Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I know finding a good beta can be difficult, particularly one that fits a reader style. So first let me say I am an first time beta, however I approach everything with a pretty critical eye. I know that we can all learn more - me especially - and I will improve as time goes on (both beta skills and my own personal writing). I also intend to raise the skill level of everyone. I will admit, I always aim for top quality work so I may be a bit difficult - but I am always looking for the strength in a work. Especially if it is things I can't do. br /

My two favorite things as far as narrative structure is concerned are believable character interaction and credible world developmental. Which means I work on both ends of the detail/big idea scale. I love to help people codify their ideas and learning how to express their ideas. While in someway I think in detail "piles" I tend to be a little picky when it comes to how details are presented. Though I have problems in my own work with it sometimes - I am a firm believer in letting the read's imagination do the work. So more than likely I'll be working with a lot of those exact image descriptions and asking you to develop narratives that explain it as they go along - leaving all unnecessary details to the /

I am a storyteller, first and foremost. I am fascinated with good, well told stories. So if I had to pick a place where I would be most persistent, I would focus on further helping you learn to build a better story, or helping you develop a better br /br /

I will enjoy working with you I think.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Good stories, pretty much that's it. Though I would preferred things to be larger than two thousand words if possible. I'll probably do things smaller - but they'll probably end up that size or bigger anyway. AU are things that I enjoy, though series extension are cool too, parallel stories are also fun.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd like to avoid sexual content pleasebr /
