Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm mostly a grammatical and spelling sort of beta reader. I'll give you some suggestions on how to make something a little clearer, or better worded, but I'm not going to go mucking about with how you write. If you want me to give opinions on plot, or be a wall to bounce ideas off of, I'd be happy to if asked but my default is set at "not my place."
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good at catching typos or noticing that a word was used incorrectly. I'm also good at catching run-on sentences or paragraphs, and helping break them up.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a little prejudiced towards the content of fanfiction, and I'm very picky about the tropes that writers often use to fill out their stories, and think some of them are a little trite. It makes me very critical when asked an opinion about the plot or story line sometimes. I do my absolute best to not bash, but instead give constructive criticism. That being said, if you choose to ask me for those sort of opinions, keep that in mind. If you don't care, or don't want that part of my beta-ing, then all is well.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Aside from those listed in my "Do Not Want" category, I'm happy to read most anything. Some of my favorite subjects are: Pride and Prejudice, Phantom of the Opera, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, and anime. I'm not limited to those subjects though, so don't hesitate to ask. :)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Twilight. Unless it's completely about Alice and Jasper, I'm unlikely to be willing.
