Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a long time writer, who has recently found out about the fan fiction genre. Before a few months ago, I mainly wrote short stories, parts of novels, numerous screenplays for movies and television, and several radio shows. I have never been published, but I have never submitted any of my work. I am often critical of my own work, and if you need someone who will not be realistic, you should find someone else. I desire to work with you do develop your characters, plot, grammar, and to make your story flow. I generally read the stories one time all the way through, and go back to parts I did not understand the reason for, or if there is a section that I really like. If you would like to have me read your work, please make sure that the spelling and grammar are completed to the best of your, and your spell-checker's ability. Before you request me as a beta reader, I would recommend that you read my profile, as it gives a little more insight into who I am. If you are still interested after all of that junk above this, I would be happy to work with you on your story.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a very strict code for myself. I do not publish a story unless I feel that it flows freely, with no gaps or overlaps. I am good at improving flow, identifying grammatical errors, and improving the characters.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Probably my biggest weakness is that I overthink a situation. I often second guess myself, causing me more trouble than I started with. My other weakness would be that I write for the ear, and not for the eye. I have been retraining myself to overcome that weakness, however, you may want to think about my suggestions before you publish. Every writer has a fingerprint, and it is important for your stories to have your mark on them.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am pretty open with what I like. I do prefer stories that have continuity with the franchise, unless they are labeled as AU stories. In terms of genre, I will beta read almost anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please don't ask me to beta any slash stories, or anything rated "M". I generally will consider anything else.
