|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Team Anime!
As a beta reader, I would like to assure anyone who asks me to beta-read that I am not a fan of degrading writers. No matter who you are or what you write, I would never tell you that your story is absolute crap. I don't believe things like that, and I don't admire writers who do. Of course constructive criticism is something that's unavoidable as a beta-reader, and I have no problem with it, but I don't think that I could completely destroy your writing even if I wanted to. Getting to the picky part, however, I will bug you about character, description, setting, grammar, spelling, and most importantly, I will not hesitate to point out loopholes in your plot. If I have read the story you are writing about, and I see a part of your story that clashes with the original plot-line, I will say it. Again, though, I could not and will not be degrading to you in any way.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths involve descriptive emotions and realistic personalities. Most reviewers in my stories tell me that I have amazing description and that I capture personalities very well. I do agree that I think I do a good job of figuring out how a character would respond to a situation. I'm sure you've read a story about your favorite character on fanfic that you have thought, "Are we talking about the same character?" I will warn you now that if I beta-read, and I have read the original story, then I will be picky about characters' character.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My greatest weakness is probably my haste in writing. When I have a plot line planned out, I tend to think, "Why pace my writing? Why not just put it all into one big chapter?" Literally, I have never done that, but I sometimes have to remind myself that sometimes if you put big event after big event after big event, there isn't as much entertainment or suspense for the readers.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll read pretty much any genre, but my favorites are romance, adventure, suspense, humor, and fantasy. (*hint hint* especially romance)
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would rather not beta-read any gore or sex stories. This is not only because these are areas that I have written nothing about, but also because I just find gore unpleasent and sex stories difficult to beta-read. Also, forgive me if I am offending anybody, I cannot STAND Mary-sues and Gary-sues. I think that every character should have SOME flaw to them that isn't just a plot-device.
