β : Tarafae is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am not very experienced as a betareader but I am willing to lend a helping hand. I try to balance out with positive and negative, both good and bad. I will be honest and straightforward (and probably drool all over your work because you're all awesome writers.) I hope that whoever wants me to betaread for them will not /flame/ at me if I tell them something's wrong and will listen to what I tell them, even if my advice doesn't actually end up in the story. br /
And I will be loyal and try to betaread as promptly as possible.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have strong mechanics skills (grammar and spelling), although of course they're not perfect. Among my peers, I'm known as a nitpicky proofreader, so there's that. I will probably be able to pick out flaws in characterization as well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to write very long, comma-filled sentences, and some of the time that carries over into my proofreading. I do try to adapt to your personal writing style as much as possible, but sometimes I feel very tempted to make someone else's story into my own style, which is very bad of me. I am also pretty bad with imagery and description.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My preferred types of stories include action/adventure, fantasy, a bit of romance, and anything similar/in that category. Angst/sad stories will probably make me cry but I can deal with those too.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not very comfortable with yaoi/yuri, nor will I betaread romance-centralized fics. In my honest opinion there is more to life than sitting around kissing all day so I don't like fanfics that go on and on about romance and drama.
