|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! I'm Olivia and I've decided to try out my hand at beta-reading. I've done it before, edited people's writing, just never online and under the official name of beta reading. See, I have a reputation at my school as a writer, I've awards in State/National competitions and whatnot, so I tutor people aspiring to write, go over their work and see what I can do. I thought it would be cool to do the same thing /br /

I don't know much about 'beta reading style'. I would re-read your work, look for grammatical errors and for where a word or paragraph could be changed/removed/added for effect. I would also look at characterization, a very important part of fanfiction writing. Having characters too out of character without an excuse is a pet peeve of /br /
br /br /
I don't have any 'expectations' of anyone who, as the site is saying, 'wishes to acquire my services' except that a) You don't write in script form, b) You stay far away from smut and relationships with large age gaps and c) That you're friendly! Manners never hurt anyone, and being treated as anything less (or more, on the off chance that would ever happen ha) than an equal would be infuriating.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can use techniques, vocabulary and paragraphing to make writing more immersive and/or emotional. I'm good at characterization and conversations between characters. I have a large vocabulary and can actually use big words when they are needed, rather than shoving them in whenever I feel like it.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Long paragraphs are the death of me, and if faced with them I'll probably lose interest and miss any mistakes. The same goes for long bursts of angst, and by that I mean paragraphs upon paragraphs of it. I've also never attempted to write action scenes, so I'm not sure how that would go over. I'm average at best when it comes to spelling. Gramma, sure, but spelling sucks so I'll be little to no help there. I'm Australian, and so have a habit of using slang that is selective to my country as well as having limited knowledge of American or English education systems. Finally, I never figured out the difference between then and than. It's kinda annoying.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have no preference. Humour, fluff, hurt/comfort, it's all good, though I'm particularly comfortable with humour. I also don't care what fandom the fanfiction is from, it's highly likely I know it and if I don't then research is key.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing smutty, ever. I'm not a fan of graphic scenes, toruture etc. Also nothing relating to rape, it's not a subject I want to be reading or writing about. I'm also slightly uncomfortable when it comes to writing about real-life figures. So I'll stay away from that too, sorry.
