Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a betareader, I am friendly and nice. I will do my best to deliver my advice as nicely as possible, but I will always speak my mind. I have a pretty open online schedule so you can expect quick reviews and /

br /

When I read a chapter with the intention of reviewing, I read said chapter twice. The first read-through is to give me an idea as to the overall plot and the individual events. The second reading is when I focus on finding errors to correct or things to change to make the chapter /

br /

I expect anyone I beta for to be nice to me. Its only polite, after all. I also love helping others to become better writers, but I will not tolerate unjust rudeness. I can accept if you do not wish to take my advice, but do not be rude to me unless I am rude to you. br /

I have heard that some beta readers prefer to receive Word documents to correct and color code. Others prefer to review published chapters or review chapters through PM threads. I am open to all of it, as well as any other option that you are comfortable with.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think my greatest skill lies in proofreading and syntax. While I am not very good at figuring out the sentence types, I am proficient at finding and correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation errors. I am also getting better at figuring out what a character would or would not do.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When speaking in conversation, expect typos. I switch keyboards throughout the day, and I type too fast for my own good. most of the time, the typos are easy to figure out and have a pattern to them. But i will do my best to find them before i send the message. When writing, I have a hard time remaining in character. Which is odd because when I review i can tell if a character is not being accurately portrayed.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Essentially, I will beta anything that I have selected. Additionally, everything Disney or /

If your fanfic's series isn't listed, then please feel free to Pm me and ask.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If you want me to read the same work more than once, then I will not read horror. I am willing to review each chapter once, but no more than that. so if you want a quick one-time review, then let me know! if you want a long-term beta for this genre, then your outta /

br /

I also WILL NOT, under any circumstances, read explicit rape /

br /

Other than that, I have no problems. But, don't expect me to be a great mature scene writer. Im not. I do not write those scenes because I honestly just don't feel comfortable. I also have a hard time imagining same-sex couples having sex. So, if you want help, all I can offer you are some synonyms and pretty words to throw into the mix.
