Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey! So, I've been on this site for quite a while and have written a few stories. People seem to like what I write, so I figured I would try this beta reader thing. I only ask that if you request me for a beta reader that you be totally open to honest and constructive criticism. I love to write and am in the process of writing an actual novel, so this isn't something I just do for fun.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at reading characters. The first thing I will notice about any work is whether or not the characters are 'in character' or not. I don't like to write something unless I can actually see it happening. I'm also very good at finding plot holes. If something you say at the beginning doesn't quite line up with something later, I'll notice and ask about it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Honestly, the only thing people have typically corrected about my proofreading, is that I need to learn to be nicer in how I critique. I have very high standards for myself and have a bad tendency to project those onto other people. I am working on fixing this and am not nearly as bad as I used to be.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like stories that delve into the inner thinking of characters; stories that analyze motives and unspoken desires.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm sorry to do this, but I will not accept a request to be a beta reader for a story with an M rating for sexual situations. Thanks for understanding.
