Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
One of my dreams is to become a book editor, so I love reading other people's ideas and helping them through the writing process! What I'm basically looking for is a creative and original idea. Something that makes me want to know more and enjoy. I like all kinds of genres; romance, comedy, dark and mysterious, fun and flirty, ect... They all interest me (: I am not the kind of beta that changes everything about your story. I will help you make it better by giving you suggestions, but I am not going to tell you what to do. This is your story... I WILL tell you my thoughts on it, but I WILL NOT tell you what should happen and where the story should go (unless you ask, of course). I am simply here to help (: And if you have a specific way of writing, kind of like a trademark style, then who am I to tell you it's wrong? You do you! If you want me to beta-edit your story, please PM me the category and the summary for some background knowledge (: Thanks!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'd say I'm pretty good with grammar and spelling, as well as structuring sentences and arranging words so that they flow off the tongue better. Nothing distracts a reader from the story more than choppy sentences and awkward phrasing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Creativity... That's why I want to be an editor and not an author haha. World-building is not in my wheel-house, but I thoroughly enjoy reading about it! Creating names for made-up places/things isn't my forte either. If you're writing about a magical world, please don't ask me to name places/creatures/spells/etc. Seriously... this is why I don't write about those kinds of things! I am also pretty lazy, so it might take me a while to read your story (thoroughly, I may add). But it shouldn't take me longer than a week to get back to you! If it does, just PM me and I'll get my butt into gear!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would love to beta some new original and creative stories, but honestly, I'm not picky. I could beta any fanfic story, but if I haven't read the book, seen the movie/tv show, etc., it probably will be a little more difficult. I'm still open to it though! The main fanfics that I have associated myself with are The 100, Gallagher Girls, and Riverdale...but like I said, I'm open to others! I just love reading and editing (: Your story doesn't have to be canon or a continuation of the original novel/movie/tv show. I really enjoy stories that are considered AU/modern day kinda-thing, and I love OC's! It also doesn't bother me if characters are OOC, just as long as they keep the same personality throughout the story. Profanity, sexual content, and adult themes don't bother me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not multilingual! I know basic Spanish, but not enough to beta :/ Please, stick to English. There aren't many genres that I don't read outside of FanFic, so I'm pretty comfortable reading any type of genre or story as your beta (: If I am asked to beta and it just isn't working out for either of us, ending the beta process would probably be best. So, don't feel like you have to stay with me if you're really not feeling it lol.
