Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Writing is my passion. I'm an Art teacher by trade, and if I wasn't, I'd probably be teaching English. I've been writing stories for years now, and I like to think I've come a long way. I still have learning to do, but I am confident enough in my skills that I believe I can assist someone else. I'm picky on grammar, and I'll make sure that your sentences make sense. I will not, however, write your story for you. Send me a draft, I'll edit it and tell you where it needs to be improved, and you can fix that and send it to me again. Red pens are my best friends.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can help add variety to your sentence structures and the words you use. I have a fairly large vocabulary that loves to find its way out into my writing. Connecting ideas is one of the things I do best, along with descriptiveness. I also love (yes, you read that right) general editing, so if you're just looking for someone to comb through for grammatical errors, ask away.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not experienced enough with boy/boy or girl/girl relationships to say with any confidence that I can offer good advice on stories that heavily center on them, not to mention things greatly sexual in nature, since I also don't have experience in that department. I'm also more of a punny than a funny person, so humor isn't one of my strong suits.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Most of my experience is with Inuyasha, and I can confidently say I'm very familiar with the fandom. Adventure, humor, mystery, and things with OCs, since I consider myself familiar with those, are also easy for me to beta (and I can give you suggestions to improve character development). I have a strong tendency toward making connections through small details; give me something with intention of having those sprinkled throughout, and I'll be all over it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything heavily M-rated (sexual, horror). Also, I absolutely cannot handle graphic descriptions of stabbing of any sort because of an extreme phobia. Simply mentioned I'm cool with, but please don't send me something detailing the object interacting with skin, because the description I just wrote there is about as much as I can handle.
