Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I will try to give you as much help as possible with your writing while still allowing your personal voice to shine through. I mostly focus on editing and spelling, but will do what is asked of me. My expectations are that the writer is question has really tried to write the best that they could and don't expect me to write a story for them. I will tell you if something doesn't make sense or isn't explained properly. I have no problems with being critical, but it is helpful criticism. You have no obligation to listen to me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at shortening stories and proof-reading them for any and all mistakes. I am very imaginative and as such, enjoy giving the writer pointers or ideas on how to expand their story. I usually don't miss any mistakes and i am very critical. I focus on spelling errors and run on sentences, seeing as they are very prominent in most fan fiction today.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are grammar usage. I can tell you when you are using the wrong form of a word, but going into depth about pronouns or adverbs are not my forte.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy all types of stories, but I would prefer ones written for older audiences. It makes the corrections more challenging.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories meant to be mean or harmful to others or meant for a very young audience.
