Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have a firm belief that critique of any kind, even of the inflammatory variety, can help in the improvement of one's writing. Sure, your own observations can help just as well - but keep in mind that it is only your own observations. Are you writing for yourself or for an audience? The audience may have some rather... questionable comments, but others are fairly insightful. Please, don't take my critique personally. I'm trying to improve your writing in the best way I know /

br /

Want to improve? Open yourself to the fact that your own views are not similar to other people. What you may hate with your very being could be considered as an epitome of high-class writing. And no, any perceived stab at Twilight from the previous statement is purely imaginary. br /

br /

Of course, that does not necessarily state that all critique is correct. Heck no. A lot of it can be plain insulting, subjective, or incorrect, but it does not pay to dismiss every piece of critique. Personal experience with writers too stubborn to learn have colored my views, unfortunately.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I place a lot of confidence on my experience with characterization and pacing. I also have a passing familiarity with some of the cliches and narrative tropes that tend to crop up in fiction - fan or otherwise.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My technical skills in grammar are not very good, especially when it comes to punctuation and sentence structure. I may have spoken English for most of my life, but that does not make me particular good at it written down. Tense shifts are also some of the hardest for me to spot, as it's a problem that I picked up at an earlier point in pursuit of writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Please read and edit your story before coming to me. I tend to miss grammatical mistakes, and you reading over your story first can help me and yourself a lot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do Yaoi or slash fiction.
