Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been writing for a good few years and would like to help others to reveal their writing skills. I will tell you if I dislike something but I will do so gently, having written myself I understand fully that anyone saying anything bad about your work is hard to hear so I will be gentle. I'm open minded about all plots and am willing to give anything a go. If I do agree to beta your story all I ask is that you listen to my suggestions, respect my time and the hard work I'll be putting into reading your story and be willing to discuss any points that either of us may come up with. I will help you brainstorm to an extent and may offer suggestions on where the plot should go but I won't write the story for you, it should come from your heart :)
I will expect all docs to be sent to me fully spell checked.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with spelling, grammar, layout, character descriptions and development. I have extensive knowledge of Billy the Kid, Old West history (everything from clothing, weapons, riding, life on the plains, food and drinks etc), both Young Guns movies (have been a huge fan since I was 11, I'm 27 now), I have the scripts for both Young Guns movies and will happily help you out if you want to know the dialouge etc from them. I'm also happy to share any of my tips on writing with you.
I will also review your story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to be a sucker for being historically accurate and this may cloud the way I see things if you are not intending to stick to the way things were done back in the day. I'm not too fond of Mary Sues, I used to not mind them but now I've just read too many stories containing them and I find them boring. I will point of if I think your character is a Mary Sue and if you wish I can help try and combat that. I may not be quick with getting your story corrected, it may take me a week or more to do one chapter depending on the length. Feel free to discuss this with me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Young Guns andLonesome Dove saga only right now, although do ask about other stories I may say yes :)
I like romance stories but they must have a little bit of depth. I like darker stories and I love getting into a charaters mind.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
