Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As someone who loves reading and literature, I find that fanfiction can be the ultimate form of expression. The stories I read truly showcase the writing talents of the author, as well as there true feelings. As a beta-reader I like to first search out any spelling or grammatical errors in a selected work, and then analyze it for plot flow and character development. By proceeding in this order I can get a more accurate feel not only for the story, but the writer as well. As an avid writer I hold myself to a high standard and I expect those who would ask for my services to do the same. I expect those who ask for my assistance be able to take harsh criticism when it is due, and try to be objective when I give them my feedback.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a firm grasp of the English language and it's grammar system, more so than what is currently taught in public schools today. I have proofread term papers and essays by dyslexic students and deciphered their works, proving my capabilities for uncovering errors in spelling or grammar. I am a quick reader and have a knack for finding weak plot points and shaky characters. I am able to clearly criticize a work when it needs it, but am also able to give praise when it is due.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a weakness for romantic works and find myself judging them fairly harshly, sometimes straying into a more subjective critic. I also find myself having problems with the pacing of my own work, usually proceeding very slowly. As such I tend to harshly critique works that I feel progress down a romantic path very rapidly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta stories of a romantic nature over others, but I also enjoy horror or mystery stories as well. While these are my preferences, I am happy to beta any genre.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to beta any stories that utilize violent acts just for the sake of violence or entertainment, rather than as a means to develop plot or characters. Stories that inflict brutal acts upon their characters for no discernible reason are ones I would like to avoid.
