Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy reading, but I also can be a bit critical if I don't like something. I tend to read through and pick up on spelling, grammar, word choice, etc. I'm not perfect and will miss stuff too though. So I'm willing to read for people, but hopefully you don't take offence to what I say. If you don't agree with me I want you to argue with me. If there's something you like that I didn't then speak up and tell me. I don't mind. I can help re-write bits if you aren't satisfied with them. If English isn't your first language, or you have problems with sentence structure, spelling, grammar, etc. I'd be happy to help. I know a little French should you want the occasional phrase I can probably tell if it's right or not at all. Even if what you want edited isn't one of the ones I've got listed feel free to drop me a line and ask if I'll beta it anyways. I'll reply as soon as I can, but I tend to not check PMs every day, most days but not every.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, grammar, sentence structure, re-writing small portions. I can also help with ideas if you get stuck.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not always perfect. I mean, no human really is. I will sometimes miss a mistake, or make my own. I may not completely understand what you're trying to convey, but I'll try to understand and talk to you. I'm not always online, so no guarantee I'll have it done in less than 24-48 hours. Although if you can predict how long it'll take to write a chapter and tell me when to expect it I should be able to get it back to you quickly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, I prefer stories based of of ones I know, or have read, watched, etc. I've read a fair amount of books and manga, and seen some anime here and there. I have a bit longer list on my profile of books I like, I'm familiar with most Ghibli movies. I don't have a list of everything I know, but ask me and I'll let you know, I know A LOT of different stories, games, cartoons, anime/manga, etc. I'm open to most stories. I have the easiest time with pairings of characters that originally happen in the story. It's just the most natural to me. But I'm willing to try new things. Just ask, and I'll let you know if I know it or not.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not exactly a fan of horror or mystery, but if it's tastefully done I don't mind so much. It's a good idea to give me a sample, like a chapter, to see if I'll be willing to read it. I don't love murder mysteries, they often creep me out a bit. But hey a challenge never hurt anyone!
