Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I aim to be a helpful friend in the world of readers that will support you in your quest to provide entertainment to those who read the creations of the innermost parts of your imagination. Warning: I will criticize you. If necessary, I will tear your story apart and rebuild it from the scraps that are left over. But I will always be sure to give you at least one good point. and I WILL NOT write the story for you. It is your story, and I can only make suggestions to you. It is up to you to decide if you will accept them or not. I expect anyone that is willing to work with me to be able to take abuse if their story is nothing more than a basic outline with paragraphs that are seldom longer than a single line. I also expect them to be willing to listen to reason. But I do not expect them to let me walk all over them. I will also do my best to not do that.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very strong in descriptions and in fight scenes. I'm also good with grammar. In some of my own stories, I have received many compliments about how I accurately describe scenes so that the reader can get an image in their mind. Plot line is definitely a strength for me, so if you need help with developing a plot or fleshing a story out, I'm your guy.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My greatest weakness is by far Romance. I've never really had any life experience of it so I'm clueless in girl/boy relationship moments. Another weak area would have to be fluff or filler stuff. If it doesn't have basis for the main plot, then I just have a hard time forcing my mind to create scenes. As a result, I have another weakness in character development.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
To be honest, I'm glad to help out with almost anything and everything in the categories of stories. If it has a plot and there is a point A and point B and we're trying to stretch out the line between them, then I like it. But I like it even more when there's a point C or even point D involved. Plot twists are my favorites, as long as I can't foresee them.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I refuse to beta anything that is nothing more than a mushy-mushy love fest. I can stand romance, but I have my limits. Also, things with very little suspense has absolutely no interest in me, so I can't help a lot in such a story.
