Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a very opinionated person and I'm not afraid to make SUGESTIONS where I feel nessicary, but I am also a writer too and fully understand why you want to keep something the way it is. I won't physically change anything on the document I'll just highlight it unless its changing your to you're. This is your's and only your's. I'll let you know what I know and feel from the peice and can help you create the desired effect you want your readers to feel. I can also tell you if your foreshadowing is to thick or to subtle. I can either be a partner in your story or a tool for you to use (mind OUT of the gutters), I just want to help improve your writing. The saying coming to my mind is, you can catch a man a fish and he'll eat for a day or you can teach him to fish and he eat for a lifetime.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
First of all honesty. If I get an absolute peice of crap, I wont tell you its a piece of crap but I'll defanatly offer segestions to make it better. I can easily spot plot holes and bad foreshadowing, I can help you make it more subtle. I'm not too too bad a grammer mostly just like stuff that doesn't make a whole lot of sence when you read it the first time other than that it really doesn't matter (do YOU care if your semi colon is out of place?... I don't) If I'm familiar with the story I can help you make it more ralalistic (ex. Hermione fom Harry Potter doesn't say "Like whatEVER, O M G I like, SO don't care".) Character interaction ect. Basically things that make the story flow nicer and I can make your writing level go up a bit.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a hard time with spelling and being firm on an idea, I'm kind of a push over. If I see something that REALLY needs to be changed, like having... family gut pop up in a Harry potter fic for NO reason (seen it happen, not pretty) and you don't change it they first couple times I tell you, chances are it'll stay up untill you get a nasty comment...
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Naturally I like things I'm familiar with. Perferably books, I don't watch that much tv. I'm going to go through EVERYTHING on this website and put below everything I'm familiar with so it'll be long... I like Harry Potter, Twilight, Grey's Anatomy, Dexter, Mortal Instruments, Private,basically any book you can buy at chapters, I own and read 7 or 8 times... literally 100s of books in my room more in my basement and garage. We have insurance haha
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
the only things I don't do are animé and aliens just not my thing, sorry little green dudes... I'll do anything else
