|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
It only took roughly 7 years of being part of this site and writing, but at long last I'm throwing my hat into the ring of extending my insight and experience to others in an 'official' capacity. As many can easily tell by browsing my profile, I have a fair selection of stories under my belt, and have many ideas left to go within my own.
My style would consist of a step by step analysis of whatever the author is willing to send me, covering spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence/paragraph structure, and if I am more than a bit invested in the fandoms I am more than easily able to help with character development and details. I will never be callous or cruel, but I will be honest when I say a part of a story is weak or lacking, as I will be equally ready to tell where a story's strengths lie. I expect to deal with mature authors that are looking for more than an added pat on the back, or heaven forbid someone to write for them, that I will not do, I will only suggest directions for you to write to add to a story, be it description or events that could/might need to be added.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am strong in both Spelling and grammar, sentence/paragraph structure, and story flow... and wherever I lack I am quick to pull up the glory of the internet to make up the difference. for the fandoms I am familiar/active with I can easily create or enhance features that could improve a story, in either length or breadth of scope.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
It may take a small bit of time for me to get thoroughly through a multi-chapter story. I read quite a bit, and have several stories that I write consistently (daily basis) So priority rungs are something of a juggling act. Make sure to give me time to work on your story before you need it, or the balance might get upset, and no one wants that...
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Most anything Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Warcraft or Star Wars related, I am willing to overlook other genres, but do not expect in depth assistance regarding character or plot, as I would be rather unfamiliar with those stories. Just ask me, as there are quite a few that I am more familiar with than others, but the listed at the top are my largest knowledge pools.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I have quite a specific list of deal breakers when it comes to what I will read, but primarily I will ABSOLUTELY NOT read anything with overly explicit sexual overtones: no Yaoi, Yuri, Mpreg or the like. If a fandom is something far enough out of my comfort or knowledge zones, I will not hesitate to decline any offers to Beta, but I will reasonably consider most concepts.
