|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey everyone! I want to beta-read to help other writers improve their writing. Some of the most helpful times for me as a writer are when I lay my writing out for someone and hear what they think, even if what they think is that what I've written isn't working. That said, I will be honest as a beta reader. I promise to be fair with criticism, but I will point out something that isn't working. On the flip side, I will totally also tell you what is working and what I love about your story. Do keep in mind, any criticism or suggestions are in no way to say you're a bad writer, but to help you improve your own skills. You are welcome to take my suggestions or leave them as you see fit. Sometimes what I suggest may not work for you or your story, but I hope at least to give you a second perspective. I know that putting your writing out there for someone else to read can be a little intimidating, but honestly, it's the best thing you can do with it!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have an English degree, and am pretty good at copy-editing. I am strong with grammar, spelling, sentence structure, and word usage. I have also tutored English, so I have a good eye for what works and what doesn't structurally. As far as tools of a story go, my strengths lie in character creation/consistency and dialogue. I love playing with dialogue and can tell when it comes across as stiff or unnatural.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Weaknesses as a writer? Getting from point A to point B. Starting something and never finishing it... I'm probably not the best beta for genres I don't read/watch/am not familiar with - namely drama and romance. I am also a sucker for leaving canon characters canon, so it can be hard for me to beta for a story where a canon character is out of character.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like action/adventure stories with suspense, adventure, and growth of character along the way. I prefer stories with satisfying endings. That doesn't have to mean ribbons and bows. There can be death and war along the way, just please don't send me a story where everybody dies or the bad guy wins, unless there is a darn good reason. I tend to stick to canon couples in my own writing, but I won't bite if you've got a better idea.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a big fan of mindless violence/horror, rampant sex, or homosexual pairings. That being said, if there are plot reasons for violence or romance, I'm fine with that, as long as the story isn't just gory for the sake of gore or sexy for the sake of sex without plot.
