Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love reading people's stories, and unlike my own updating abilities, I will do my best to read and beta promptly. I expect well put together stories, or at least stories that have thought put into them, some actual direction. Not words vomited on a page that supposedly revolve around some characters of a fandom. We've all read those stories on FF that you just can't finish because it's all over the place and just doesn't make any sense, and we all hate them. If you know your story is like that, tell me and I'll do everything I can to sort it out and turn it around. As for your grammar and punctuation and spelling, I'm great at spotting any of those mistakes, so I don't care how bad it is.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Everything involved with grammar, punctuation, and spelling. It's my strong suit, so if that's your issue, I'm your beta! You can also trust me to give you honest answers. If you ask me what I think of a particular scene, or how something is written, I will tell you if I don't like it, and I'll tell you if I do.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I get frustrated with stories that don't make sense. There are people on here that post their stories thinking they are great when they actually suck, and they don't get a beta or anything... I will not be annoyed if you send me a story like that, because as a beta, I WILL FIX IT!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer beta-ing new stories. When I start in the middle of a story, it makes it really hard for me to get a handle on it, so although there are exceptions, I'd rather you request my beta work on a story that's just getting started.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will beta pretty much anything. The one thing I will say is while there are a lot of AU stories out there that are near and dear to my heart, there is a difference between being an AU story and being just plain stupid. I don't like stupid. I end up reading the first paragraph, scoffing, and closing out before I even finish the chapter. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good AU story. But when it comes to writing fanfiction, there are quite a few things that if you're gonna do them, you have to do them right. AU is one of them.
