|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a novice beta, but I'm a bibliophile to the core. I will read over anything sent to me, discuss perceived strengths and weaknesses and offer suggestions. I will of course do any cleaning for grammar or spelling errors I find, as well as off suggestions if I think the wording can be improved.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My greatest strength is my love of reading. It gives me a fairly good grasp on how a story needs to progress to grasp and maintain attention. I am also a rather good judge of foreshadowing, being able to tell if it's to heavy or if certain plot points aren't alluded to as much as they should be, and whether it should be foreshadowed at all.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is probably spelling and grammar. While I'm confident enough to offer assistance as a proofreader, it's only through practice and spell check that my spelling is at a applicable level. I also tend to go heavy on the comma.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My preferred genres are adventure, mystery, and humor. Likewise, I'm a sucker for romance and enjoy having some for a subplot at least.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I like a good horror story, but I often struggle with overly dark or gloomy subject matter. Dark adds a little favor, grim dark just adds depression. Original character focused stories also tend to annoy me, although if the character is good or need, I don't mind it as a main character. I despise bashing fics, even if I will accept a level of it if needed for story purposes. I'm also not much of a fan of AUs, although again, there are exceptions.
