Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey there! I've been writing fiction for as long as I can remember being able to hold a pen! They started out with the standard little kid ramblings and progressed in the obvious way. This progression is kind of the reason I like to beta; that sense of reading a piece of any standard and helping the author feel it got just that little bit better, even if I only altered the odd sentence or word. I've unofficially beta-ed a couple of fictions now and find it a very beneficial experience. I'd beta pretty much any fiction of any quality because that's the point of a beta really, the only thing I feel I'd expect from anyone asking me to take a look at their work is a readiness to accept concric because that's part of what I'll offer.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
When beta-ing (as with many aspects of life) I am pretty honest, but not rude and I like to ask constant questions about the piece, to make the writer explore it, so that no loose ends are left. I like to work with writing styles and ebb and flow as for me, that's one of the biggest parts of a reading experience. I'm quite picky so I'll always be highlighting any annoying little grammar or spelling errors that it's so hard to see on your own work, because you're looking at the bigger picture.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I sometimes find myself a little too picky but, when it comes to writing, I'm something of a perfectionist; whether that's good or bad in a beta writer I'll let you decide.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I, like anyone, have pairing or character preferences but for those just check my profile. I don't mind if you're pairing one of the people in a favourite couple of mine with someone else, quite the opposite actually. As for fiction types and genres, I'll read anything; AUs, one shots, multi chapters, long fics, short fics, fluff or angst. I just love fanfiction!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll try anything...I'm a fan of new things so that's great =) The only thing I'd find myself slightly hesitant about is anything massively OOC, but that's it.
