β : eloquentlyinsane is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will beta almost any story. But I will be very honest, brutally so. If I think it doesn't rock, you don't have to take my word for it, take it to someone else.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
This is one thing I can honestly say I'm great at: diction. Tones, metaphor, style, grammar, parallelism, spelling are fine (of course, I wouldn't have to check spelling if most people would just pass their stories through a spell check before they posted it)
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be a little close-minded about where people take their story. In fact, generally, I like to stick to the canon as much as possible. Or, if I'm making it AU, change only one aspect and keep the rest straight-forward. Otherwise, I find it gets too confusing.
Also if you have a idea that completely delves away from the main aims of the book, i.e. Harry Potter is secretly a secret FBI agent infiltrating Forks, Washington in search of vampires or such, I probably will laugh, point, and laugh some more.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love stories with themes deeper than romance and nuanced humor.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No yaoi or constant and explicit sex. Also, keep the differing POVs to a minimum, please. I hate it when perspective switches every sentence.
Again: no cross-overs. As fun as it is, Harry Swan is not a plausible person and I refuse to read abut him. Neither by the way is Isabella Potter. Or Edward Dumbledore or Sirius Newton. Also, the Cullens did not go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
I also dislike invented characters. I mean usually stories give you enough names to work with; just shuffle the names around.
