Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I need to be hooked from the beginning, so make the opening interesting. Otherwise, I tend to drift and won't end up reading the rest of your story. I'm an honest believer in CONSTRUCTIVE criticism and I won't insult you or make you feel low for doing something wrong, but I ask that you at least proofread before submitting your work. I see betareading as a kind of learning curve for me and whoever I'm betareading for, so I'm really happy to help out, it doesn't feel like a chore to me.

Also, please allow delays between communications due to time difference or just me being dippy.

I probably sound really serious from this, and I am when it comes to improving writing. However, I like to think I'm an approachable person. I won't bite! Honest! :')

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
After this summer I'll be starting English at university, so naturally I'm a grammar Nazi. My strengths lie in convincing dialogue, imaginative description and the present tense, but recently I've been working on my 3rd person and past tense.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I think that my character's are all a bit alike, or I regurgitate old characters with new names. But I'm working on that. Also, betareader wise, I have a short attention span so HOOK ME FROM THE BEGINNING.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Horror and Supernatural are my forté, but I'm honestly not picky; I'll read whatever.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slushy romance. Make it cute and romantic, not vomit-inducing. I read too many teen books where the main boy and girl just make me want to hurl them off a cliff and be done with it. Not saying I wouldn't beta a teen romance, there are some really good ones, but if you need help making yours not seem cheesy then I'd be happy to help.
