Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Currently in a dry spell of fanfictions and in the process of writing two and planning another two, I feel like beta reading would not only fill my time but would also give me something to read as well as inspire me to continue my own writing. I'm fast and efficient at what I do and almost always give a chapter back edited with comments/pointers/corrections in the same day. I've come across some amazing premises in my time on fanfiction but it's been a shame to see them not be able to truly become something special because of the lack of proper writing/context/etc. br /

Fanfiction is a place to flourish -we're all on here because we're passionate about something, and I can think of no better satisfaction than helping encourage and refine someone else's work to something they can take pride in.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a very critical and well trained eye for grammar. I'm a fast reader, and i'm always willing to give options on how to change anything. But most importantly, in my opinion, I know when I see potential and how to make it shine. br /

Also, even though tough skin is always great to have and honesty is my number one policy, I absolutely do not believe in tearing down someone's work. Anything -no matter how bad you think it is, can be fixed and is undeniably someone's work whether you like it or not, and I truly believe that the way we phrase our criticisms shape how people implement them.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I suppose my weakness, being a first time beta reader, is that maybe i'd want to change the writing style to something close to my own. But it's something i'm very aware of and will try me best not to project. And typically, and honestly i'm being just a little selfish here, I would always prefer to beta something that I myself would read or would be interested in reading. It hasn't happened yet, but I feel like if I were to beta something that I myself wouldn't actually go for I would probably be useless in the way of helping with the actual STORY instead of spelling/grammar/syntax.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm very good with slow-burns. Romance/drama/horror/adventure and some comedy...i'm open to pretty much anything. I've listed TVD/Originals in my categories BUT I only work with Klaroline since that's the only stuff I read tbh.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Typically, and speaking to my strengths, i'm not great with writing/planning action or sci-fi -even though I love reading it.
