Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Modesty aside, I am one of the better beta-readers around - not because I'm a great writer but because I used to be an English teacher. I have a long-standing love affair with the English language and thus I have familiarized myself with grammar rules, vocabulary, and spelling in my twenty years of education (I'm twenty six). I am not perfect, but I am patient with new writers and keep my criticism on a professional level. Ask my opinion, I'll be honest. Mutual respect is the key to a good working relationship. You have my word for my part. All I ask is yours, especially in the event I criticize your work or worse for your writer's ego, suggest revisions of entire paragraphs you probably slaved over for sleepless nights. Also, when I beta-read, expect some discussion on grammar rules when I deem it necessary.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, punctuation, grammar.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to obsess over sentence structure and sometimes change entire sentences which turns off some writers.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta-read drama, humor, romance, tragedy, and supernatural stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Action, only because I am a bad action writer.
