|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm completing a certificate in Copy-Editing within the next few weeks so you can be assured that I am extremely thorough. That being said, I am best at developmental editing but line editing is also something I can do.
I will definitely get your chapter back to you within 24 hours max...br /br /
I will treat every story that comes my way as if it were an actual book. When inquiring, please let me know what kind of reading you want me to do, whether it be just for grammar and spelling, content, or just to give it a read through to see how it comes off. If you don't tell me, I will assume you want me to do all of the above and I will go whole ham on /
One of my biggest pet peeves is reading a character or anything that doesn't match the universe that it's set in. Example, if you are writing a fanfic for Naruto with an OC, that OC better have a Japanese name, not something mystical and sounds like it belongs in Lord of the Rings. I am likely not going to beta-read something that doesn't sound like a story I wouldn't click on. I want to help you write to your fullest potential. Before I agree to Beta anything, I want to make sure that we fit as an author/editor duo and will first offer a sample edit to see if it clicks.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with spelling, characterization, word choice, and description. I am also good at cutting things out that don't need to be there and finding a better place to put them and word them if it's something important, or for descriptive purposes. I am a nut for historical accuracy so if I see something that isn't historically accurate such as behavior, dress, speech, anything, I will point it out. I also accept smut, I'm a good judge of love scenes.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best at action scenes, but I know how to make dialogue work with them, and I know a well written action scene when I read one. If you have an action scene and it's not quite right, I'll literally just tell you my thoughts on it, but won't give you suggestions on how to fix it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like OC/canon romance stories the most, deep intricate plots with deep character
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not big on AU or slash, I am not opposed to slashfiction but I don't read them so therefore I am not a good judge of thembr /br /
br /br /
One-shots are not my cup of tea. I prefer good long stories with plot and character development.
