Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been on this site for over seven years and I've written over 350,000 words between Marvel, Pirates of the Caribbean, Avengers, Repo, and The Libertine. I'm learning more and more everyday from the people I've met on this website. I truly believe that this is a wonderful, and encouraging environment to improve one's writing. I expect those who seek my services to be open-minded concerning constructive criticism. Most importantly of all, I love seeing writers improve and reach new levels!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I try to read everything with a critical eye. As a result, I tend to make a lot of suggestions in regards to sentence structure and meaning. I try to imagine the emotion and intent behind the pieces that I read. From time to time, I make a few word choice suggestions and switch words or phrases around - suggesting another avenue of writing the same thought the writer might have had.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
To be honest, I absolutely hate sentence fragments. I know that sounds absurd, but I'm only human! I also get a little twitchy when I see plain dialogue with no action, tone, or meaning.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My preferred areas of writing are romance, historical fiction, sex, action, and drama. I do enjoy stories with interesting, intricate plots, and well-developed canon or original characters. I will read any rating, but naturally, prefer more mature content.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll read just about anything from fandoms that I'm familiar with. For Pirates of the Caribbean, I write mainly within the realm of the first three installments. The fourth film was not my cup of tea. I'm also not too familiar with game fics or anime. Will refuse any fics that are written in chatspeak.
