Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well hello! I'm Drunken Madness and I have written a couple of humour fics for various well-known fandoms. The reason I'm extending this account to beta reading is because I generally read a lot better then I write! Being at university, though busy in assessment periods, leaves me a lot of free time to experience the wonders of all different types and styles of fanfiction by various authors. I generally like to offer advice mistakes made, (whether they be grammar, spelling, or it doesn't flow for example), and can (to the most part) offer advice when it comes to ideas put forward by a writer but the one thing I will NOT do as a beta is write the story for you! I can handle giving an opinions on where the fic is going, telling the author whether it deviates from canon (if that is an issue with the fic), or even fleshing out ideas but I cannot write the plot for you as it is (in my understanding) the beta readers job to help a writer develop a fic to it's full potential by being a second pair of eyes and offering an unbiased assessment you wouldn't usually get with people you know. If you are still reading this and are still considering choosing me for a beta them PM and I promise to do the best job that I can!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am fairly good at writing conventions, spelling, punctation and grammar (being at university kinda pummels that into you). I'm good at pinpointing places in text that deviate or disturb the flow and have a somewhat wide range of reading (genres/ratings). This means I'll read almost everything I can (good or bad) and try to pinpoint both the good (and bad) facets of a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I suck at naming things! If being your beta means helping you name a fic, the chapters or writing summaries I am not the person for you!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love oneshotes and multi-chapters fics but really it doesn't bother me as long as it not the two mentioned mediums mentioned in 'Not My Cup of Tea' aka Songifcs and Poetry
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't read/beta would be songfics and poetry...I sorry but as much as I acknowledge that they are valid and awesome form of artistic expression I just can't read them no matter how good they are! Sorry!
