β : Winter's Melancholy is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I haven't been a beta for very long on this site, but I have been editing stories for both family members and friends alike. I've had some experience with it, and I do have a little English teacher-esque feel to my editing style. Pretty happy go lucky as with regards to who I beta, as I'm new to this. Will beta-read with a cup of coffee at my side. *Not guaranteed* to keep me awake. I hope to be as cooperative and understanding as possible to anyone who may be willing to work with me. I may not be the most hardworking of beta-readers, but I'll try my level best.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I love working with stories that have easy flow. I'm a stickler for grammar, and will help you with punctuation and anything you might lack to a fault. Having said that, I have no issues with grammar and punctuation, and may even add a little vocabulary here and there, or edit sentence structures to ensure the story pans out like a beautiful stream on a clear spring morning. (I kid.) What I do will mostly be based on what you, as my writer or author, requires me to.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may not be able to be online at the best of times, (GMT plus 8), and I'm not very good at keeping deadlines. I'll work to finish work on time, though. My editing may come off as a little blunt, though I'm not really sure until I get to work.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd love to do romances, maybe humor stories, preferably from a anime/manga universe comfortable to me, say, like the Haruhi-verse, or the Evangelion Universe, to name two. I'll have some issues getting into character in angst-filled stories, but other genres would be fine if I have enough time to settle in, or if I have enough coffee, whichever comes first.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would try not to beta-read from an anime/manga that I am not familiar with, though I can be flexible. Getting into the story with knowledge of the characters normally makes it easier for me to write.
