Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love reading and writing, I always have. Since I have written for most of my life, be it short oneshots or long fanfics, I know the importance of a beta. I know how helpful it can be to have someone go over your work, helping you along step by step through the long and tedious creative process. I have been a beta before, though not through, but I would love to offer my services for anyone in need of assistance. I tend to take the role from more of an editorial perspective. I don't interfere with the author's creativity and style while I may not agree with the direction in which the story or concept is developing. I merely offer my opinions. After all, what else is a beta for? As far as my expectations go, I prefer people who are honestly committed to a concept. After all, if you are not willing to take the time to put in the work, why should I? I understand how complicated life can be, so I honestly don't care if your work ends up on hiatus. Just look at my story Ignition, it's been in progress for a year. All I ask is that you be committed to and passionate about your work and open to suggestion and constructive criticism.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
One of my finer points is character development. I enjoy developing a character over time and gradually revealing their true feelings and qualities. It gives me something I can be proud of, which is definitely something I think every author should experience. I also enjoy writing detailed fighting and romance scenes, if that floats your boat.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am very detail-oriented. If your writing is sparse, I will want to spruce it up a bit. I think it is because I am a very visual person, so if I can't picture it, I can't get into the story. You've been warned :]
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not a huge fan of extremely short stories and oneshots. I like something that has the chance to develop over time. To me, that's a real story. I enjoy action and romance. Unusual or unexpected pairings amuse me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not enjoy poetry, or anything that could interfere with my enjoyment of the classics like Pride & Prejudice. Please, don't do it to me. I beg of you.
