Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I understand what it's like to be criticized harshly, so when I betaread, I try and be as nice about it as my intentions really are, so don't be afraid that I'll chop you into pieces.
I have an eye for detail, plot, and story flow over spelling, grammar, and punctuation, though I'm skilled at both, so I can probably give a hand all around.
I personally enjoy betareading for the practice it gives me in editing work. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best at sentence rearrangement in order to make things clearer to the reader. I can tell when something just doesn't sound right and I can help fix it.
I'm fairly good at punctuation, though it's not my specialty.
I'm very good with grammar, and somewhat good with word replacement and spelling.
I find that it is very easy for me to insert detailing into a story, so if your story is lacking in details and imagery, I'm your girl.
I'm good with romance and other deep emotions.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I cannot make any stories funnier or scarier than they already are-- comedy and horror are not my genre, so if you need help with one of the two, I can only help so far as with grammar, punctuation, spelling, word replacement, etc.
I'm not too good with smut, though I don't mind helping with it if I can.
I'm also very poor with reducing word count. :P
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
All pairings (straight, boy/boy, girl/girl, etc) are fine with me. I have no preference whatsoever. The deep, phycological romances are what I tend to write myself, so I guess that's what I'm good at.
Stories in which there is deep digging around in a character's head are always fun. I love seeing how the characters work.
That aside, I like a lot of things. A story without too much mental-buzz is a nice switch.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't want script, blagh. Also, smut with a poor plot is just not captivating enough. Give me smut with a purpose if you give me any at all. Everything else is welcome.
