Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Please do know your basic grammar rules and mechanics. I beta read pretty fast. If it's a word document, then I'll do the comment functions and it'll only take me less than a day. If you want more than just simple comments, I'll print it out, scan it and give it to you after the corrections. This usually takes me a day or two. I can do things quicker if you have the basics down. Please submit one chapter at a time and maybe a break between the chapters? I will check over the mechanics and whatnot first and then get on to sentence structures and the difficult things. Please keep in mind that this is not my life thing so I might not be on everyday. Every document sent must be a word document (preferably word 2007) to my email. Message me if there is a problem. Thanks you :D
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can take note of plot structures, details, and mechanics. If there is a really wordy sentence, I can help. I like reading the story also for the plot and I can tell you if something is missing or doesn't feel right. Now you can post a story without having awkward parts in it (though I'm sure you can write pretty well already). I can also identify when a character is weak or strong and where you need to improve. Also, if you are competitive, I will point out how yours might be compared to others in Fanfiction.net but if not, then that's okay. Then there is also syntax, the wording of your sentences, and how well it flows. And grammar that most people don't catch because a native speaker wouldn't recognize it at first hand but I think I'm trained enough to do so :D
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Not everyone is perfect. There are even some mistakes I make in my stories. Even I have a friend who checks my stories but I will try my best. My only weakness is that I won't be able to catch your mistake -.- I apologize now for the future.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to read about mangas I've read before. Shonenai or shojoai might be acceptable. I have read Kuroshitsuji, FMA, Naruto, Fairy Tail, Bleach and others I'm too lazy to name. You can ask me. Books are fine, I'll just look up a summary for that book if I've never read it before. Crossovers are a maybe. Mature and gore is fine. Thanks!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No yuri or yaoi. Please, don't have a mary-sue or marty-stu or whatever it's called for boys. OOCs are not acceptable unless they kind of make sense. No random pairings, like, REALLY RANDOM pairings. Movies are not acceptable. That's it ^^
