Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been a beta for multiple people so one could say I have 'experience'. Over the course of hard work and determination to get better, these authors have evolved completely. It still baffles me sometimes! The feeling of helping someone to such an extent makes me fairly happy so feel free to hmu : ) I'm flexible with methods and modes of communication as well.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have knowledge in all subjects of writing. The main ones - which I not only excel in but perceive as main conflicts for authors - are grammar, spelling, description, characters and plot. To elaborate:

Description: Setting, physical reactions and descriptions, emotions, mental processes, etc. This also includes concepts such as 'Show Don't Tell' and how to write suspenseful scenes.

Characters: Development and creation. Characters make the story so I like to make sure the characters are always true to their form and are realistic. I help point out opportunities to further develop characters and also reference when there needs to be some display of their development along with other aspects.

Plot: I help make sure that plots are solid and reasonable. Whether it's chapter by chapter or update by update, I can help plan out plots and give advice from a non-biased view as to how to proceed or where the plot needs to be strengthened and so on.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My determination to help authors grow tends to either

A) Overwhelm the author

B) Exceed the author's determination to develop

So, basically, you should truly want to grow as a writer and have the determination and will to try hard and create results. No matter how many times I correct errors and tell you certain tips, it's all, inevitably, in your hands. However, no matter how poorly you perceive yourself, I will guarantee staying by your side to help you develop - especially if I can admire or even recognize your determination.

One major setback of mine is that I am fairly busy during the school year. I occasionally need reminders to make me remember that there's a chapter in my hands waiting to be betad. Sometimes, I'll have it back to you within a day; other times, it could be a week.

I don't know if this is necessarily a weakness, however I'm very serious about improving. I like to have constant contact with my kouhais and send them practices to help engrave concepts in their minds. With that said, I don't mind communicating via PM on FanFiction or email. Whatever works best for you!

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, Suspense, Action, Humor, Friendship/Family, Angst - anything really! As long as I can help others I don't care what genre it is.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Although I like occasionally reading it, I don't think I'd be much help developing poetry. Sorry!
