Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm generally a stickler for grammar. If you're grammar or spelling isn't right, I will make revisions. Awkward sentences kill me - nothing ruins the mood faster than a sentence that just doesn't read well. Instead of saying "this is wrong, fix it", I will make suggestions. Doesn't mean you have to follow them, because in the end, this is your piece of work, I'm simply a 3rd party to help you out, but it would be wise if you did. Most of the time, I'll take about 1-3 days to read the whole chapter, find everything wrong in it, and send it back to you for corrections.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and syntax (sentence structure). I like to iron out all the sentences and weird, awkward twists that happen within. I also check for story fluency - how the plot stays within the bounds the writer was attempting, and what can be taken out, or be put in. As long as you give me a clear picture of what you're going for, help you out.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Big words are not my forte. As much as I like to brag about my grammar, my spelling and diction has kind of taken a dive over the years. I generally catch most spelling errors, but it doesn't hurt to read over the entire chapter once again, slowly, word-by-word after I get back to you. That's what I find helps the most.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy romance, because hello who doesn't enjoy a little love in their lives, and action. Hurt/Comfort, Friendship, Drama, Crime, Angst. It's all good in my book.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
My cup of tea really depends on the story. For some couples, I won't read angst about them, and for others, I won't read a lemon. It really depends on what you send me, and the characters you're attempting to write about.
