|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I offer advice while beta-ing. I expect people to warn me if anything is violent or graphic. I want to know if English is their first language or not, because that really helps. If it's not someone's first language I will be a little bit easier on them when I am fixing things for them. I am a bit tough on people that I have high expectations for, but only when they need a good scolding or talking to (which hasn't ever happened yet hahaha). I'm very relaxed. I don't expect people to keep in contact with me but I do appreicate a heads up on FF if they send me a chapter to beta. Other than that go crazy people :)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at making stories flow correctly and at pin pointing plot problems and suggesting ways to correct them. If someone seems out of character but they are needed to react a certain way for the story I usually am good enough at suggesting to writers what can be done to be fixed about that. I am decent at spelling and fixing simple mistakes that are over looked.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a whole I think I'm a decent author. I've been getting better at catching grammer mistakes but I still don't always catch them all. Once I see it written that way I can't think of a different way to put it. I am trying to work on that. That's my weakness as a writer. As a beta my greatest weakness would have to be that I think I over suggest things. It might be a bit offensive to people to see how much I change in their work when I send it back. No one has said anything yet but if I was cocky it would upset me.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer Romance... Yeah I know I'm a sap. I'll read anything but Horror, it just either turns out too gory in my opinion or it doesn't flow right.
I like One Piece, Harry Potter, and others. It doesn't really matter what fandom it is as long as it makes sense.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would rather not read any stories that are girl on girl or guy on guy sexually. If it's a simple romance story where it's cute but it doesn't go into a whole graphic sex scene I would beta it. So bascially K for that stuff and no higher. I don't trust how some of you rate your stories. ;P. Also I'm regretful that I haven't mentioned this earlier but I DO NOT accept Own Character (OC) stories (unless very well thought out).
