Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have always been obsessed with reading and story making. So when I found this sight it was just pure awesomeness. So far it has been fairly easy for me to find small mistakes in writing. Misspelled words or incorrect grammar. I love creating ideas for stories. I write too, but my favorite part is just getting the ideas and seeing how far I can manipulate them to get an unexpected result. br /

I am generally very good with getting back to people online; I very rarely am not on my laptop at least once a day. But please not that I am a full-time student so my any school work takes priority in my work life. Shouldn't be too much of an issue though.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Nitpicking (especially when it comes to spelling and grammar), bouncing ideas around, getting direction for where a story is to go, getting things done in a fairly timely manner (assuming life doesn't hate me at the moment).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Here some things I have realized so far in my Beta-ing work: I cannot work with poetry. There is little lost love between myself and poetry so I probably would not be the best person to try and correct it. I also will not do all the work for you guys. I don't mean that I won't beta for you, just that I expect to beta work that does at least look like it hasn't been written by a kindergartener. Please capitalize, use punctuation, and quotations in a semi-correct manner. I really don't want to have to correct simple things like that. There are free autocorrect systems online, please use them. Little red squiggly lines have saved my lifebr /

Last note, I can't work Friday night through Saturday night. That really shouldn't affect my work rate, but it would be good to keep in mind that if I ever get a message Friday night or Saturday day, then I won't actually see it until Saturday night.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
-if I know the fandom well then I can beta for it. Though if all your looking for is someone for grammar and spelling issues then I suppose it doesn't matter if I know the fandoms br /

I don't mind doing stories with smut, lemon, lime, yaoi, etc., but they can't be the main point of the story. If it contributes to the overall plot and/or character development then fine, I don't mind that.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories

-I don't particularly like OCs, or self-inserts. Why? Mainly because I find very few that are well written. Using an OC/insert is a very tricky business and can be very hard to pull off well. I also tend to overly critical about them. But if you can convince me to like one (and it has been done before), then major props to you! br /

-Also I have the same deal with genderbending. I don't like it, and almost never read fics like that. I don't find anything wrong with it, it's just that in general I'm too attached to characters in their canon gender. But hey, I'm (nearly) always willing to take a shot at something, so don't be too hesitant about this one.
