Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm awkwardly new at this, but I love editing. I would like to pursue a career as an editor, but until then, here I am. I love reading and writing, and generally, I'm pretty good at finding what could be improved. I know I'm probably not your first choice, but it would be extremely nice if you'd give me a chance. My style is more of trying to help your style improve and grow, not adding my own touch. I'll do the regular things, like making sure there are no plot holes, and I'm also good at picking up grammar. I also like to give subtle suggestions that will make the story more well-rounded. I'll even pitch you an idea every once in a while that you could add your own twist to. If you'd like to see my own writing style, you can check out one of my stories. They're far from perfect, but they thoroughly show my writing style. I'll only be able to accept a couple of stories at a time. I also would prefer to help authors who are pretty active and who really want to finish their stories. I really hope that we can work together to improve your story and help your writing prosper :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Okay, I guess I consider myself pretty good with writing and grammar in the long run. The books and/or shows that I beta read for I binge read or watch, so I know what I'm talking about. As I said in my general profile, I'm great at helping your style without adding my taint onto it. I'm really active. I have a thing for nice constructive criticism, which can be helpful.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm pretty much hopeless helping out with a fanfiction that I've never read the original of, unless you're looking for the grammar police. Some people greatly dislike my constructive criticism. I sometimes skip over key sentences, and occasionally get distracted. Like I said, I'm inexperienced and new.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to beta in the areas that I'm listed under, of course. I'm an action and romance kind of girl. I love Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, so those are my first choices of beta-reading. I don't prefer one-shots, but I will edit them. I'm actually way better at editing multi-chapter stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would not be a good beta reader for a story about a couple sitting in bed watching a movie for three chapters straight. Sorry, but I am not a person who has the patience to sit there and read, "They kissed passionately like the couple in the movie. As the plot wore on she began to wish that their relationship was...". Also, I don't beta-read parodies.
