Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Much like anyone else, I love to thoroughly read stories and provide improvements that are deemed necessary. As both a pessimist and nihilist, I find it impossible for me to overlook flaws that present themselves in samples without correcting them.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My forte resides in detail and description (hand-in-hand kind of thing, if you will). In most stories I write, I like to ensure that all of the surroundings and interactions taking place are given to the reader so they can portray themselves to the situation. As writers, we are expected to provide the audience a thorough assimilation of the story's everything.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I believe most of my weakness can be found in relation to abstract thought, such as high-level metaphors or 'feelings.' I find these to be the hardest of methods to exploit in a story because feelings themselves are always dynamic; not one person will think the same as another and will have another way of interpreting a thought. Then of course, my knowledge is rather limited in terms of how to compare one item/situation/event to another for grand effects, say like comparison to Moby Dick to God (I believe that is one of the most defined examples in literature).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
To be blunt, I strictly prefer stories that relate to romance especially to a physical level. It might be because of my lack in that physical field that I'm invoked by it, but I can't get away from that stuff. Despite my novice knowledge of the real intimate feelings and experience, I can guarantee I can make one hell of a scene with vivid detail.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't explicitly say what would fall into this category. The best I could say is a story that lacks motivation or potential to continue for more than a chapter (unless it is meant to be a one-shot).
