're'. Please do not post anything with errors like that. It makes the reader scoff and turn away. br /br /

I will Beta things so long as I know the characters, but know that what I post on here isn't my tea. Anyone who uses my services HAVE to know, accept, and expect, that any advice I may give is my oppinion, and doesn't have to be taken. I like getting along with people, so expect to be friendly and have friendliness shown towards you.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
o.0 I am a decent judge of word-flow and catching typos in spelling and some puncuational errors. I have a good vocabulary and can come up with awesome*in my oppinion*alternative spellings for names. Verb tenses are another thing that I excel at fixing.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Commas. I hate the lil suckers. And semi-colons. They are the evilest of all evil but I can get help from my handy-dandy sister who is a commakaze. Other than that, my grammar is okay.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really love fantasy worlds, comedy, and angst, but I will beta just about anything. NO SHOUJO or YURI.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not very good at true poems. Poetic prose I can do. Poetry I cannot. Sorry. DX I'm also not a big fan of yuri. Or shojo ai. They have to be extremely well thought out before I will even consider beta'ing it. I have no problems with it, I just don't have many experience with that.
