Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have loved writing for years and have striven to be a successful writer in all areas of writing. My hope as a beta is to assist other writers in making their stories easier to read and therefore more enjoyable to read. I have written stories for over five years and taken college English courses in my senior year of high school. I look for grammar, spelling, incorrect uses of words, and generic formatting. I give suggestions for different word choices, and love to have ideas bounced off me. I love hearing how others think, which is what I believe writing to be, a form of thinking. No idea is without merit and I have gotten much better at plots, big pictures and the rest of that category. I do not critique without love and if I seem harsh I do not intend it. I will expect any one that wants my help to be willing to carefully take into consideration my beta-ing but it is ultimately their decision, it is their story. Not mine! :) As you could see from my profile, my own stories and my favorites, I have an eclectic taste in a variety of subjects, pairings and genres. Finally I would like to say that I will also include with my beta-ing encouragement and details of all the parts that I love, I tend to be overly supportive according to a friend that I have helped with writing.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, sentence make-up and so on in that category are my major strength. I also do very well with descriptions and dialogue. I have some experience writing fight scenes so I can assist on that but they are not my strength. I also am getting really successful on the emotions, thoughts and circumstances that involve actions for characters. I am willing to do research for an author and I have several strong resources on writing that I can call upon if I do not know writing rules off the top of my head. Plot is hard, but it can be done! I am good at connecting talking of characters to the exact character so the reader does not get confused.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Romance not a strength of mine, while I like reading it, writing it is not as good. Plot until recently has escaped me. But my college writing classes have giving me a better understanding of plots and thesis following. No story is ever written without a point in mind. I can help with finding that point and making a plan of action for the story. I do struggle with comma splices and wandering around with some ideas and points. I do not do especially well with coming up with ideas but when I do I stick with it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Nope I do not have a real preference but if I am not familiar with the subject I will not really be a successful beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta smut, or heavy make-out scenes. I am a Christian and therefore have boundaries that are somewhat stricter than another betas. I will not beta slash or animal-human relationships. They are both against the Bible and therefore I am against them. Other than those I am pretty free-ranged.
