Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
To be honest, I have no idea who I am as a beta-reader, my style, or expectations. But here's what I'll try to do. I'll help with grammar and punctuation and/or any spelling confusion. I used to go on inkpop for the longest time and I called myself a grammar nazi; although, I'm pretty sure I'm not even close to knowing all the grammar rules since I haven't finished my education yet, but I'll try my best. What you can expect from me is honesty. If it looks like I'm just tearing it up, it's because I actually care and that I want your work to be the best it can be. I understand the difficulties of writing. I've dealt with writer's block (even though my teachers keep telling me there's no such thing) and running out of ideas. As an aspiring writing, I would love to help out other writers.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths? Well I really have no idea, but if I have to say, I guess it'd be staying in one tense. Even though that can get kind of hard sometimes, I usually notice. And if I don't, I still try my best.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Dialogue and description. And apparently emotion. With dialogue, I just go by what I usually hear, but even then it's not good enough. Description is something I know I can work on. Even though I'm sure I'll never be as good as my writing teacher with description, it is definitely something I can improve on. Emotion. I posted a story on inkpop and another writer told me that she didn't know if my MC had any emotion because she never expressed any. I am most definitely working on that. I don't want my characters to be emotionless, because in reality, there is not a single person on this world that doesn't experience different emotions.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love romance. I'm actually a sucker for a good romance. Action? Love it. Adventure? I'll read it. Supernatural? As long as there are no sparkling vampires, then I'm good.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Okay. I know I said I love romance, but what I don't like is the lovey-dovie-cutesy stuff. It just makes me (or wants to make me) gag. Sorry if that sounded harsh, but it's true. I would prefer not to read yoai or yuri. I'm not anti-gay, I actually support gay rights, but I just prefer not to read them. I also won't read lemons. Limes. I have no idea what they are, but if they're anything that should be rated M, then it's a no.
