Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to edit for sentence fluency, structure, mainly grammar. I don't like to edit plot mainly because I believe the author is responsible for that. The editor only adds meaning and depth where it is needed. I would expect spelling and other conventions to be up to par. I am open to translating and editing if anyone would like it - I can translate to French, or from French to English. As a beta, I like to work closely with the author to try and revise for plot clarity. Was that supposed to be a metaphor, or was he supposed to say that/do that/be there? I'm not one of those people who gets a draft, writes in the margins, and gives it back. Writing is a collaborative effort.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I know my grammar, and as a lover of poetry, I understand word use and fluency. I also have a firm grasp on descriptive language, realistic dialog and characters.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have trouble coming up with realistic plots, although when I have one, I can expound upon it readily. Sometimes, a sense of time is lacking in my writing, which confuses readers easily.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta alternate-universe or historical time period stories. I would also prefer betareading stories with a more serious than humorous tone. I like humor, but not purely humor.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would not like to beta fantasy, supernatural, or purely humor stories.
