Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been writing myself for many years now so I know how hard it can be to show your work to other people. Therefore, when I beta I try to be as gentle and as helpful as I can because in the past I have found that patience produces the most excellent results. That is to say, I won't be too harsh on your work but I will still point out everything that can be improved upon and I may have to tell you just edit certain things out of the story (I know it can be hard but sometimes less is more). I read a lot and I have quite an extensive vocabulary so I can help you pick just the right words for the situation. I also focus a lot on the flow and rhythm of the writing and I believe that great writing is what can turn an okay story to an amazing one. Also, I very much appreciate if the writer tells me straight out what they want me to look out for and what exactly they want me to do for them. For example if you want me to focus on characterisation, or if you just want me to edit for grammar/spelling etc.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
One of my strengths is dialogue. I will quickly notice if something seems unnatural or out of character. In real life I spend a lot of time just listening to what's going on around me so I know how people converse and how they relate to one another. My other strength is to help your writing flow and I am very good at making the writing, words and sentence structure fit the situation the characters find themselves in, as to help with overall emotion.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I haven't spent an awful lot of time on this site as of yet so I don't quite know the capabilities of the site. I don't know every possibility this website has to offer yet, but I am learning quickly and hope to over come that little hurdle.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Unless I find something very offensive about your story, then I will beta for pretty much anything. Long stories, short stories, romance, non-romance, I don't mind.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm sorry but I won't beta for incest ships, if you like them that's great, they're just not my cup of tea.
