Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm actually studying proofreading at the moment so this will be great practice. I can be really involved in the story if you want or I can just be another human spell checker. If I don't think something quite fits right I'll tell you but the author always has the last word. If you want me to just go through your last updates and check spelling and grammar, that's fine, if you want me to be a sounding board for ideas and a second opinion, I'd love to. It's up to you as the author how much I get involved. Though I hold the right to fall absolutely in love with your characters. ;p I like to first have a discussion on how I can best help you and then we can go from there. If you update regularly or once every 6 months that's fine, there's no pressure. I'm just looking forward to being involved with the process. ;p
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at spelling or can be great at spotting what isn't spelt right and finding a dictionary to correct it. ;p Good with spotting grammar mistakes but I also know that authors have their own style and way of writing, so I'll look forward to helping you hone that if you wish. I'm good at finding consistency errors and those little mistakes we make when we get too excited about our stories. ;p I'm also really good at finding plot holes. I love Harry Potter and am really (freakishly) knowledgable about the canon. ;p If you needed any back up on facts about that, I'd be happy to help. I'm also British so if you're writing a story based in Britain and need any help knowing whats what, I'm yours to help. ;p
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not perfect but I know techniques to get around that. ;p If I don't know the canon, I'm not sure how ell I'll be able to help you, other than with spelling and grammar etc. Sometimes, I might take several days, depending on how much I'm to proofread but I'll keep in contact to let you know. I'll also be truthful in a tactful way, depending on how much you want me to be involved. Meaning if it's only the basics you want, then no worries but if you would like me to give an opinion, be prepared for it not always to be 100% positive.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Love lots of types, but especially romance, comedy, drama, that sort of thing. I'm open to a lot. AU, CANON. As long as the plot line is there. Don't mind if you're writing a slapstick or a completely serious one, that has moral undertones kind of thing. ANYTHING!;p Also, don't mind just having a check over the short stories but prefer the longer ones, that people are committed too. Just no worries though, if you can no longer carry on with the story. Sometimes life is like that.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Where the plot is SMUT, if it just happens to come up a lot, no worries but if there's no other plot line I struggle.
