Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I read a story, I'm not looking for fancy devices or really great writing, I'm looking for enjoyment. When I beta-read for my friends, I will actively correct some grammar/spelling mistakes, and if I feel there's a not-so-comfortable section, give a reply/suggestion of how I would have written that certain passage if I was in control. I don't take offence if you don't follow up on my advice, and I'm usually here only to provide an outside point of view of your story. That is how I will beta-read for everyone else as well.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think I love drama, therefore, I can always tell if a story is too dramatic or not dramatic enough. I'd think I'm good at suggesting plot ideas or correct errors.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm pathetic. weak. terrible. and absolutely horrible at devices and techniques in literature. Please do not look for me to help if you need assistance around that area.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like drama. But I love everything else. I'm not good at beta-reading crack, 'cuz the only thing I'd be able to tell you is where I laughed " I'd also rather read shorter fics, around 20 chapters or less. But I don't mind.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't think I'd betaread crack simply because I can't give constructive criticism to the said genre, even though I love reading crack. I also would prefer not over-long fics of more than 30 chapters (unless they're 30 chapters of one shots)
