|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I'm tough. If I don't love it, I'm going to tell you so. I'm going to pick your story apart, not because I have anything against you, or your story, but because I think someone there providing blunt, honest guidance is a huge tool to a writer. It's a huge tool to me, when I'm writing my stories, and I in turn will provide the same toolset to you. I believe in grammar, spelling, and correct punctuation. I ask that you proofread your chapter at least once before sending it in to me to check. I ask that you at least take into consideration the critique I provide, and do not become offended if it's not exactly what you want to hear. And I ask that you have fun! Because that's what this site is all about, isn't it? :)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I will work on a dead line, and will work in an efficient manner. I am detailed. I will go through the story with a fine toothed comb, to say the least. I have solid character skills if I know the character. If the character is an OC, I am good at giving direction. My spelling and grammar is top-notch. I enjoy reading fanfiction, which I consider to be a huge benefit to a writer, as I have a pretty good idea of what it makes to allow a story to take off to fanfiction success. I am great with plot twists! And I enjoy thinking outside of a box, providing ideas that may or may not have occured to you within the writing of your story.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a sucker for generalities...I probably enjoy them way too much. I am brutally honest, and if I don't like something, I'll tell you it. (Because that's my job as your beta!) I overuse adverbs, which can again be a good thing or a bad thing. I have a hard time dealing with OC's who do not have some form of character depth. I cannot deal with slash. (I'm sorry, it's just not my cup of tea)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm really good on the romance and adventure side, and enjoy throwing some humor in once in awhile.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do slash at all...prefer to do nothing sexually graphic. Angst and I don't get along very well, but I will read it if the quality is there. If I don't know the fanfiction topic, I prefer not to beta it.
