Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I prefer to Beta short fictions but I will also take the time to do long ones and series. It may take me a while to get to your piece and read through it, however, I only aim to improve and assistance in any way I possibly can. I may come off as blunt, but I aim to remain respectful and kind while taking care of business with you. I am not one to lecture a writer, nor do I claim to be an expert, but I will work through any errors and what not with a writer. I do not mind excessive language (cursing) but you may beware that I will give you hints on how to clean it up, make it less offensive and more intelligent. I would like to note that I will suggest, not force, changes; if you approve, then I will attempt to ensure the changes are made.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Proofreading is one of my strong points; I enjoy making sure the story in question makes sense. I mostly read over to make sure that I know what the writer wants to say before making any suggestions. I am extremely creative and am always willing to spread the cheer. If requested, I can help build characters and storylines if the writer is a funk, assist with plot twists, among other things. I have been told that I am a walking thesaurus, which can be extremely helpful at times.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a busy person, which means that it may take some time to get to your work. I also have a habit of being too blunt with things, making me seem disrespectful and rude when working with others. It should also be noticed that I am not perfect in anyway and may overlook something simple from time to time, because I am not a robot and catch everything.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will admit that I am extremely interested in same sex stories (m/m, f/f) but only if its tastefully done. I enjoy violence and passion in any story that I am reading or betareading. Please note: Passion does not just mean smut, the word means a literal strong emotion of any kind.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer not to even see bestiality and complete, utter smut without a good strong storyline. I am not a fan of 'drabbles' either, or pieces that are not descriptive because then there is really nothing to betaread at all.
