|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a beta reader who is very excited to be the first or one of the first people to read something before it is officially published. I also enjoy editing people's work because I know that it will contribute to the story's overall quality and make the author a better writer. I do not intend to be rude or harsh when critiquing and I will try to point out mistakes without sounding like I know everything there is to know about writing.
I expect clear communication and understanding from whoever wants to acquire my services. I don't mean to sound snooty, but if I can't understand what you're saying and/or you fail to understand the schedules of others, I won't be editing for you. I also expect people to understand that a beta reader is not equivalent to a professional who edits for a living. Yes, I will make mistakes. No, I am not a published author or a professional editor. I write fanfiction for god's sake! Now, this doesn't mean that I won't try to fix any and all errors I spot. I swear that I will attempt to catch as many errors as I can.
I believe that the author has the final say. If you disagree with something I point out feel free to leave it as is. It's your story.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Microsoft Word tells me that I have a decent understanding of English grammar and spelling. I refuse to make a definitive statement about myself because it is easy to overestimate your own abilities, but I will say that I have received praise from others regarding my characterization of certain characters and my ability to write long narration sequences.
As a betareader I am told that I am good at catching strange sounding sentences and words. Take it for whatever it is worth.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I find it difficult to finish stories that I think are too difficult for me to write. Also, I have difficulty getting characters in character, although this is starting to get better. I have tendencies to get locked into my comfort zone, rarely ever venturing out of it. As a result, I am extremely inexperienced when it comes to certain genres. I am also easily discouraged when faced with a genre that I believe requires talent to succeed in such as comedy or mystery.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm pretty much open to all stories. I'll still betaread the stories I say I prefer not to edit, but the feedback will be more limited.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to betaread lemons although you can still ask me to betaread them. After all, sex sells. I actually wrote a lemon at the request of a reader and I'm honestly not proud of it. I got a bloody nose soon afterwards.
Also, mystery and comedy are sort of off limits unless you're looking for feedback on grammar, spelling, etc or if the material is good or not (did I laugh if it's a comedy or was I interested in finding out who did the crime if it's a mystery). I can't provide you material for those kinds of stories.
