Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader I will edit your work for grammar, spelling, agreement, verb tense changes, and a little bit on style (Are you lacking dialogue? Are your sentence structures too similar?). I expect someone submitting to have read through their work after writing it to fix any major mistakes or to have notified me that they did not if they didn't have time. I try my best to give only constructive criticism and will not take it personally if you don't take my advice on corrections. If something is unclear or I think there needs to be elaboration I will ask a question to show what a reader may be confused about in order to lead the author to make an alteration if the author wants. I will also re-word or re-write sentences that don't make sense, hopefully in several different ways to help clarify and give options to fix the problem. Again, you don't ever have to take my suggestions.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am great at catching spelling/grammar mistakes as well as giving advice on how to improve style (for example, including various syntax styles as well as point of view changes, when necessary). If someone needs story ideas, or to run an idea past me I'm all for it as well!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Poetry. So hard to edit and I'm not fantastic at it myself. I also am not great at editing stories that change POV every couple paragraphs because it just annoys me. As a writer, I'm weak in changing around my diction. I tend to use the same words over and over, but I tend to be good at catching that with other people.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love everything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Sonfics where the lyrics interrupt the story every few lines and extremely explicit love scenes.
