Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been writing fanfiction for over a decade, mostly about Twilight, and am an active reader in most fandoms I enjoy. Aside from the ones already marked on my profile, I tend to read at least one or two fanfics from every piece of media I consume, so there is a chance I'm already familiar with your fandom, just not an expert! I can help you with grammar, but I focus more on the overarching story/plot and help to fill in any plot holes/inconsistencies. I also gravitate towards characters and may offer advice on how to flesh them out more/make them more in-character/etc. I typically like to read at least one published work first to get a feel of your writing before editing! I can either help you edit over e-mail or shared on Google Drive.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can help with your dialogue and make sure it flows naturally and matches your character's "voice." I can also work with you on your character development, setting, and attention to detail.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't know why, but I'm really bad at keeping the same tense throughout an entire work (past, present, whatever). I can also spend a LONG time antagonizing over word choice and sentence structure lol!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories with angst, romance, hurt/comfort, and some humor. I usually read Twilight stories based on the La Push wolves, but am open to reading fanfics about vampires too (though I'm not very knowledgable of the other covens). Other than that, I can beta read just about anything for you!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta anything that has gratuitous rape, sexual or physical abuse, or anything, well, gross (that DOESN'T add anything to the story). I'm a tax-paying adult and have read some Shit TM but if it comes without warning, I can be turned off from reading. Most fanfics don't do this without warning, but if you're uncertain, you can always PM me and I'll let you know! Again, I'm pretty open about anything, and as long as it adds to the story, I can help with just about anything.
