Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm good with offering ideas to the writer. I, by no means, change the story or anything, but I will give advices to the writer. I also will change how the sentence is phrased or the paragraph is written if I don't find it flowing very fluidly. I work pretty diligently and will have the chapter done in just couple days from the day I receive the chapter as long as my school doesn't have a sudden influx of homework. I get pretty detailed and am not fond of any rushed styles. That means that if I see a certain plot getting too rushed, I will rewrite it so that it spaces out evenly and has more fluidity to it. Last but not least, I'm willing to chat with the author through my gmail (or just send emails back and forth) to discuss how to develop the plot or what aspects one should delve into.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with making the words flow, or so others tell me. I also can catch even the minute mistakes, ranging from simple punctuation marks to those huge blatant mistakes. In addition, I have pretty extensive vocabulary so I can replace some of the weaker words with more appropriate words. I'm very detailed in my writings and usually grammatically correct.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good with stories that I have no background information. In those cases, I can do the basic check and still make the story flow, but I won't be able to give those feedbacks on the general of the story (for example, I can tell you that certain grammar is off but I can't give you a feedback about the characters themselves). Some of the mangas that I'm well acquainted with are Naruto, 07-Ghost, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. As for books, I read tons and I probably read whatever book that you are writing on. If not, I can always go and check out the book from the public library nearby.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not too picky about types of stories but I do like a lot of angsts as most of my stories I've written are angsty. I also like the genres adventure, hurt & comfort, friendship, drama, and family as well. I also like to read stories that has Naruto, Kakashi, Shikamaru, or Itachi as the main character. I'm fine with Romance as long as it's not getting too slutty.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would rather not betaread any yaoi, yuri, or any kind of character bashings. I'm particularly uncool with those ridiculous character bashings. I'm also not particularly fond of romance (at least the ones that go overboard). I also don't want to beta stories that overly uses cuss words (like having a cuss word in every sentence) or are overloaded with sex.
