Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Good Evening. I am Blackdove and I am now accepting Beta requests. I am a full time student and I have enjoyed reading since a very early age. I have an extensive library and knowledge of the proper way to compose a novel or short story. As an art student I have a critical eye for creative detail and no tolerance of mediocrity. Don't worry though; I am patient and willing to spend time discussing the finer points with the author.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As stated above, I have the time and patience to properly analyse and critique work. I do not touch an author’s original style, but grind out the finer points of characterisation, plot, accuracy and continuity. I am willing to research the subject matter to ensure faithfulness to the it and I have a decent knowledge of spelling, grammar and sentence structure. I am friendly and approachable, even if I am not afraid to give an honest and frank opinion. Finally, I am timely, usually returning a piece of work within a few days.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If the work I am reviewing is exceptional, then I will often get lost in the narrative and miss particularly stealthy spelling/grammar mistakes. As a student, my work will take priority, and so work might be returned later than expected. The author will be notified if this occurs. Although I enjoy some poetry, I am hopeless at reviewing it
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer the fantasy genre in general, but that doesn’t mean I won’t accept and enjoy anything else. I also prefer romance themes to be mature and complex – no clichéd or dull rehashed plots. I will bring authors to task for this. I do expect a literate level of paragraphing and vocabulary, but this is not essential.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not appreciate unnecessary smut. If I consider the work any less than mature and tasteful, I will be strongly tempted to discontinue.
