|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta not only do I clear up spellings and punctuation (light polishing), but I add and remove sentences and going more in-depth with the dialogue rather than just fixing a couple of typos. I also help out create plot lines and improve plots (rising and falling action) and work highly with whomever I'm beta-ing about character development (antagonist, protagonist, character traits, etc...). With that said, even though I'm willing to go in depth with the writing and change it, be sure to tell me my limits. br /
When working with your product, I will bold the things that I change and attempt to give a description of a)What I did to improve the chapter, b) Your common mistakes (spellings, punctuation, dialogue, etc...) so YOU can improve too, and c) Whatever extra stuff I decided to do. br /
Also, please don't type 'lyk dis' in all your stories or purposely leave out punctuation just because I'm proof-reading it - I know this will come off as harsh, but it wastes my time. If there is something you don't know how to spell, leave it with the red squigglies underneath it and I'll read it over and check it (same goes for the green lines) - SPELL CHECKER IS NOT YOUR FRIEND! Unless you're willing to use the dictionary. br /
Even if you don't need a beta, feel free to email me if you need help in character and plot development... I will give you some tips and help you polish it off. br /
REMEMBER: You should have a plot *before* you start your story.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I take pride in saying that I'm good at helping create plot lines and adding some depth to characters. I'm also good at catching spellings and most punctuation.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Time. I'm in school right now so it's hard for me to juggle beta-ing and homework/studying/life. br /
I'm also human, so I might miss one or two things. I make an honest effort to return your work to you in immaculate shape, but mistakes happen occasionally. If that's so, I'm sorry ahead of time. Though, I don't make a habit of messing up.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
- Something with plot /
- Adventure, kick ass, touch or romancebr /
- Humor is always nicebr /
- One-shots are fun.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Don't come to me saying that you want me to beta a book chapter by chapter with no distinct plot only to quit halfway through. br /
- No smut fests, please. Having sex constantly is not a plotline. br /
- Love triangles make me want to kick puppies (they're okay for about five chapters, after that choose your favorite of the two and kill the other)br /
- Don't give me a submissive, weak, indecisive girl (NO, I do not have a problem with Twilight in general, YES, I do have a problem with Bella)br /
- Don't give me erotica (Again - sex is not a plot line)
