|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a Beta, I am here to help not take over. As someone who has looked for Betas before, I understand that this is a concern.
I like to believe that I am friendly. If you have any issues, I am always willing to listen and do my best to help out. All advice is given as just that; advice. If you take it or not is your own choice. What advice I do give is from the perspective of an avid reader and a fellow fanfic writer.
I feel capable to help in most aspects of a story, from OC creation to general spelling checks. You don’t need to feel obliged to work with me continuously either. If you just need someone to read over this one chapter to check how it flows and then never speak to them again, I would be more than happy to help out.
I am rather blunt with how I put things a lot of the time, especially when stressed for time. My critique, if asked for, is honest and some may find this rude. However, I do try my best to point out exact issues and always offer solutions.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
While I am able to assist in most aspects of a fictional work, my strongest abilities are anything character based, world creation, and plot.
I have quite a few years of RP(Role Play) experience I draw from, most of which I was GM(Game Master). If you have an OC centric story and want to flesh out some characters, I have a plethora of suggestions. Or maybe you’ve created an AU that doesn’t quite feel right, I can help pointing out what aspects may be missing. Want to create some different way to use magic than the typical “mana” or “chakra”? Yep, even that.
Lastly, plot. Say you have built this whole beautiful world and fantastic characters, but don’t know where to start, you most likely just need a nudge in the right direction. Or any direction, perhaps. Supposedly you have a start and an end, but the middle keeps escaping your mind before you can write it down. Or else you’re so close to finishing you can taste it, but that last chapter evades you. Yes, this is your one stop shop for all your plot needs and purposes. And no, I don’t know why I became an infomercial, but I’m going with it.
I also do basic grammar and spelling checks as I go along, or if requested.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
While this is not that much of a weakness per say, I am based in South Africa. This means I use UK English and live in a similar time zone to them (2GMT so 2 hours ahead of England). Please do take this into account when I haven’t replied because it might be 2AM for me.
When doing chapter checks for errors, I do take my time. If you need rushed spelling checkers, I am not for you. Plain and true. I also have writing (and in turn Beta reading) as a hobby. I do work and study and all those wonderful things, so I am not the fastest thing in the land. I will have to slot your request in between the responsibilities I already have.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t a sucker for a good romance story. Anything fantasy at all please. I prefer longer form stories so there is actually space for plot. If it’s just for a spelling check, one shots are welcomed.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm chilled with pretty much anything and everything. Genre wise, scifi and horror I'm not comfortable as I don't have any experience. Historical based on real events I will need to do hectic research beforehand.
