Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm pretty new to this beta reading gig. Usually the stories that I peer-edit are written online by friends or actual friends, so there's been some practice but it has a narrow scope. For the most part, I have proper writing and grammar and I'm proficient in the English language. How can I not be, when it's all I've known for 19 years?

My vocabulary isn't some extensive, fire-breathing beast; it's actually a petite little lamb. It's a tiny thing, so I feed it words via the thesaurus and google. Usually I can grasp at the context at which I'm supposed to use the word in. I can help you develop your plot, build your characters, and help you with descriptions. I can proofread your grammar and tell you which sentences flow smoothly and which don't. I won't sugarcoat things, and I will tell you what sounds awkward and what doesn't. No, I'm not some master at the English language-far from it, in fact. But I'll be candid with you, and expect you to handle my criticism with grace.

What I'm expecting from you:

- Someone who can handle constructive critique

- Someone who is already somewhat adept at writing, but just needs someone to look over their stuffsss

- If your genre/category is something I'm not familiar with, feel free to still hit me up. I can't help much in terms of plot, but I can proofread for any grammar

- Be nice. I'm reallyyyyyyy nice

- Have patience with me. We all have lives, yo

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- varying sentence structures, integrating thoughts, character interactions

- writing casually, or writing something that requires a higher level of diction

- good grammar, to some extent

- descriptions, when forced

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
- descriptions, when not forced

- the idiosyncrasies of the human language, and more technical grammar rules

- complex plot developments

- those long, boring development paragraphs that you kind of want to skim over, but that's also essential to read

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
- animes or series that I know (although this is not mandatory)

- original concepts

- romance, mystery, psychological, horor genres

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not really that picky, but since you're asking...

- sci-fi. I will do it, it's just not my first choice

- cliche stories. Like the one where the girl goes to an academy,

falls in love with a vampire, and gets herself two boyfriends. Or something like that.

- read the above line again. Just for emphasis.
