|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)
