|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, Alpaca-Queen here. I'm just interested in providing constructive feedback and helping people improve their stories before they put them out there on the Internet. I'm not the best with plot myself, so I'm more helpful in improving a person's word choice, writing style, grammar, sentence structure, etc. than with actually helping to improve plots or storylines. I expect that people who wish to use me as a beta-reader accept criticism well; I try not to be too harsh, but you are asking for my opinion and I may have some negative things to say. That's about it, so yoroshiku ne
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very skilled with grammar and spelling, and my vocabulary is relatively strong as well. Close-reading, like finding small typos or a place where the author accidentally skipped two spaces instead of one, is also one of my specialties.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am poor at forming plots, so, as mentioned before, I am not very much help in the plot or storyline department of writing, though I can attempt to be of service.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories in the anime/manga categories, especially those that I have seen/read (feel free to ask me about those).
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will beta shounen-ai stories, but not hardcore yaoi. I won't beta yuri (even non-hardcore), and I won't beta any lemons either. Minor gore is also okay, but I don't like excessively gory stories that tend to focus mainly on that aspect.
