Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Heya. So, I'm Ashlynn, and you can call me Ash.

So, basically, if you want me to betaread for you, send a PM, and I'll get back to you within a week.

I will revise and send back any documents you send within twenty-four hours.

Depending on how you wish me to proceed, I can either correct typos and bad wording, or highlight and add my comment on what you should do. I recommend the former, but I'm fine with the latter as well.

If you want me to betaread for you, don't be a bitch. That's all I can really say. Don't complain about the changes I make, generally respect me, and I'll do the same to you. Betareading is a favor, and I'm not obligated to do this. I take time out of my busy schedule to read over your writing, and if you send me flames about how I do so, expect me to extinguish them... as well as your hopes of keeping me on as a betareader. If you don't like the way I'm proofreading, then get a new beta-reader. That's all that can be said on that matter.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Alright, quite a few here.

I am exceptional at detecting grammar and spelling mistakes. The only time that any of my works will contain these flaws is when I don't proofread. And I almost never publish hot-off-the-press material.

I also have a gift for wording. If one of your sentences doesn't make sense, I'll highlight it and suggest another way of getting your point across.

As a writer, my forte is probably emotional bits. Need touchy-feels? Don't hesitate to ask.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My only real weakness is attitude. I am awful at sugarcoating bad news - for example, that you have a Mary Sue/Gary Stue or that you're deviating from canon - so don't give me reason to break such news to you and I won't have to. However, if you're worried about the matter, regardless of whether or not I've informed you of it being a problem, based on personal experience, I think it's safe to say that I am pretty good at helping you to fix your mistakes.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, I'm a sucker for Romance. Humor as well. After that, Family and Friendship. Other than those genres, I'll beta anything, but those especially.

Also, I have a ton of categories I'll betaread for. Harry Potter definitely is my number one choice.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Crossovers and complete AUs. I'm not interested in a Harry Potter fic whose only real resemblance to the series is magic. You want to write about a family of witches and wizards outside the walls of Hogwarts? Change up some of the spell names and publish it on FictionPress.
