Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a betareader, my goal is to make your stories as good as they can be. I want to help and to give as must honest advice as possible. I know that I would want someone to be honest with me but not brutal, so that is how I would treat others. I look for grammatical errors and keeping characters in 'character', as long as I'm familiar with the original work. I also make sure that the story is not boring or too obscure. And I have no expectations as to what you give me and promise to be open minded and not bias.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am best at writing in first person, but I also enjoy third person occasionally. My betareading follows in the footsteps of my writing, of course. The more dramatic and action packed it is the faster I can read and the better I will be able to give an opinion. I am also excellent at writing/betareading in either boy or girl's point of view.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am horrible at keeping characters in 'character'. I always want to change his or her personality into one that I like to write about, but over time I have gotten better at knowing when the character is heading in the wrong direction.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to read sweet romances with some action in them and preferably no smut. But I am also fine with just action, as long as it doesn't have too much gore. Comedy is very enjoyable, as is science fiction.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing too steamy, angsty, or gory.
