Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Shapby and I just started to beta-read here, though previously I've been beta-reading for a friend of mine, who is also an author here on I have plenty of time in my hands at the moment, so I don't mind beta-reading for others. The MO I usually use is editing through Google Docs or through e-mail; I usually mark corrections in red, and give out comments on where I think needs correction. That's pretty much it, but if there's something you'd like to discuss, I usually use IMs.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar. I have a TOEFL-score equivalent of 624; I know that's not that high, but I think it's sufficient for mild editing. And I can get really detailed if you want, right up to the dots, commas, etc.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm slow. So if you expect an edit to be done in an hour, you've gone to the wrong person. I need about a day for a chapter of 3000 words.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Manga-based fan fictions, esp. those mentioned in my preferences. Genres that are also in my preferences.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash pairings. Crossovers.
