|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am pretty flexible and willing to beta to your preference. I can be as hands on as you like, so please let me know! I offer a lot of constructive criticism and "what ifs" as well as ideas for story direction. I tend to present many ideas with the hopes of bringing in other perspectives to assist you in moving the story forward by thinking about many different angles.
Please have good command of the English language. While a few spelling errors or grammatical flubs are bound to happen- and I am happy to assist in fixing them- I don't want to be completely distracted from the story itself!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm fairly good at getting rid of your adjectives and getting to the actions and quirks to describe where you're going with the story. Sensory details and human emotions are also my strengths, as is train of thoughts and getting within a characters head. If you need assistance with wording things, or have difficulty knowing exactly how you'd like to present something, I may be able to assist there as well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When critiquing I read slowly and thoroughly, so it will complete but it won't be instant. It will take me a little time to get back to you.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Slash and femme as long as fitting. I will also do het. Pairings are important as long as the human connection and plot works with it and it is not completely without rhyme or reason. I prefer supernatural, suspense, action and the likes. I'm also a huge fan of stories driven by the human element- meaning even if there is not a TON of action, things that are very emotionally charged and deal with emotional awakenings, coming to terms, etc. are also awesome. Human relationships (platonic, antagonistic, romantic, etc) and connections can be just as interesting as saving the world from impending doom.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Comedy. Strict romances. Gratuitous sex (I'm fine with editing sex scenes but if every paragraph for the whole story is a bonerfest, I'll lose interest pretty quickly). Twilight. Mary sues and original characters with the depth of a shallow dish.
