Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am one that looks for perfection, even if I myself cannot attain it. I will look at things closely and keep in touch constantly with the author as to my suggestions and changes. I will be a constructive critic as I know most of us aren't English majors. I will also be available to the author for any questions or concerns that they might have about my suggestions and will be a resource if they are in a /

br /

As to my style, I will read chapters as a whole making a mental note of mistakes I might see. From there I will print off a copy to mark up, ask the author to send the document to me and send a marked up version of my changes back to the author. This way the author can quickly see what changes I have made and whether or not they wish to keep them. I will also be writing with Canadian words (i.e. favourite, neighbour...). I will be able to adjust accordingly according to the authors needs but that was how I was taught and that will be correcting that /

br /

I require authors that chose to use me as a beta to be somewhat knowledgeable with Microsoft Word and to send .doc to me as the preferred document type. I will be the last step of review and do not wish to see something that you yourself have not previously checked /

As I said before, I will also be available to bounce ideas off of and look forward to working with you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I do excel at using more descriptive words than the basic ones in most vocabulary, my thesaurus is my right hand man...er book, in this case. The lavish explanations may be lengthy but they add to any story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Time is of the essence and will not be generously granted to me at my whim. I will try my absolute best to be there when I am needed but like every one here, I also have a life to take care of.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I do like fantasy a lot and would prefer stories in that genre. It also goes in include most Anime and manga. Favourites include: Inuyasha, Hana Kimi, Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Harry Potter
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If I do not know the story the fan fiction is based off of well enough I will not take the story on, as it is not fair to the author. Certain conditions will be if the story was previously described to me and it peaks my interest.
