Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When i beta-read, I'm reading to see if your story is any good, if it's well written, and if the plot is interesting. I'm looking for any grammar mistakes, but I expect you to at least have reread your work before letting me beta read. I look for both dialogue and description; they are two things that go hand in hand. I don't like author notes mid chapters, incorrectly written dialogue, and writing nothing but dialogue. I want to know what the character is feeling, what that character has gone through, and what the character plans to do. I want to be able to read your story nine chapters in and say, "Oh, so now I understand why they mentioned that in chapter 2!" I want to be able to tell that you thought your story through before writing it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths include longer stories, angsty romances, fantasy, description and details, and imagining and coming up with story ideas and story outlines.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Weaknesses include coming up with different and artistic words, finding different ways to explain feelings and thoughts, and knowing when to end a chapter.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer longer stories, angsty romance, any kind of romance really, fantasy, different and interesting story lines, plot twists, and good and creative description.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Oneshots, stories where the writer clearly doesn't know where they're going with the story line, and anything that isn't about one of my favorite couples.
