Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm (from what I'm told) easy to get along with. I enjoy reading just as much as writing, or in this case, modification of writing. I'm a strong believer in consulting the author if there is a correction that i'm not sure about. I believe in good communication, and firm team work. My beta-reading style is fairly straight foreward, I like to keep everything the same, and only make minor changes to enhance understanding and improve the use of language in the overall work. I would like some basic information about your story, like estimated completed length, warnings, Genre, Ect. Oh, and I'm new to this, so please don't sue me!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I read at a post-colledge grade level. I excel at finding double meanings, understanding nebulous concepts, and making writing sound more educated, formal, and well written. I pride myself into working quickly, though whether this is a strength or weakness, I'm not all too sure.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm inaccurate. Very inaccurate. It doesn't help that my mind automatically substitutes missing letters and words when they are obviously missing. If there are ten mistakes in a chapter, I can pretty much guarentee to miss three or four of them my first time around, so I require a small bit of patience. Just know I don't do it on purpose to spite you. (or the reader for that matter)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, I typically only read what intrests me, mostly only things that I've seen, or read, or, at the very least,things where I have some sort of grasp on the concept. I'm a sucker for Romance and Angst, with adventure, action, and possibly a little random humor... Oh! and Hurt/Comfort stuff too. I love reading heartbreak tales every now and then.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Crime, Horror, Or Western, by themselves or with eachother is a no go. br /

Lemons are a maybe. It depends on how artfully it's written: If it's rushed and obviously lacking, with crude form and numerous spelling failures, no. If there was time and insight put into the characters feelings, (physical, mental, and spiritual) then maybe. It has to be written art for me to give it a second glance. It'll be an unbiased decision by me at that point.
