|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
While I've had a fairly short stint of actually writing fanfiction, I have continued to read it in the years since I stopped writing. Of course, I have epic plans of restarting my completely lame stories and polishing them up to decency, I've chosen to Beta to get some practice and give feedback.
As a betareader, I look for flow and consistency. It is important that parts of the story connect and transition well from one paragraph to another. I usually do this sentence to sentence as well, making sure things make sense. I have been known to offer plot advice and suggestions. If things are happening way too fast and it makes my head spin, I will advocate ways to slow the plot and lengthen the story. Nothing wrong with a longer story, right?
Expectations of the author, give me feedback on my feedback. If you feel I'm being too nitpicky or overly critical, please let me know. I'm a big fan of constructive criticism but I know what it feels like when the person goes too far.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I will ask a lot of questions, in search of a consistent and accurate story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I haven't done much betareading. I've done a ton of reading and wished I could have more interaction with the writer, so that's why I'm here.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories that are written in the third person. This does not mean I will refuse to betaread a story written in first person, it is just a personal preference. I love canon stories and alternate universes, as long as the characters stay true to themselves.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not betaread stories that revolve around an original character, unless that character is a fully developed creation and not just the author's clone inserted in the story. Though you can consider this a challenge, I would love for someone to blow me away with their original character's interaction with a group of people I already know and love.
