Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I think one of the most important parts of fanfiction is the constructive criticism that you receive. However, though so many of those who review point out what they like or dislike, most reviews aren't enough to help an author improve. I have been a beta a few times before, though privately, and I think my greatest strength is my versatility. If you as a writer simply need someone to read your story over to correct any obvious mistakes, I can definitely do that. When I make changes to a story that are minor, I will bold what I've done. However, I can also discuss and bounce ideas around on story line and characterization. I know my last beta sort of went missing, which was really saddening, so I promise not to do that you. You can expect prompt replies from me, and if for any reason I am unable to reply, then I will make a point of letting you know. br /

I am willing to edit a fanfic on anything that I'm familiar with. I mainly read Harry Potter and Twilight, so you can expect those to be my strongest areas. Message me if you have any questions at all!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think my ability to point out actual story related errors, like the timeline being incorrect, or the sudden changing of someone's eye-color, is an important part of my beta reading. I'm pretty alright with spelling, and if you want me to, I will most definitely help with your sentence structure so it varies and flows. Another thing is, in my own writing, I sometimes am too descriptive, while other times I'm not descriptive enough. Thanks to years of berating myself about this, I catch it in other people's writing right away.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm really a very comma-happy person, so if you are too, between us, we might not catch all the mistakes there. Also, I'm not very good at writing dialogue (though I can correct it just fine), so I'll probably not be able to supplement whole conversations and will simply point out where it is lacking. I'll be able to add a sentence here or there if that's all that's needed though.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer Harry Potter, Twilight or Maximum Ride stories in which there is a bit of romance and humor. I'd really love a happy ending too. However, like I already said, I'm open to being a beta for new things as well, as long as I'm familiar with the original story.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Okay, so as of right now, I will not do any crackfics and very gory/violent stories.
