Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! I have never beta-read a story before, except my sister's fics. I think I'm up for the job. My betareading style generally follows this principle. I think that as a beta I should have the right to edit everything ranging from spelling to ideas. I will not change the plot, but if I feel that there is another better option, you shouldn't be offended at my blatant honesty.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have excellent grammer and sentence structure skills, as well as what I feel is the ability to make things flow. I feel I am capable of being open minded enough to change my perception to fit that of the characters, so as to give a more complete story. I am brutally honest. I also think that I have the ability to judge whether something is crowd pleasing or not.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have an annoying tendancy to not notice typo-errors. I have issues with spellings of words like weather and whether, and Sentence and Sentance. But other than that, nothing major.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like to read/write/beta stories with a plot. Though I admit to having written plotless fics before, I enjoy stories which have been well planned. I think I am more able to criticise fics like this and can point out which parts are good and which are not.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I think I would rather not betaread fics which have fannon and very OOC characters because of my lack of expertise I may not be able to help as well.
