Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
In general, I am a fantastic editor with the exception of my own work. I need to read my stuff fifty times before I find the mistakes, but it's coming out my head. It makes sense in there. When I read other people's work, the mistakes like the misuse of the word to (two or too) drive me absolutely bonkers. I have an insane need to fix it. I'm also good with details and finding a dozens different ways to say something. If you get stuck or think something is weak, I'm ultracreative and loaded with ideas.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
No idea. I'm really bad at self evaluation. I can do humor pretty well (especially sex jokes and sarcasm) and dialog. I write interaction well and judge it well. If it doesn't work or is odd, I can tell you especially if I know the characters really well. If you want to know my personal strengths, I suggest reading my stuff. As far as editing, I do revising, editing, and grammar well. Can't spell worth a dam. In terms of genre, crime, suspense, and mystery are my best. I'm one of those annoying people that can figure out you knocked off Aunt Clara in a couple chapters. Plus I'm honest to a fault. I won't kill your work, but I'm not gentle if I don't like it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can't spell to save my life or your life. Please don't put my life in your hands if that is your issue. That is why God gave man the intelligence to invent spell check. I have successfully stumped my spell check virtually every time I write. If I don't know the background on a character or story, I could mess up your story possibly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Come one, come all. I'm open to most things, but I may not know the background on your writing depending on the subject. I know comics pretty well. I know DC comics extremely well. I live, breath, and love for cartoons except anime (bad animation especially when dubbed in English). Mysteries are my strength. I rock at deductive reasoning, so detective stuff goes well for me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Westerns and fantasy should look elsewhere. I don't read, watch, or tend to enjoy them. I'm too logical thinking for fantasy. The closest I come to a Western is watching John Wayne with my granddad.
