Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't have massive amounts of experience when it comes to betareading, but I feel that I am pretty qualified to do the job. I am very honest when it comes to betareading, so you can always expect to get my true opinion. I try to beta stories as quickly and efficiently as possible, but if for any reason there is delay on my part, I will try my best to let you know. I don't expect much out of anyone who wants me to be their beta reader, other than honesty and being open to new ideas and other peoples' opinions.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and spelling are definitely two of my strong points. I have a natural tendency to notice mistakes (at least in other people's writing!) as I am reading it. Sentence structure is something that I am particularly good at revising. I also like to think that I am fairly creative when it comes to creating plots, characters and events that are original and interesting.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am naturally a very brutally honest person, and I guess this could offend others. I wouldn't consider myself rude, but if I don't like something, I'll tell you. I don't sugar coat things and I know that some people do not like this style of mentoring.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer beta-ing stories that already have a general story line planned out, even if it is just a rough brainstorm. I know that I am guilty of sometimes having no clue how a story is going to end and I know that it can be very frustrating for both the author and the beta reader. I'm not saying that the whole story has to be planned out perfectly to every event and every chapter, but some structure is preferable.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am open to almost anything. I can't really think of any type of story that I would not read, as long as it meets the guidelines I have set up in my Preferences. Also, just because a certain category isn't listed in my Preferences, that doesn't necessarily mean that I won't beta it. There were just so many categories that I didn't want to list them all! As long as I am familiar with the TV Show, Movie, Book, etc. I will most likely beta the story for you. One last thing, NO SLASH!!!!
