β : FrankSRoad is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am extremely critical and some may say anal retentive. I read stories meticulously forwards and backwards looking for grammar, structure, etc.
Unless I am inundated with work, I will complete it in a day or two. If for some reason it takes longer, I'll notify the author.
If you only want input on a certain aspect of the your story, that's all I will give. I don't want to interfere with the overall way an author wishes to construct the story. That is, unless a correction is blatantly obvious, e.g., spelling and tense.
On the other hand if you can take constructive criticism, I am more than happy to help out.
If your story is from a subject matter that I am not over familiar with, I will do my best to learn the basics of that world.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Again, I am generally well versed in all parts of English composition.
If a story is interesting, I tend to retain a good deal of information throughout the story arc.
I am very adaptable when it comes to understanding and reading OC and AU.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Only English stories. I know a little Spanish and French, but certainly not enough for me to properly beta a story in either.
I may tend to use larger words when a simple word would do.
Perfection is hard to pull off and I may miss something from time to time.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My favorite stories to read are the long, in depth novels that have time to develop the plot and characters. That's not to say I won't read the shorter stories, but I do enjoy the long read.
Action, Adventure, Drama, General, etc. There isn't a genre that I won't read.
Below you will find the list of worlds in which I am familiar with its cannon. Just remember that doesn't mean those are all that I'll beta for you, especially if it's only grammar and such.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash, yaoi, yuri (whatever you want to call them) stories. I'm sorry, but I can't read them.
That's really it. If you have anymore questions just let me know!
