β : Alikia is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am very much about grammar and sentence structure. A writer can have a brilliant idea for a story but when sentences are 'all over the place', a reader can and will lose interest quickly. I am unfortunately guilty of this. As a Beta, I aim to provide FanFic authors with help that they can use to raise their standards of writing.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
When I first started writing, I described everything that happened in my stories. Step by step I went through each chapter without realising how boring I was sounding. Thanks to suggestions from other writers and industry professionals, I attended classes and read books about what publishers look for. It has helped me a great deal and I want to be able to help other writers reach their highest /
Please be aware that I am very 'nit picky' when I am checking a story, essay or letter for grammatical correctness. My sisters (one older & one younger) still send me their university assignments for me to check;) I am from Australia and I am aware that some grammar from other countries, like America is different and I do my very best to take that into consideration.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I admit i do have some troubles with tenses (past,present,future) but I am continually working to raise the bar in this area. With some stories I also have the tendency to rearrange paragraphs and story lines to have them make more sense to me. This does not always make sense to others. I am happy for anyone wanting me to check their work to request that I don't do that. Everyone has their own perceptions of how a piece of writing should be written.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I absolutely love adventure stories as well as stories based on sci fi and fantasy. TV shows such as Stargate, Grimm, Arrow, Warehouse 13 and supernatural are high on my 'like' list but I am happy to check out any others.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Unfortunately I am not a huge fan of Anime and would have no idea on how these particular stories would need to be checked. I also do not really enjoy anything with large amounts of sexual content.
