Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey there! I think the most important thing to know about my beta style is that I nitpick other people's work much more intensely than I do my own. I'll throw a lot of suggestions at you that you can listen to or ignore as you see fit. Some will certainly be more important than others, but if I think it, then I'll let you know because I'm sure I won't be the only one. I won't *tell* you how to fix something unless it is a grammar issue with a specific solution; writing/plot/character things, I make suggestions for, but the ultimate "solution" is up to you! I'm a college student that tutors in writing, so I do this stuff a lot, actually, although it's normally with boring class papers instead of stories!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Dialogue and characterization. In my writing, I tell stories with characters rather than with intricate plots, so I'm good at helping you find character's voices if you're having trouble. I'm also pretty good with comma rules. If you're not sure if/where you need one, I've got you!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm slow. Being a college student, I get pretty busy with all that crazy real-world stuff, so it may take me up to a week to get back to you. Also, I may sometimes be a little too "nice"; so if you feel like I'm not saying enough or my comments don't really make sense, please let me know! Lastly, I don't write smut, so if you're struggling with your sex scene, I'm not the girl to get you through that.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
It's not *really* a preference, but I know a lot of people don't like to beta stories with OCs. I WILL. I love OCs, but be warned that I will call your butt out if I start seeing a Mary-Sue. I also really like reading about secondary characters, like Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter or Molly Hooper in Sherlock. But, I will beta just about anything, really!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to read male pregnant, rape, student/teacher relationships, or incest stories. In general, please let me know what, if any, romantic pairing(s) you have in your story. There are some pairings that I'd rather not read. I'd also rather stay away from *graphic* slash.
