|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to beta-ing and I'm hoping I will learn something from this experience. My style of betareading is more in third person, rather than first. The only expectations I have from anyone is to cooperate with me since it is my first time doing this.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
One thing I am good at is spelling. I will go to boundless lengths to find out how to spell a word. I can't stand it when I can't spell a word. Another thing is the whole concept of 'You're, Your, There, Their, They're.' Many people mess up on these and I can always notice them right off the bat. I'm usually pretty quick at writing because of how fast I type. I'm also good at balancing out the story. For example, if you're creating a crossover, you have to balance both types of characters out and make sure you have the right personality. I guess another thing I can be good at is detail. I tend to create humor too. Honestly, sometimes it's hard for me to create a funny scene but when people review, they tell me it's hilarious and they couldn't stop laughing. So I guess I'm naturally funny or something, not bragging at all! Another strength I have is using commas. Sentences in stories tend to run off when they shouldn't. Not to mention apostrophes. I can get a lot of apostrophes right like 'Don't, Shouldn't, Wouldn't, Couldn't, Would've, I'd, I'll. Mostly, I'm good at third person POV and grammar.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When I write a story, I sometimes rush so that I could hurry and get to the point, a really bad habit of mine if you ask me. I guess another thing is that I sometimes overuse a word in the same story. I also tend to scramble words together. Mostly, my only problem is rushing whenever action is going on because it seems fast in my own mind. I guess that's it for that though.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I guess I would prefer stories that are in the 3rd POV then in 1st. I've done a 1st POV, and I'm not too shabby with it. All the anime I've ever read/watched are on my profile if you want to know which categories I'm into. I prefer anime over books and movies. Of course, I can do games too. And I don't mind Yaoi/Yuri (BoyxBoy GirlxGirl) or any of that sort at all. It won't prevent me from working hard to help you. I don't mind extra OC's either.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Twilight is a big no-go. Another no-go is Character Death...well it actually depends on who's dying. I hate it when my favorite character dies in a fiction I'm reading. I would most likely go with anything though. Another is Homophobic. I can't do that. If there is an homophobia in a story, I WILL NOT work with you...unless it's only temporary.
