β : Sarga is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy reading grammatically and syntactically correct stories and love to help other authors make enjoyable works. Sometimes everyone has a certain impression of their own work such that they overlook their own foibles with regards to spelling or grammar. As a beta my goal is to act as the necessary second set of eyes to help catch those minor mishaps.
Another goal of mine is to provide a sounding board and guidance with regards to character actions and story flow. If something doesn't look right I'll ask the questions necessary to provoke thoughts about the type of character development desired by the author.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Generally speaking grammar, spelling and punctuation are my strengths.
Maintaining story flow within a chapter and developing overall story arches take a little more effort, but I'm competent at those tasks as well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can sometimes get a little too caught up in minuscule details, sometimes they seem more important than they are, sometimes they're as important as I had thought...a little patience on both our parts might be warranted but usually a small kick in the rump will get me back on track.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories where the characters are in character or deviate in a realistic manner. Alternate universes are fine and dandy, just so long as the core spirit of the characters remain intact.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There's very little I won't attempt to beta, however everyone has their own limits...if I come to them I'll let you know. Generally speaking, if it doesn't have a plot, I don't give it more than a passing glance (if you want help developing plot, however, I'm willing to act as a sounding board)
