Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am fairly generous with large, descriptive words and I don't like poorly written pieces with so many mistakes it takes forever to get through. Short and sweet is usually my trick. I try to give as much constructive criticism with any piece, even if I feel like it's making my head ache, and offer helpful but unobtrusive directions. I have a compulsive need to re-write bad English, iron out the kinks in wonky structure and bash people with a first edition Websters.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, syntax and spelling are my main areas of concentration when editing. Second to that are characters and plot building.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I get annoyed with pieces pretty easily and tend to make huge changes when things don't work how I want them to.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Action, fantasy and sci-fi are my main arena, all being genre's I write regularly. I'm not good at romance despite excelling at smutty ludicrousness. I also love a good comedy.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I hate angst-y, over dramatic pieces and fluffy, puffball, fairytale ending pieces with no real narrative path. I don't do romance, self inserts or poorly written Mary Sues, and if you want me to read anything at all to do with Twilight, House of Night or one of those other horrifying Teen novels that should never have seen the inside of an even half way decent publishing house then I will hurt you. Badly.
