Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I guess I'll start by introducing myself. My name is Kelsey, aka TheSnarkyAuthor. I'm your average run of the mill beta reader. I am good with grammar, spelling and vocabulary. I'm decent with characterizations and plot. If you ask me to beta for you, I will give you an honest opinion, however I will not be mean about it. I will not base that opinion on your grammar or spelling, I know that some people aren't as good as others in that area, but solely on the plot of your story. I will ask that you give me a general idea of where you want your story to go, and how long you want to take to get there. In other words are you trying to fit the plot into two chapters or twenty? This is important because if your trying to make the story a certain length and I don't know, I may not be able to catch or comment on all I need to in order to make the story the best it can. Changes I make will be in a different color. Probably not red, because I think that color is always associated with bad things. I'm not here to scare you, just to help. I will also put any of my comments about the story at the end. If you want me to make suggestions about the plot, or help you decide what to do next in the story, I will also put those comments at the bottom. I won't give advice if you don't ask. I don't want to overstep my job, and in some unknown way insult you. I'm here to help, and hopefully please. I'm on here almost everyday, so if you request me, chances are that I will respond fairly quickly. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, and vocabulary. I like to think I'm decent with characterizations and plot as well. I'm thankfully better at catching other people's errors than my own, however that does not mean that I will catch everything. I am human after all. Also since I'm on here all the time, I will more than likely get your story back to you quickly. :)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Probably dialogue. I really struggle with that sometimes. Also in-depth descriptions. I won't be able to describe the floor plan of where your character lives in a flowery and verbose way. I am however working on these. Gomen! :(
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Yaoi. I love yaoi. However I can do het pairings as well. Genre's I like to work with include romance, drama, angst, hurt/comfort, friendship and maybe supernatural. Depends on the story. There are some pairings that I prefer over others. For instance, for Prince of Tennis I love pretty much anyone with Ryoma. Except for Sakuno and Tomoka. I just can't do it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yuri. I just can't make myself do it. I also don't like stories with a lot of text talk. For instance, if your story is littered with lol's, ttyl's, and brb's galore then you might want to look somewhere else for you beta. I also prefer not to beta action simply because I can't write it to save my life. I do enjoy reading it though. Also I prefer no PWP's. If I'm gonna beta something I want there to be at least some type of plot. :)
