β : Toast and Suicide is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I generally try to correct any grammar mistakes and spelling errors first, and I will give suggestions on possible ways to reword and rewrite segments. If asked for anything plot related, I will give recommendations and try to help you patch up any possible plotholes, look for originality, etc.
Be warned! I'm pretty critical of stories, and I know nothing's perfect, but don't expect me to just edit stuff and NOT give any other kind of negative feedback, especially if I see a hole in the story.
I'm pretty open for beta-reading most genres, just no lemons/limes please. I just don't like reading that kind of stuff.
Finally, I know I can really annoying sometimes, with pointing every mistake I see, but don't throw a tantrum at me. If you think I'm not being fair with my judgments, TELL ME. Otherwise there will be misunderstandings all over the place, and that doesn't make for a healthy relationship. =)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can usually spot spelling errors like crazy, and grammar is in there somewhere too. I personally don't think I'm too talented when it comes to writing, but I've been editing other peoples' papers for awhile now (being at least 3 years of experience). I also love to read stories and do the philosophical kind of stuff, so let me know if you want my crappy interpretation on your story or something. XD
I can be pretty reliable when it comes to due dates and stuff, so if you need it done by a certain time (provided I'm not already busy with my load of school work or something), I'll be able to do that, too.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Despite being able to edit grammar, mine isn't too good. I'm also working on how to fit in dialogue and descriptions better so that they flow together. I also have a problem with long-term commitments when someone doesn't tell me what to do/what they want, so yeah.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, I really like any stories aside from crack and romance-y ones (although I will beta if you really want me to).
As for sections, any of the 'Tales of' video game series are a-okay with me. =D I pretty much prefer to beta stories I have some kind of background on, but if asked realllly nicely and with cherries on the top and stuff like that, I might beta some other anime series. Maybe. =)
I can only do English, because it's the only language I'm actually fluent in, so yeah.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Just no lemons/limes for any kind of pairing. And no incest either. I find it slightly disturbing.
