Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am open to all kinds of stories. I enjoy betaing anyone's work. I will be truthful. I will tell the author what could be changed, and offer suggestions in areas such as spelling, grammar, word choice, and even plot. My opinion is obviously not the only one, and i highly recomend having more than one person beta your work, but I am a sufficient beta reader who will be honest in telling you what could be changed, instead of just saying that "it was good."
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel in spelling and grammar as well as story progression. I read closely so as to miss as few errors as possible, and then re-read to comment on the overall plot outline and sequence. I like to think that i have a good sense for how stories will keep readers interrested while making sure that the stories are also comprehensible. I also critique the accuracy of stories as much as possible because accuracy in their relevence to the subject is incredibly important in my book.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do have the most problems, especially in my own writing, when it comes to tenses. I get caught up so much in the story that i will switch from past to present frequently. In other people's works i seem to catch on to this error more frequently, but it is the most comon error that I will miss.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer stories that i am familiar with, simply because i analyze the accuracy to the subjects in great detail and it is harder when i am less familiar with a work. However, I am most definately open to any stories that are looking to be read whether i am completely familiar with the subject that they are based on or not.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not read stories that have not been proofread by at least the authors. Short stories are fine, and welcome, and so are long, however, unnecessary and improper use of words in the english language are not welcome.
