Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have over 8 years of experience editing essays, books, and short stories and am an avid reader. I haven't been writing for long, but I'm enjoying learning to apply my understanding of technique and what makes a good story to my own ideas. I hope I'm getting better every time I write, but whether I am or not, I do know a well-written story when I read one. Also, I'm much better at helping polish a story than I am creating one from scratch.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm quite good at the technical aspects of writing, such as grammar, spelling, punctuation, and word usage. I'm also good at editing for flow, content, and plot, but those aspects are more a matter of opinion. I've taken classes on how to be a good critic and evaluate a story on its own merits, not just my enjoyment or attachment to it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm fairly busy. I can also be painfully blunt, so if you're too attached to your work or if you're sensitive about it, you'll at least need to let me know I should be gentle.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer reading work that can be taken in smaller segments. A chapter at a time is fine if it's a longer body of writing, but I'd prefer short stories. I'm willing to read any genre. Happy endings are completely optional (optimist though I am, I have a fondness for darker tales.)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There isn't a simple way to classify what I wouldn't be interesting in reading. Please don't submit a rough or first draft unless you're looking for some feedback on content in general, polish it as much as you can on your own. I enjoy editing, but there are limits. If your story is AU, please have plot-derived reasons. This is fanfic, so it's all somewhat AU, but the reason I like fanfic is that when it's well-written I can get more of a story I've already enjoyed.
