Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! I am SkinOfInk, pretty new to this site, but I love to read and write, and I'd love to help anyone who needs a Beta reader! I'm pretty sure I can get a story back to anyone in two to three days, and if something comes up, I'll tell you through PM's, before or after the fact. I think I can be a little serious, so I'd appreciate stories from authors who want them to be the best they can be.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I consider myself to be pretty good with flow, diction, and choice of words. I'm good with spelling, and okay with grammar. If something sounds off, I'll tell you, along with odd elements in your story, like timing or characterization.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
With providing ideas for people, I can be sporadic. Usually it happens when I'm inspired, so you shouldn't rely on me overly much for your next big chapter idea. Also, as mentioned above, I'm only okay with grammar. I go with what sounds right, as some choices could be made based on style. I'll tell you if it makes no sense, but I'm no grammar Nazi. Also, I think I can be a bit picky, so tell me if I should back off, I won't take offense.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer serious authors, with stories they want to improve on. That doesn't mean I won't take drabbles or one shots, I just won't check them for only spelling and grammar. I like multi chapter stories, and cannon pairings, but I'll take the opposite. Just don't expect me to be overly enthusiastic about the latest Zutara or Percy/Artemis.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really don't want to read slash, or yaoi, or whatever it's called. I have no experience in that...genre, so it's better you find someone else for that. Heavy sex scenes are a no. Also, with fandoms I don't know, I'd rather not take them, just because I'm not familiar with the characters and such. Looking it up on Google is not the same thing as being a part of it. What's listed below is what I do.
