Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am currently a student of English who takes great enjoyment from writing my own stories, reading others, and helping people to make their writing better. English is my first and only language, and I have dedicated my mind to it since I was two. In regards to my betareading style, I can go through as many drafts of your chapters as you find necessary and I am usually pretty fast sending edited chapters back. However this may vary subject to how many stories I am Beta'ing at one time, and how much time I have on my hands. My expectations of anyone who wishes to acquire my services are that they make a serious attempt at writing. That doesn't mean that they send me a chapter every night, just that they put some thought into their writing. Also, as a betareader, I am required to give constructive criticism (I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't). I would hope that no-one completely ignores me if I repeat a sentiment for many chapters - maybe that a certain line seems OC etc. I am not a particularly harsh person, even when being constructive and would appreciate any writer who uses me as a betareader listening to any points I might make. Most of all, I want the people I betaread for to have fun writing their stories! After all, thats what fanfiction's all about! :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good at characterisation and shaping plot lines. I excel at sentence structuring, and am pretty good at spelling and grammar. Some say I'm a living, breathing thesaurus and I can easily find and substitute words if you're finding you overuse several.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Although I am good at most things, sometimes small details or inconsequential mistakes will slip through - especially if the story's a good one and I get caught up in reading it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love a good romance, although fantasy, adventure/action, and humor are also areas I am more than willing to dabble in.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Quite frankly I'd rather not beta for slash stories or mpreg, thanks :)
