Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My betareading style is pretty laid back. I like to give ever person their chance to really put their own individuality to the stories instead of trying to correct each and every aspect to the point that the story no longer resembles what the author originally wanted. In general, grammar issues bother me, so I try to be as perfect as I can be in getting that corrected. I also like the stories to make sense as far as time line as well as character aspects. My only expectation of an author that I'm reading for is that they can accept any criticism that may be offered and use it to further their writing ability in general. I normally don't criticize unless I deem it necessary, but I always try to find something good to balance it out.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strength is definitely in the use of grammar and punctuation in general. I will almost certainly catch any spelling error that exists in someone's writing. I'm also pretty decent at correcting continuity problems and helping to fill in areas of a story that need just a little bit extra to get to the next stage.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness as a writer is in describing things. I can read something that someone else wrote and tell them what's missing in the story that would allow me to visualize it all happening, but I have a hard time writing that into my own stories, probably due to the fact I see it already in my head.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I definitely prefer stories with happy endings over tragic ones, although I would gladly read either one.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to read any stories that contained excessive amounts of violence such as rape, abuse, etc. Having it occur once is something that I could manage, but not over and over again, especially if it isn't going to end up being a happy ending.
