|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader I'm much like I am as a writer. I'm versatile and love the quirky things. Yaoi will always be my favorite thing to read or write. I'm opinionated and I'm not afraid to tell you my opinion of your work. I also give a lot of praise because I believe that as a writer you deserve both my up-most support and praise, but also my own unbiased and unaltered opinion of your work and the criticism. I'm going to work hard to help you in every way I possibly can. And I will do as much as I can to make sure everything goes smoothly, but this is a two way street. I expect you to work on the story and not just blow it off. I expect you to be hard working and care as much as I do if not more. I expect you to frequently give me updates and there is plenty of ways you can contact me for that. If you have writer's block I need you to tell me. If you're going through something and have to put it on hold tell me. I need to be well-informed in order to serve you properly. I expect we will talk a lot because if we don't have a good relationship this won't work. I don't mind if you have the story completely finished, have a chapter, a sentence, or a word, as long as you have something we can go off from I will try and work with you. As for how I beta I tailor it to the person I'm betaing for to better serve the both of us. I don't believe in just one uniform way to beta because everyone is different and things that work for one person doesn't always work for another. We'll work out how when we talk. I'm usually available, but if I'm not then I will inform you of it. I am still going to school so you'll have to bear with me during the day. There's a chance that I may be able to work on it during school if I print it out or something, but for the most part from 4 in the afternoon to 7 in the morning I'll be available. True while I will be asleep part of the time I usually wake up at five in the morning. I'm in central time so you can track it properly. And on the weekends it just depends. I am open to new categories and fandoms. Don't cross me off the list because I haven't read it or watched it. If you really want me to be your beta then I will read/watch/research it so I can. Never hesitate to ask me anything. I'm always just a PM away. And remember I don't bite. I'm not some bitch. I'm a very nice person so really PM if you have any questions at all or if you want me to beta for you. I hope you choose me, but if not good luck!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Plot Development- I'm extremely good at finding ways to tweak the plot or enhance it. I'm not going to lay it all out for you, but if you're particularly stuck or don't know what should go where, I'm your girl. Characterization- I'm good about keeping characters in character for those of you who have problems with that. Flow- I'm good with the flow of the story itself. Description & Wording- I'm very good at description, again I won't write it for you, but if you struggle with description of things or where to put it and how much I can help. As for wording I've got a diverse vocabulary and I'm good with finding words that are a bit more exotic and enchanting. Being A Wall- I'm good at letting people bounce their ideas off of. Some people need that and I'm very good at helping you to decide which to purse and which to drop or develop. Original Characters- I'm rather good at balancing them out and making them realistic also helping to develop them in every way because no one likes Mary-sue's.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar & Spelling- I'm not the worst with grammar and spelling, but I'm not the best either. I'd say I'm fairly good, but I don't always catch everything.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, Comedies, Dramas, Hurt/Comfort, and Angst are the ones that I tend to be very good with and enjoy. But honestly I'll do basically anything. I tend to stick more with the Anime/Manga realm, but I can go into Cartoons, TV Shows, and Movies. I wouldn't mind doing so either. I'm comfortable with Original Characters, yaoi, yuri, and mature writing. Pretty much anything like I said.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fan-fictions for gaming. I fail so epically at games that I couldn't help you even if I wanted to. Other than that the western genre. I just can't write for that. As for everything else bring it on.
