Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a professional writer, with two books under my belt. I'm currently writing a novel using all the tropes I've learnt to love and hate over the last eight years or so. I consider myself relatively "with it" when it comes to recognising a good story and picking out its strengths and flaws. I'm a hard taskmaster and a harsher reader. Please only apply for me if you want honest-to-God criticism.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I want to make your writing the best it can be. I've beta'd quite a lot of people before, and I haven't had a bad word yet. I know spelling, grammar and punctuation. I know how to make a sentence sound poetic. I know when to make a scene start and when to end it. I'm not perfect, and I never will be, but I want to raise an average story to good, and a good story to unstoppable.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I write in British English. I can be cruel. I'm not perfect. I like to have free reign in tinkering with sentence structure and whatnot, which some authors utterly despise. If that's the case, I'm probably not the beta for you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer well-written, serious fiction. By 'serious' I don't mean emo, wangsty or filled with abortion or suicide other 'serious' and 'edgy' scenes. I'm a big fan of stories that try to push the envelope with originality and characterisation, rewriting trends and tropes.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Romance and screwball comedy aren't my cup of tea, and humour revolving around slapstick or pithy asides from muses are a big no-no. In fact, anything featuring muses talking or the author leaping in to tell us things is not for me.
