Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I've been thinking for a while of offering my services as a Beta-reader, so I guess I'll try it out. I've done a little bit of Beta-reading for my brother's stories (which aren't posted on this site), although the end result was usually a big fist-fight (our writing styles are extremely different, so we tend to clash over plot points).
I should note that I have a distinct dislike of stories (and authors) that don't even try for quality writing. (“U” instead of “You”, etc.) I usually put a month or two of my time into a three-page story, and usually have at least three different versions saved to my hard drive. If you want me to beta your story, don't just type something up in Notepad. Use Word (or OpenOffice), take your time, and make it worth reading.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Well, I tend to prefer reading and writing Humor and Action/Adventure style stories (especially when they include grand starship battles), so that's the type I will probably be the best at beta-reading.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Well, the one thing I'm not good at is writing character interactions – I tend to mess them up horribly if I don't watch, so I probably won't be that good at beta-ing stories that include a lot of character interaction.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer writing (and, by extension, beta-reading) stories that are humorous, or extremely exciting adventures (especially if they include dramatic starship battles). I also have a distinct liking of stories with an upbeat mood- thus my liking of the Star Trek and Stargate.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I shall state this- I will not read, let alone beta, anything that would be rated an “M” (on this site) or an “R” (on TV) for any reason. Sorry. I will also opt out of any story who's plot involves serial killers (I find these plots extremely disgusting.) Once again, I shall state that I have a distinct dislike of stories (and authors) that don't even try for quality writing. (“U” instead of “You”, etc.) I usually put a month or two of my time into a three-page story, and usually have at least three different versions saved to my hard drive. If you want me to beta your story, don't just type something up in Notepad. Use Word (or OpenOffice), take your time, and make it worth reading.
Also, although I am listed for Doctor Who, I won't read stories related to the new series. Why? Because I don't like the new series.
