Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a college student who is also a paid editor. I don't like lots of typos (you should be using at least some sort of spell check before requesting any services), and I don't like impossible/crack stories. I'm a harsh editor, and I don't tend to mince words when I edit, so if your feelings are easily hurt, I'm probably not a good person to go to.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I love grammar; I really excel at noticing flaws like a lack of parallel structure and deadwood. I'm fairly good at interacting with my clients, as long as they are willing to learn or accept that what I say is only to make their work better.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm blunt, and I don't always catch everything that I should; as a college student, although I am a paid editor, I'm also still fairly inexperienced. I'm also closed-minded when it comes to certain types of stories, and if I'm your beta-reader, I may encourage you to just drop what you're writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like serious stories and parodies. I like stories that really illustrate the strengths and the weaknesses of characters, and are done in an interesting way.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything crack or overly cliched. I hate mindless romances, and I usually dislike "Happily Ever Afters", although if it's still realistic, I'll read it. I also dislike anything with really obvious character flaws; I can fix grammar, but I can't fix a dying story.
