Author has written 2 stories | Harry Potter.
β : kaitlynmarie1413 is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a very critical beta reader. Original description, right? I don't really have any expectations from any writers if/when they send me material to critique, but I do grade with a strict "teacher's eye." Spelling, punctuation, and impeccable grammar are my top priorities when reviewing a work, along with consistency of character personalities and a well-flowing plot. Also, if I feel I don't know enough about a given fandom to properly do any one fan fiction justice, I could still "grade" it on pure writing mechanics, but not on characterization or canonized content.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at correcting for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and holding the writer accountable for maintaining a steady plot line within his or her story. Essentially, I pick out plot holes and proofread really well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My major weakness is in interpreting different symbols used in literary writing. I often struggle when it comes to looking deeper than the surface of a story, or beyond the simple, basic mechanics. However, many people (I do realize that there are some of you guys out there) when writing fanfiction do not go that deep, so I think I'm in safe waters.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I do not have any specific preferences.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I refuse to betaread any stories that are rated 'M' for sexual content (regardless of whether the couple is heterosexual or homosexual, I still think "smut" is disgusting). Also, I absolutely under NO conditions will betaread any stories that have explicit detail of self-harm of one of the characters. I have read stories in the past where the main character in the respective story discovers that a friend (or even an enemy) of theirs has been self-harming, but the author thankfully does not go too deep into detail. Should that be the case, please warn me ahead of time, but I will still read your story. If I think the content is too bloody or too gruesome, I will send it back to you. Please, do not be offended, I just cannot bear to hear of someone willingly hurting him or herself or trying to bring an end to his or her life.
