Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I want to help you write a story that you can be proud of and that others will truly enjoy. My expectations are relatively high, but not unattainable at all. I'll provide a lot of help in reaching them. I won't touch your work myself unless it's to correct technical errors; if it's a story change, I'll give you suggestions. I don't care how long you wait between updates. I don't care if your story has a plot that is weird beyond words (actually, I welcome that). I don't really seek to tell you what to write - I just want to help you do the best you can with whatever subject you choose.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and spelling are two of my strongest writing abilities. I have a large vocabulary, an ability to avoid the cliche, and an eye for crack pairings. I'm also good at keeping things concise instead of drawling on about things that could be summarized in fewer words (lots of people don't understand how important that is to keep a reader's attention). I can help you generate plot ideas, I can help you understand characterization, and I'm analytical.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a tendency to nitpick small details. I may occasionally forget my manners and be too blunt. I overthink things. And I will sometimes get stuck in a prolonged creative rut where I'm hypercritical of my work and have to step back for a while. This doesn't interfere with betareading, though.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Adventure/drama stories enter here! I feel most in my element with excitement and plots of doom, sometimes with a healthy dose of romance tossed in. I love examining the interaction between pairs of people. I'm enthusiastic about almost any genre, so cast upon me your stories of angst, science fiction, and/or horror, unusual though they may be. I'm addicted to dystopian futures and zombie apocalypse stories. If you've got a crack pairing (especially crossover), do let me betaread it!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
NOOOOOOO SMUT. No smut. I'm not saying no sex - sex is a part of life and of literature. But I can't betaread exceedingly graphic sex scenes, and definitely not exceedingly graphic sex scenes just for the sake of sex. I will betaread almost any pairing that is not incestuous or nonconsensual, but I reserve the right to be uncomfortable with pairings that are neither of those things. No songfics, please (or did that trend already die out? I saw a lot of those in 2009). To be clear, songfics are the ones where you actually put the lyrics in the text - if your story is just inspired by a song, that's totally different.
