|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I write I plan major events and what each chapter will contain. That way you always have some directions what to write if you get a writers block. But if that isn't how you work than that is fine as well of course!
If you will pick me as your beta I will most likely mark the mistakes and let you edit them yourself instead of changing it up by myself. That way you get to see the wrong and edit it. I may also suggest a better way of putting sentences or such even if they aren't technically wrong.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at grammar and spelling. English isn't my first language so I'm not perfect but who is? I have some experience with writing fanfiction as well as reading a lot so I know what is the most common way of writing is. I can me a bit of a nazi when it comes to paragraphs and grammar stuff but it only makes your writing stronger. I was so bad at this a few ago but a beta helps so much.
I'm good at coming up with ideas and brainstorming so if you need someone who can provide ideas and suggestions I can definitely help you as well.
I'm also pretty good with conversations. What makes a good dialogue, how things sound natural and realistic and so on. Also reactions to events I'm fairly good at making realistic.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm bad at writing elaborate descriptions. How to describe a moment, clothing, nature what ever it may be. It is definitely where I'm lacking, no doubt. I guess I've gotten a bit better with experience but I'm still no where near good. So if you want someone who can describe moments for you, I'm not the beta for.
I'm not a genuis when it comes to character developement. I wish I was. It's something I'd like to be better at.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Personally, I'm a fan of OC's in stories. You know the shy, kind type. However I am strongly against Mary-Sue characters. Those who have the perfect personality, perfect looks and perfect grades. There is no such thing as perfect so show some flaws. It only makes a character more likable and readers can find themselves in your OC. Though, I would like to say that sometimes characters get accused of being Mary-Sue when they aren't. I also love romance and some ups and downs. It's boring to see a story where nothing.
Also, I can be really picky with details so if you're going to make a story I prefer if you know the details and make sure it's correct according to facts, or is open to researching. For example in twilight. People tend to change the surname of Paul Lahote and Jared Cameron, please know the names of the characters you write about. At least take the time to find out if they have a given surname before you decide to write about them. Another example is a story that I lost. It was in the Harry Potter universe and I took the time to research the schedule for that year to make sure it's correct according to the books. I like when details are canon and correct since the small things bother me like nothing else.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not into Yaoi. Sorry, it's just not my thing. Fem slash (or Yuri) I'm okay with though. I don't do male pregnancy or anything along those lines.
If you've got an OC that is a massive bitch (main character), please take it somewhere else, I'm scarred from childhood and can't take it.
If a story is very AU it can get too much for me. For example if you turn everybody to cats or so. If you are unsure whether your story is too AU, feel free to ask anyway :)
Also, you know those stories where an OC has travelled from our world into the twilight universe or where ever it may be, it is not my thing. So if that is a part of your story, it's not for me. Sorry. Same goes for self-insert and you just put yourself in there (not the same thing as taking inspiration from yourself, I think most of us do!). Also reader-stories like y/n etc. isn't my thing.
