Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey all, my name is Wolven. I enjoy editing and reading other people's works very much, and when I learned about betareading I almost died and went to heaven. When I read a story I like to see a wide vocabulary and good use of grammar, as well as passion in the story itself. It is so easy to tell when the author is into the story that they are working on; I like to feel the emotion. Sensory imaging is a biggie for me because I think that the reader should be wrapped into the story; the author should be able to make the reader feel. What I would expect from anyone who would like to have me read their works is simply to take what I say into consideration. I am not out to change anyone's story into my own, nor am I wanting to hurt anyone's feelings. I am simply here to give ideas, constructive criticism, and help where needed.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Some of my strengths as an editor are vocabulary,flow, and imagery. My friends call me the walking thesaurus, literally. I can't stand it when there are certain words being repeated over and over to describe something, it takes away from the story for me. Also, I am good at tweaking sentences until they flow (eliminating the chunky feeling you get when reading a young child's homework). I think that vocab and flow are very important to the overall story. Lastly, imagery is one of my favorite things to use in my writings because I love the feeling of being in the story. As an avid reader, there is nothing better than actually feeling the emotion that the author is trying to portray.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
A weakness that I have as a writer is sentence structure. I am good at editing it, but when it comes to writing something out myself I am up a creek.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a HUGE fan of Megamind, Batman:Dark Knight, and Drop Dead Fred stories. Megamind would probably have to be my favorite of the three for general-ness, but my favorite character is The Joker. Any stories with him in it I would love to see. There are so few Drop Dead Fred stories out there, so I'm hoping that my beta account might lure some of them out :). I mainly like to read romance/hurt/comfort genres, just because they make me feel all bubbly inside and I have the most experience with them. For pairings between the three, I like to see Roxanne/Megamind, Joker/OC or Harley, and Fred/ Lizzie.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a slash fan, nor am I a cross-over fan.
