|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to help people make their stories better; that's the long and short of it. I really like to read and I like to make suggestions about characterization and style. I see the potential in all ideas and I want to bring that out. I also appreciate relatively quick updates so I try to find the driving force of the story and write it while you're passionate about it. If you take the time to write it and ask for my input, I'll give you my feedback and suggestions.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think my strong points are characterization and drawing out the emotions. For the shows I know, I know. I spend a lot of time (more than I like to admit) thinking about the shows and the characters and I have a really good grasp on their lives and thought processes. I'm also good with emotion and drawing out difficult moments in the character's lives. I like to put them back together after tearing them apart.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best technical editor. I can catch most mistakes but I know that I overuse commas and ellipses. It's something I'm working on and I hope that I can help catch some mistakes. I'm guilty of not reading carefully over my own work before posting but hopefully I can be that second barrier that can catch some of those errors before it's published.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd like most stories. I like Angst a lot and I tend to lean towards the Hurt/Comfort realm but I also do Humor and all other genres.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't hate slash or relationships and I do read them when they're posted but I don't know how helpful I'd be.
