Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I look for a compelling masterpiece, a work of literature that captures the reader's imagination. I often look for stories that I can either relate to and make me really feel what is going on inside of the writer's mind. My style is straight to the point. I'm not afraid to criticize and rate someone but at the same time, I offer constructive criticism whenever I can. I like long stories with much detail although there are the rookie stories that are satisfiable. Mind you, I can be a little edgy when it comes to bad stuff. My expectations? I only expect the best out of what the writer can do. If they put effort into it, then it's not bad. A good story in my view is telling a story through characters with their own personalities and their own little back story to tell. They must have good interactions between the characters, not for any of them being awkward. Imagination is the key to success and if you follow that, there is a whole world of ideas just waiting to be explored. Now a BAD story is a story that looks like it was made at the last second with poor character interactions and not much of a story to be told if there is even one. When you read a story, you expect to drop out from reality and feel what the characters feel. Writing isn't easy and I've been doing it since I could put pen to paper. This isn't something that you can say Hey I want to be a writer, this is serious stuff. People might say I'm a jerk when it comes to reviews but if being brutally honest is the way to success, then that's the truth. Often, I'll critique a story on a few basic elements. The first would be Characters. Whether it be a monologue or just thoughts morphed into a story, it's whatever you want it to be. Take pride in what you're doing and when someone judges you wrong, relax! Not EVERYBODY is gonna like your story. You can't make them all like it but the only thing you can do is learn from what is given to you through advice and build up from that? Ask yourself how does it sound? Now it may be different from my standards but let's be honest, you won't be perfect the first time and you'll have to accept that.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel in many genres but the top three are Romance, Action, and Drama. I find it easy to write because of inspirations from other movies. Don't borrow the entire story, base some of your stuff off it. Believe me, there is nothing worse then being accused of stealing a story. It does a lot to your reputation. Romance is often complex. You have to make sure that through the words, you can tell if it's love or not. When it comes to sex stories, I like them and have created quite a lot of them but there is a very fine line between lust and love. Drama is my best. I am excellent at getting the suspense up just right. Drama requires careful planning and timing as well as creativity. You don't want to be unoriginal yet you might find yourself in that direction. If so, just make sure you know what you're doing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't have very many but a big one for me is writing angst. I mean, drama is kind of like that but we are talking EXTREME depression like wrist cutting and really brutal stories. Those I can't bring myself to write, they are challenging to write and they do a lot to your heart when you reflect on it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance is at the top of my list. I love seeing two characters in a romantic situation whether it's love at first sight, true love, forbidden love, all forms are really fun to read and write. Action would be second. If you can picture it, it's good.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Rape stories. Those don't even deserve to be written.
