Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
A friendly, honest betareader with whom you can bounce ideas for your story. I prefer to betaread through Google Docs, so you must be willing to give your email and transfer chapters to there. Skype is preferred. When I betaread, I make comments on grammar, punctuation, and overall emotion of the story and give reasons as to why you should change or keep a specific mechanic of a story. I also like to offer resources to help with this. My goal as a betareader is to help you with your overall writing, and not just with your story— I will offer honest critiques on your writing, emotion, and the flow of your fic. I like to receive a rough outline before you start your story so that I may help you with that as well. Skype is my preferred method of communication, but I also have Discord and KakaoTalk if you prefer to discuss through there.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at grammar, punctuation, and offering ideas should you need them. I understand storytelling and will offer honest critiques on your story direction.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Syntax is my weakness, and while I can tell when other people's sentence structure is confusing, I have difficulty in finding it in my own writing. I occasionally have issues with pacing, if this is relevant to you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My fandoms are Twilight, Marvel, Brothers' Conflict, and many others that I may help with. As for genre, I enjoy angst, action, romance, friendship, and family, though I am fine with others. I don't mind betareading multi-chapter fics or oneshots.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yes— I am not the right beta reader for overhauls, as I do not have time. Please have at least a passable understanding of grammar and punctuation (specifically how to use quotation marks, as I don't want to betaread a story in which I consistently have to correct something so common), and know the general idea of your story. I'm not asking that you know what each chapter is going to be like, but please know at least what you want to happen in the first three or four that way I can help you go from there. Please do not give me a chapter that is less than a thousand words, or I will not bother going through and making comments (besides what you could add) until you write more for it.
