Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an active Beta, and I tend to discuss out the stories that I will proof with the author. I do give suggestions,a nd will be as pro-active int he writing and editting process as you wish for me to be. I can be a simple spell checker for you, allt he way up to and indcluding the equivalent of an on-call editor for you to bounce ideas critiques off of.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am really good at looking at flow of a story, as well as character development, keeping track of what has happened before in a story to help develop what will happen nxt, and character interaction, for drama, angst, romance, and even comedic purposes as the story and scene dictates.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness would be probably procrastination in my own stories without a swift boot to the kiester. I also tend to be detail oriented, which at times can de-rail pacing in some of my own stories. I try to create the prefect balance in my stories, which sometimes leads to too much focus on some characters and events, and not enough on others.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to Beta stories that are well-developed, including character growth and development. I tend to prefer stories that stick to the core character concept from their original series, even if they are put in new, amusing, or enlightening situations that may help the character grow beyond their original concept as presented in their core series.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi, Yuri, Shota, and smut in general for the sake of smut. If there is some kind of story behind the sex, or the relationship in general, and it is presented in a relasitic fashion, I am all for giving it the once over. I am not fond of overt amounts of mindless violence and death without reason, and making any character Godlike who otherwise would not be is an automatic red flag to make me walk away. (A Bruce Almighty situation or an Ah My Goddess or Aladdin, sure...but destoryer of worlds because you really like the character...oh no, not for me)
