| AmberMoony 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 1 story | Legend of Zelda.
β : AmberMoony is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I greatly prefer stories that are complete. If your story is 'nearly there' and would be complete shortly, that works, too. I would rather betaread a whole story at once than one chapter a month (This also helps me spot recurring problems as opposed to one-time slip-ups, and give you better feedback. I tend to make specific notes, and can do so either in a separate document or inline as highlighted/noted text (OpenOffice/NeoOffice documents please!)
I do expect a certain amount of editing to have been done. I have learned to make rough drafts by merely putting all the information down that needs to get there. This would then be rearranged to follow a more sensible plot line, and a once-over for spelling, punctuation and grammar (at least spell check). That's the level that I expect when looking to betaread. Just a little more polished than the most rough draft. I am certainly willing to help with grammar, verb forms and tenses, homonyms and synonyms, and other 'basic' editing.
If you're looking for something specific out of a betaread, by all means let me know, and I'll try to accommodate as well as I am able.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
While I am no longer an English major, I do have a very clear grasp of the language. This includes spelling, punctuation, grammar, and style. I also have a mind for details, and can point out inconsistencies or patterns in your writing.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Right now, my big obstacle is time. I don't have as much time for reading as I would like, and it may take me a week or more to properly betaread a novel length (100,000-200,000 words) story. I also have a hard time conveying helpful criticism when it comes to style, especially without a desired direction from the author.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like romance and action/adventure genres. I have a soft spot for Zelda (video game series) stories. For either of these cases, I'm willing to go a little more outside my normal reading habits.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I absolutely refuse to read any story involving explicit scenes of sexual assault and/or rape.
Please no stories about underage sexual relationships, even implied, that's just creepy.
I'm not too big on religion/spirituality-heavy stories, either.
