Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I can do lots of grammar (got a 4-week intensive to be a tutor at my school for a semester) as well as general plot/subplot and characterization. I've beta read for a few traditionally and self-published authors before so I am familiar with the process. I'll read at least 1 chapter a week, providing general feedback as well as nitpicks. You may request me to look at specific areas in depth if you so desire. If you want to get an idea of my strengths/weaknesses, I recommend checking out some of my works to see what my shortcomings are in your eyes.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and major plot elements. I can also look at outlines for large plot-related stuff.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Dialogue and tone. While I know the difference between passive and active and can point it out, I tend to write/lean into passive writing styles.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Something with a fantasy element to it. Love magic systems and that sort of stuff. The more original the plot is the more interested I will be. I honestly believe that fanfiction can do a lot of interesting things and explore complex ideas or emotions through a familiar landscape. That's not saying that I won't refuse an amazing OutlawQueen short fluff or any of the like! Also, if I've written a fic for it, assume I know the franchise well enough to beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Very romance heavy or romance centred. While romance can be done well, I haven't enjoyed many books besides the occasional fluff that I enjoy. A romance subplot is okay. I will not beta anything depicting abusive/toxic/harmful relationships, especially if it glorifies them. No smut/slash all that sort of stuff. Also, if I don't know the fandom well enough, I may refuse to beta depending on the type of critique wanted. IE if you want grammar, sure, but if you need characterization or lore/consitentcy related work, I probably won't be able to help.
