|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love seeing where and who the ideas for stories come from; characters and stories can often be as dear to our own hearts as our dreams. The best part of story-reading (and writing) is creating that bond. br /
Beta-style? I am a stickler for grammar, and I will point out misuses of there, their, and they're. I'm not shy about what I like or dislike, but I will never ever EVER completely rip a story to shreds. Good ideas can be hidden anywhere. Out of Character-ness bothers me immensely; if you're going to take another writer's characters and make a story for them, you had better know who and what you're writing. At the same time, I will have my own story ideas and I am a high school senior who is currently applying to college, has sports practice for three hours after school every week day, so it my reply may not be instantaneous.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a sucker for romance and therefore am fairly good at writing and seeing it; I also have a perchance for humor (both subtle and non) and would be glad to help anyone insert a bit of a laugh into any piece. Drama/angst comes pretty easily as well. Wordchoice is another strong suit, and I thrive for "cried" in place of "said." Variety is the best!
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to run on a bit, and probably over-elaborate when a simple "he said no" would do.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Multi-chapter stories, one-shots, character studies, poems, whatever.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything where a main character dies. Just not my thing (unless it's canon, but even then I tend to shy away from death). I also (no offense to any who enjoy this) will not beta for slash.
