Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am not sure exactly what my style is. I guess I am just the kind of person who likes writing to be good, and who expects writing to be good. I strive for plot development, good spelling and grammar, and overall good style. Of course, I know no one is perfect. I know I'M not perfect when it comes to writing. I think that there are a lot of people, though, who have a good style and good ideas, and just need a little help to make their stories really, really great. I would be willing to be that helper.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am an AMAZING speller. I won't lie. The only words I ever get confused on are ones with 'er, ir, or' endings. Like doctor, actor, speller, etcetc. Also, I have a good sense of what is or is not grammatically correct, just by the way a sentence sounds. I have good ideas for fixing sentences so that they sound better, not just grammatically, but so that they have style as well. I am good at transitioning from paragraph to paragraph smoothly... haha. I am good at turning boring sounding sentences into interesting sounding sentences. And, basically, I am just good at turning a well-intentioned but poorly written story into a well-intentioned and well carried out story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not good at criticism. I am not very good at telling people straight out, "This would would sound better this way." I am bad at telling people that they're wrong. So it would be wise, if you were to for some reason request me as a beta, to tell me upfront where I need to draw the line with my criticism, so that I can know when I'm doing what you want me to do, and so I can be sure of when my criticizing turns into pure blatant insulting to you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Heh, the good stories. No, I'm kidding. I pretty much will read any genre, any pairing, anything you want me to. Slash, het, rape, slavery... all that stuff is good with me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No incest... that's really the only stuff I don't like.
