Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm fairly flexible. If you want something looked over, proof-read, the basics checked, I can do that, or if you're looking for a more in-depth crit I'm happy to do that too. I'll always try to be quick to reply.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with spelling and grammar, the flow of sentences, structure of paragraphs and the technical stuff like that. I can write a fairly rounded constructive critique in as much depth as you want. I'm also fairly good at dialogue. As a writer, I have experience writing in 1st and 3rd person.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer, I'm not great at pacing at a larger scale. I'm also a little lacking as a writer in description. Having not done much in the way of beta reading, I also don't have the experience others might have (I'm working on it though!)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not too bothered about the length of stuff I review. In terms of genre, I like fantasy and sci-fi, and I'm a bit of a stickler for Austen-esque period romance (What can I say? Only this: Darcy; Knightley; Brandon.) I'm also quite happy with crime, thriller, and mystery, though I've read slightly less of those in general. I can go with films, books, TV series or whatever format the original came in, but I prefer to read stuff that's in continuous prose. Any point of view is fine (2nd person, anyone? That's weird to read...) though I prefer past tense.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd rather not read anything overly violent or erotic. I don't like reading horror, tragedy, angst, western, supernatural or spiritual. I'd prefer not to read scripts for plays, films or TV, but comic scripts are all good.
