Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi everyone! I'm a pretty nice beta, I suppose- at least I'm not a task master. I am a master of discretion, and am pretty good at getting my point across nicely. I like to work by suggestions and examples, cos it's not fair for me to say that you can't do this/that unless it's like grammar or something. So I like to nudge, not drive you in the right direction. I'm also good and bouncing ideas for things too, but I prefer that in a PM than my being hired. As such, I expect you to take criticism. I'm pretty much a Randy- firm but fair.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Syntax, syntax, syntax! I have a way of knowing how sentence, paragraph and overal scenes flow best. Diction/word choice too. Style really-either in helping you sample different ones or highlighting your own! Description, litterary devices, pacing, comma usage, things like that. Pretty much nothing too technical and more creative-humor and angst feed well of it. So ways to make the characters/situation more interesting.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar. I can like tell if something is like WAY off, so I'm competent, but in the nitty gritty I'm not the best. The nitpicky stuff you don't notcie while writing, but when published ya notice. Horror is not my forte, so blood, gore, etc. Mysteries... And I'm a DC fan too XP. Lemons/Limes. ... No comment.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
By excerpts sent, nothing much more that than 1500-2000 a time. Helps me tackle bit by bit, so I can help you improve along the way. I'd gladly take 8 sessions of the same ongoing 8000 word fic, than one HUGE One to look over. Besides, my eyes start to strain much more than that when looking with a critial eye. 1000 and up- drabbles aren't really a big enough deal for a beta I think. Genre-wise, Friendship, humor, angst, family, romance, tragedy (none bloody kind), hurt/comfort. Third person point of view, omnipotent or limited. Not a big fan of first person, but eh. I'll do limey stuff, no lemons.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Absolutely under no instances yaoi/yuri. Not even flirting. No OCs- they irritate me much too much. Horror isn't good, or mysteries. And no Lemons. Crap you didn't even TRY on, no spell check or anything (give me text speak and I'll snap). Don't waste my or your time. Give me something you really tried on, something you looked over and are proud (or at least not embarressed by) of.
