|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, my name is TFPKPFanGirl, but you can call me LK. I've read and corrected writted works from family and friends and I just thought it'd be fun to get started as a beta reader.
!Before I go any further, I want to say one thing. I am not a person who sits down and writes or reads all day, I have a life, school, friends and extraciriculair stuff going on. If you ask me to be your betareader, I will tell you this, I'm not on here all the time, so please have patience with me. If you send me something, I will try to get it out to you A.S.A.P, but if something happens and I don't get your work back to you in a couple days or longer, PM me and I will get on it.!
Okay, now I can go on. Honestly, if you send me your work, I don't care how it comes in, all I care about is how it comes out. Everyone writes different and I know that there are a lot of first time writers here on (I was one, too). I want to help you make your story the best it can be.
I want to let you know that I might change some things, but in no way, shape or form do you have to accept it, everything (besides that of the essentials of grammar) will be an option for you to change.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've never really paid attention to the parts that I excell at. I know that I've gotten much better at writing and finally I'm opening up doors that were locked before, so I know that I can help you as well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Okay, my weakness, is I'm still learning myself. I'm not perfect, will never be perfect because to me, perfection in itself doesn't exist. I don't know every aspect of writing, but I know that slowly I'm getting to understand it all. As a betareader though, I will put myself to the highest standard to make your work good, because I believe that if you're working hard at it and ask me to help you, then I need to work just as hard.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love action/romance, don't know why, but it's my favorite. I honestly don't mind gore either, sometimes the more blood the better, especially in epic fighting scenes. Angst, family, hurt/comfort are also stories that I love to read and write as well.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Okay, I don't mind if there is fluff, I absolutely love fluff, but I will not correct stories that have explicit sex scenes. I allowed my rating prefrence to go up to M because I don't mind explicit gore that sends a person on edge, in fact it can sometimes make a fight or story more interesting. But it does not mean I'm accepting stories that contain explicit sex. I don't mind about something leading up to, or maybe a little bit touchy feely, or some full on flirting, but anything that would naturally make someone uncomfortable is a nono.
