|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi everyone! Freida 5 here, and ready to read some stories of writers on the rise. some of you may be writing for the first time and I know it can be nerve wracking, but with this new feature I can help you submit a better and more streamlined story.
I love when authors go above and beyond the normal five page blurb. If you really want to dive head first into the fan fic experience and write a huge story I would be delighted to read it. I do like a story with a little bit of funniness, but I can do the melodramatic to. I also like poetry, so send it my way.
No matter what you write, I'll try not to be harsh. If you get a lot of negative feed back don't worry, it's only my opinion. Remember, you can take any criticism I say and think it's junk. I certainly won't be upset. I want to give you people an honest review, but please don't let me discourage you. Everyone has something that rubs them the wrong way, and I might get a story that I just don't like!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like a strong vocabulary in a story, so if you have the word 'really' over and over again as an adjective I'm going to give you some better words.
I can always tell when a plot is stalling, or if something is added where it doesn't need to be. A long story is good, but a long story where a third of it isn't plot development isn't good. I can stick through a big or complicated plot, so I won't be daunted by a twenty plus page story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can't stand grammar mistakes! if you have a lot of mistakes, you're going to be hearing about every single one of them!
sometimes if the story is too slow to begin with it can annoy me and affect my view of the rest of the story. Also I can't stand two dimensional characters. You better have an idea where you're going with your home brewed characters or I might suggest you bump them off! Along this line I can't deal with Mary Sues. don't insert an omnipotent, invincible character into your story just because it represents you.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like fantasy or adventure stories, and sometimes even stories that don't make a lot of sense. I want to read fics from people who are eager to put a little more effort into their stories. I have a smattering of interest in all categories, but I may be out of the loop on some of the rarer games and animes. I'll read anything, but you might have longer to hear from me because I'm looking up your category on the internet to get an idea about what you're talking about.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
things I won't read: sad but true, but I must decline to help some of you. I can't deal with the graphic side of fan fics. if your story is M or above for adult reasons (not violence or language) I don't want to read it. Also, if you want to create a random funny story, make sure it's going somewhere. I don't want to read about people glomping or eating random foodstuffs for thirty minutes. Don't expect it to be funny if you just stick your favorite characters in it. :(
