Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will give as little or as much feedback as you desire. Here to help with writing blocks, willing to chat out any problems you might run into writing your story, and more than willing to go into in depth discussions of your characters. I want to help you get your story where you want it to go! If there is anything else you need help with, just ask! I'll see what I can do for you!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Asking those questions the readers are probably going to ask. Seeing where you want the story to go and how you plan on getting there. I know that you put a lot of effort into writing your stories, so I believe that a beta should put more time into your stories than just telling you when to add/remove a comma. Additionally, having taken several writing classes/workshops, I am fairly strong at catching formatting issues. For example when to use quotations vs. italics, and catching spelling mistakes such as they're vs there vs their.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar. That being said, English is my first and only language, so I usually can tell when something is out of place, although I cannot always tell you why.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Admittedly, I'm a romantic at heart. Whether it's a happy ending or pure angst, I love the power or love. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good action story, but if the characters are going to have no connection throughout I don't find these are stories I personally enjoy. If you just have an idea though, I'd be happy to help you figure out where it could go. So don't kill your darling just yet.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
It takes a lot to shock me. So bring it on. I love that creative endeavors can be edgy and interested to see what you come up with. The only exception being racist or homophobic stories, because honestly it's just not cool.
