Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My goal in becoming a beta is to help as many people as I can. Even if I can help you a little bit, I will be happy. The best thing to do with a story is to get an outsider's opinion on it so they can help you improve the story as a whole, and if you are considering me as your beta, then you deserve a high-five for taking that one extra /

br /

Remember, even if YOU think it is the best story in the world, not everyone will. Every single person has their own tastes and opinions, and I will help you to find a middle between you and them, so that even more people will like your /

br /

Another thing that I have found with my own stories it that while you are writing it you will probably be thinking of the general plot, so you might wright something that you would know as common knowledge because it is in your head (for instance a random person appears or describes something in you story that relates to the backstory, but you have not described your backstory yet), but when someone from the outside reads it (where the plot or backstory might not be common knowledge) the reference might not make sense in the story line, and this can lead to confusion and annoyance on the reader's part. br /

br /

If you ask me to be your beta all I ask of you is to have an open mind. If you come in thinking that your work is this amazing story that would make even the greatest authors bow down to you, then you will automatically think that a measly peasant like me would not be able to help you at all, no matter how helpful my suggestions really are. Every story, no matter how great, CAN be improved, and hopefully with my help, I can get you to that point of /

If you want to contact me directly or send me your story my email is: raven13 (replace the parentheses words with their respective symbols).

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at giving story ideas if you feel you are stuck in a rut. br /

br /

I am also relatively good at reading a section or sentience and discerning if it 'flows,' and how to make it sound better. br /

br /

I am very good at authenticating facts through research if you are unsure of a certain cannon idea, or if you want to link the other world up with ours /

br /

I am kind-of like a generalized 'jack of all trades' who can discern if the whole story 'fits' together both plot wise and /

br /

I am good at describing different emotions and how they would feel to the person having them, such as sadness and love.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a horrible speller, but if I do not know what it is i will consult others and/or a /

br /

I do not know the specific grammatical workings (like "this certain word is a gerund" or whatever), but I can tell if it sounds "right," and what sounds right usually is also grammatically right.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like any story with a good plot, which, in other-words, means any story! I have read a lot of books and fan-fiction, so nothing really phases me anymore, including lemon and/or violence.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything that is boring. I will try my hardest to read a boring part and get through it, but if is hard for me to get through (a person who has read many boring historical works) then you can almost guarantee nobody will sit there and try to read it when they could be reading another work that is less boring, no matter what happened before or after the boring part.
