|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've taken college courses on mastering the English language as well as writing stories and editing/analyzing others. I'm what you might call a grammar nazi (my mom was an English professor, so I was raised on that) and I keep what I hope is a good eye on characterization, plot development, vocabulary, and description in general. I will give you my entire opinion on your story, I will proofread it, I will criticize it, or tell you your story is perfect, depending on what kind of beta-reading you ask for ;) I'm easy-going and I promise I will not be mean about your work, ever! I am only here to help you, so I hope I can do that much!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I pay attention to grammar and spelling right away. I will probably read over your story a few times to get a real feel for it and to pick out the parts that don't quite fit, that need tweeking, etc. I'm good with finding a better way to word things; I will suggest any sort of improvement you might need to make.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not always at my best, to say the least. Sometimes things will go over my head entirely, and to tell you the truth, I am NOT the smartest person in the world. I know, right? D: Sometimes my suggestions will be dead wrong. But, they're only suggestions, and I hope you take them as such. Also, I see the best in things, and I tend to go very easy, so I might not give you the well-rounded critique that you need.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories where the characters ARE completely in-character. I'm fine with any sort of romance, but I prefer pairings that are believable, or at least made believable through the fic.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like far-fetched stories as much. I don't like stories where you take characters from a canon and place them in some other setting/world they would never be in. I'm not completely strict on this--I'm fine with Transformers going to a Cybertron high school, for example. That's sort of possible, anyway, isn't it? I will not beta tasteless/meaningless sex/porn. Please tell me a basic summary of your story when you request (:
