Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So, I'm new to Beta reading but I've always just corrected stories in my mind as I read them anyways. I correct grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. I love reviewing, giving advice and reading others stories. Although my own stories, of course, have faults in these areas I do try my hardest not to miss anything. There is only so many times one can read over their own story however. I love giving constructive criticism, and hope to help others get past plot holes in their story, writers block or even just motivate them to not give up...because trust me, somewhere out there are people who will be devastated when their favorite story is taken down.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've always loved English class, though I haven't always loved the English teachers, so I'm quite good with grammar, spelling, sentence structure and the various rhetorical techniques that are associated with writing. I'm an avid reviewer as well, and won't try to push my way of writing on your story. In the end, the beta is there to give advice and correct grammatical errors NOT to make another authors story their own.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm just going to be totally honest and say that, well...I have a problem with spelling. We're not friends. But that's what spell check is for isn't it? :)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have much of a preference on what type of stories I read as long as they have romance in them. I also like all pairings: Slash (M/M), Yuri (F/F), and Het (M/F) but am especially partial to F/F. Genres: Must have plot. I prefer Drama or Romance to be one of the categories. But I do like angst and Adventure/Action, Suspense, Family, Hurt/comfort and all that as well. I also prefer the rating to be T or M.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No Horror or stories with rape in them. The Romance MUST be consensual. No end of the world stories. No parodies or stories that are only for comedic value but have no underlying plot.
