|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm an English major. I do a lot of reading, a lot of editing, and a lot of writing. I'm very critical about what I read. I know how nerve wracking it can be to have someone going over your writing, so I don't take ages to go through submissions. With that said, if I do happen to be busy at the time, I will give you an estimate of how long I am going to be/when I should be finished. I know my limits and I am not afraid to tell you what I am and am not capable of doing. I genuinely enjoying editing. I find that it helps me to be more critical of my own writing. I don't believe in rewriting but I do believe in constructive criticism and I give a lot of it. I don't sugarcoat anything, but I'm never deliberately cruel. If something's not working, I'll explain to you why it's not and what you can do to make it better. With that said, I don't take it personally if you choose not to listen to my advice. Ultimately, you are the writer and it is your story, not mine. I'm just here to offer suggestions.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, punctuation, diction, characterization. Consistency. Atmosphere.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not particularly funny. I suppose I have a tendency to be melodramatic at times. In my own writing, I would have to say that my biggest weakness is integrating multiple storylines; I tend to just focus on one. However, this is not an issue with beta submissions as I am not the one writing them.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
The categories/genres listed below. I'm not terribly picky.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would rather not beta anything for shows I'm not really familiar with. The categories listed here are my specialties, but if you're curious about anything else, feel free to ask as I am peripherally acquainted with many more and am open to. In terms of content, I'm not a huge fan of OOC and/or AU stories (like the 'so-and-so meet in highschool' plot which has been done ad nauseum) but will read them if they have an original/interesting premise. I don't particularly care for graphic violence.
