|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I tend to focus on theme, character development, and dialogue. I ask alot of why questions when I get a sense of an idea that is present but not fully developed. I've been told i have a pretty good ear for dialogue; meaning what sounds natural and what sounds forced. I really love the writing process and bouncing ideas back and forth until it's clear what the story is really about. I can be pretty blunt when looking over someone else's work, but i also try to be contructive and encouraging. Also please allow me a week to edit anything you might give me.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Dialogue as i mentioned above and dialogue in reference to particular characters. Just because you want a character to say soemthing doesn't mean that it really suits the character. Keeping up awkward sentences and breaking them down so that they are easier to read. Developing ideas and characters.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling...sad but true.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to stay in the LOCI realm since i know the characters and the show well. Wouldn't mind venturing out into any Joss Whedon fan fics.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
None that i can think of.
