Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I like to go into depths with the authors I am helping. I'm not the type to just help correct a few grammatical errors and send you on your way. I wish to really help by analyzing the characters, the plot, the dialogue, etc in every way, shape and form. I am extremely busy, as I'm going through my senior year of college and life is hectic. I won't be able to finger comb through every detail that well. If you can't handle basic grammar or spelling, please do not bother me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am meticulous with spelling, grammar, and tense issues. Greater than my skills with the technical piece of writing, I think, is my dedication to the more abstract parts, such as characterization. My psychology-based mind needs to flesh out every aspect about a character, including personality, motives, their purpose in the story. Also, I consider myself an artistic person, so I can greatly contribute to the creative process of brainstorming a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am extremely, extremely busy. I won't be able to hold your hand through spelling issues. If you aren't a decent writer with a good grasp of the English language, then I'm not the beta you need. I would rather have an intelligent person who I can have grown up conversations with about their writing. But because I'm so busy with classes, and work, and research, I might be difficult to contact.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am extremely open-minded in all genres. I prefer romance, action, angst, humor, and drama, but I'll read anything. I love a well-written one shot, but longer stories with unique plots make me happiest. Also, I am not afraid of unorthodox couplings. In fact, I welcome them. :) I like pairings of all shapes and sizes. Also, I'll read the juciest lemon and the bloodiest murder rampage to most kid friendly happy-go-lucky fic. Nothing will make me squeamish. My stomach's of steel.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am completely illiterate in poetry. I can try to read your poems, but I won't be able to make sense out of them. I much prefer het romance stories, but I'm willing to read slash.
