Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I expect my main job will be to send you constant and annoying e-mails urging you to finish the next chapter and send it to me. That, and helping with brainstorming, providing a shoulder to cry on, etc. But don't get me wrong, I can do all that mechanical stuff too. I like doing mechanical stuff.(Mechanical stuff is a very technical term meaning editing and proof-reading.) I will be honest with you. You're not paying me so I won't worry about offending you. I may be a little rude, but I'll always tell you what I really think.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am really good with characters. Most definitely my biggest strength is with characters and making characters seem real. I'm good with grammar and word choice. I can also help you incorporate historical facts, myths and legends, science or medicine into your story. I know how to create tensions and suspense.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm the type to jump into a story head first and not really know where it's going. I have trouble being succinct. I'm not good at writing action sequences or romantic scenes that aren't supposed to be awkward. I'm really awful at creating summaries. It has to do with not being succinct.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer action/adventure or fantasy. Science fiction is also cool. I don't like plain romance, but if your romance incorporates magic, mystery, or some explosions, I'll love it. I also love crime stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
High school dramas don't really interest me, unless they've got the mystery, magic, or explosives. I don't like angst or emotional stories (unless there is mystery, magic, or explosives.) I like stories were peoples lives are at stake, in other words.
